I got a question:
Which COATING material you can use in plastics to make it food safe (to use as a mold for things like chocolate and other stuff with low melting point)
Before you say PLA or PETG are food safe plastics, the process the plastic itself passes is dangerous (normal extruders can have lead in their composition, the plastic isn't always 100% clean or pure and the extrusion can increase the chance of small bits of the part "falling off" and gluing on the food).
Some people said Shellac is a food safe material, but that's made from bugs! Another alternative is to purchase food safe silicone, make a plastic piece and use it to make the silicone mold, but that method is overly expensive and takes up to 24 hours for a piece to completely dry!
So... the coating material should:
- Be food safe
- Have a melting point above 100ºc (even better if it's above 150ºc. it won't go to the oven, but molten chocolate is hot!)
- Attach to plastic
- Have no "unhealthy" properties (rusting, attracting too much bacteria, etc)

Hey guys, checkout the quality print i got of the Low Poly skull i downloaded from thingiverse. I really get surprised everytime of what the Anet A8 printer is capable of doing.
