You Can Now 3D Print in Sugar

May 30, 2013 | Kyle Chayka

Still freaking out about NASA’s latest efforts to 3D print a pizza, there’re even sweeter developments in the emerging technology. It is now possible to 3D print with sugar as a medium. New micro-design firm the Sugar Lab originally intended to 3D print an entire birthday cake for a friend. Due to their initial failed attempts, the team decided to compromise and, through much trial and error, developed a process to print out objects entirely made of sugar.

They provide little information about exactly how this method works but are quite excited to be working with other people to create complex sugary shapes on demand. We demand our logo. Delicious. (Images: The Sugar Lab)
