We've covered a lot of stereolithography, or 3D printing, in the past - and these stories have normally reported on how designers are creativing amazing furniture (and a soccer boot) using the technology.

We've covered a lot of stereolithography, or 3D printing, in the past – and these stories have normally reported on how designers are creativing amazing furniture (and a soccer boot) using the technology. Now Wired points us to CandyFab, a 3D printer (that's still a prototype) that outputs in granulated sugar at 20ppi. When it prints the sugar, it fuses it together using heat. You can see the printer in action by looking at the maker's Flickr stream here.
