Getting to know Xoco, a Dutch chocolate 3D printer

Xoco

Today I want to introduce you to Xoco, the 3D chocolate printer that you see on the screen, a machine that has literally been designed to manufacture fully customized pieces of chocolate, always making use by the user of a specific software designed by the company in charge of its production.

Regarding design, just tell you that Xoco is work of the Dutch studio owned by Michiel Cornelissen Ontwerp. As you can see on the screen, we are talking about a 3D printer that stands out for being inside a glass dome. According to those responsible for the design, it seems that the printer has been developed to try to be totally different from the sober and inelegant models that are currently on the market.

Xoco, a chocolate 3D printer whose modern design will surprise you

Thanks to the chosen design, it contributes to give the printing process a new open visual sensation that gives a high technological value to the creation of personalized sweets. Xoco has a circular base plate from where it is fed to a printing arm located in the central area. The printer is powered by dome-shaped chocolate ink cartridges.

As you can see in the video that I have left you in the upper lines, the central arm can rotate to allow the print head to move up and down or to the right and left. So that the user knows at all times what phase the printer is in, a kind of ring has been installed that surrounds the entire base and that lights up with different colors depending on if it is ready to be used, if it is in the process of elaboration or if, on the contrary, it has just finished the assigned task.
