About

Story

Many people have a common problem; when christmas comes closer and closer, you can’t find the right christmas present for your friends and family members. Personally, I always try to find a personal present which will be remembered for a long time. But this is not always an easy task. 

So I thought about Christmas and what is typical for christmas time. And one of my thoughts was something involving chocolate and I really liked the idea because I don’t know a person who doesn’t like chocolate. And is there a better way than combing the infinit possibility of a 3D printer with the taste of chocolate, the sweetest thing in the world?! I don’t think so. 

Product

After a long time spent testing with different materials and settings I have the pleasure of introducing the most personal chocolate you have ever seen. By transforming a regular digital image, which can be taken with any smartphone or camera into a 3D printable model, I am able to produce a chocolate mould with your picture. 

At the end of the production line, you will receive a silicon mould which can be used to create your personalized chocolate picture. The mould is washable and also reusable – the gift that keeps on giving. 

There are some companies out there offering a chocolate mould with your favorite text or symbol – a nice gesture, but rather impersonal. Transforming your photographic memories into chocolate gives you the sweetest way to surprise your family and friends. Each chocolate mould is unique and produced only for you! 

Picture

Not every picture is suitable to become a mould. Most importantly there must be a high contrast between the main object and the background. The higher the contrast, the better will be the final chocolate cast. The main object should be as big and visible as possible.

For example: using a photograph of just the head when possible instead of the entire body. The higher detail on the picture, the better quality and more intricate the mould will be.

Health and Safety

An important issue when working with food products is health safety. That is why the printing material and the silicone for the moulds are both food safe and are both high quality materials produced in Germany. 

I need you

And now it’s up to you! If you like the product, please support this campaign. If the campaign is successful, most of the money will be spent on new 3D printers so that I will be able to produce better quality chocolate moulds in a shorter amount of time. Funds will also be used to improve and streamline the ordering processes to make the whole procedure easier for the customer. 

Thank You!

Risks and challenges

The development of the product is finished and the production line and Material is available. The only risk is a blackout of the printer but there is yet to be a problem so far that hasn't been able to be fixed in a short amount of time.
