3D-Printed Food is Carving Paths Across Culinary Communities
This cuisine moves beyond the whimsical to become a new edge for entrepreneurs
NASA has been investing and experimenting in 3D printed food since at least 2013. The ability to automate food-making gives astronauts more time to focus on their work and reduces waste overall. For NASA, additive manufacturing (the technical name of 3D printing) is being leveraged to print food and meet the mechanical needs of the crew.
3D-printed food is now expanding to affect people all over the world, and Los Angeles in particular thanks to the 3DS Culinary Lab.
3D Systems (referred to as 3DS) prides itself on offering a holistic perspective on 3D printing and all the facets of its evolution. They've recently been flexing their muscle through an innovation center which sits near Melrose and Highland in LA.
