Choc Creator is a revolutionary Voltron of Americans' two favorite things to do: screw around on the computer and eat. The first commercial 3D chocolate printer, Choc Creator Version 1, employs 10 mL syringes filled with liquid chocolate to trace and build designs users generate right on their computer screens. A stepper motor accurately controls chocolate deposition, while a high precision printing nozzle delivers fine and detailed strokes of 0.5 to 1.5 mm.

Manufacturer Choc Edge is currently accepting pre-orders for the printer with a 30% deposit. Lucky recipients will receive the desktop device with 2 syringes, 2 nozzles, and a small introductory supply of chocolate. The Choc Creator's build envelope (printing area) measures 6.9" x 6.9" x 2.8", large enough to personalize names in chocolate for birthday cakes, flip gingerbread houses the bird this Christmas and erect a Casa Chocolata instead, and build an enormous pile of chocolate...shells for edible home decor.

Chocolate printing is controlled using an open source 3D printing software, and the machine accepts standard 3D printing files (STL), as well as Gcode. The printer connects to Macs and PCs via USB.
