Rapid prototyping, Mass production, 3-D printers, Three-dimensional printing, and Food science
Highlights from the article: In a German nursing home, for instance, 3D food printing is used to create customised food for residents that have difficulty chewing. Put simply, if 3D printing food cannot improve on the speed, precision or quality of traditional manufacturing methods, these devices are unlikely to be used in large-scale food production. For food development chefs, 3D food printing could provide an inexpensive way to experiment with new meal ideas, designs and food combinations.
Rapid prototyping, Electronic publishing, Three-dimensional printing, Print materials, and Prints
The article reports that the phenomenon of 3D printing is one of the technological innovations, which is becoming significant. 3D printing consists of a tangled web of materials, technologies, new capabilities and processes. Whilst 3D printing has been around for a while, the technology only recently became viable for commercial production.
