Hershey’s to develop 3D printed chocolate

Hershey’s chocolate scientists are print sweet that is distinctively designed. The confection business is taking its CocoJet 3D printer from 3D Systems to distinct displays through the U.S. to show chocolate fans how this futuristic candy machine creates distinctively delightful layouts.

Consumers interact with a library of 3D images on an iPad to get the machine to form several chocolate layouts – including laced patterns and complex hexagons. The CocoJet works on open source designs so it’s not impossible to upload your own layout to the CocoJet, also. Based on Hershey’s technology advertising exec Jeff Mundt, it’s a little more complex to get a figurine, but you could theoretically make yourself (or your crush pal) into a chocolate replica.
