It looks like the exciting world of 3D printing has become even sweeter.
Founded by MIT graduate Levi Lalla and Donovan Crowley, piq Chocolates uses 3D printing techniques to create custom-shaped and personalized chocolates for their customers.
Customers submit their designs and piq will create the chocolates for them. piq takes into consideration the texture of the type of chocolate that customers want since some chocolates flow better than others and this can affect the design and the process.
The company currently works with shared equipment and shared workspaces, so the founders are planning to open a combined store and production facility for piq Chocolates. The company is also working on an online tool to make designing and customizing chocolates easier for customers.
The Austin startup has just launched its Kickstarter campaign, and chocolate lovers and 3D printing fans alike still have more than a month to show their support.
