printable candy by Djenaz May 4, 2010

Description

In Holland we sell these candy strings.

I Would love to try to feed them in to the Makerbot extruder and print my own candy!

this would be awesome if it worked.

I agree but the sugar printers are more expensive than the normal ones.

I've tried this and it did not work. This type of candy is made with flour and will not melt in the way we need. Test this by touching it to something hot and seeing if it melts. My testing was done with shoe string licorice from one store and does not preclude this from working with other candies.

I would like to see others give it a shot. Maybe there is a perfect candy out there sitting on a shelf waiting for one of us to find it.

Every single time I walk past the "Old Fashioned Candy" display at the drug store, I see these and I wonder what would happen if you put them into a Makerbot extruder.

They're certainly soft enough to extrude ... But that's probably the problem. I don't think they're rigid enough at room temperature for the extruder's feed gear to grip it properly.

That would be awfully messy with the normal extruder design.
Not sure what you would need to do to make such a thing work with candy "filament" but there are already sugar printers.
