What does Candy do?
Candy is a
confectionery food 3D printer for both home and professional users alike,
giving you the power to print with virtually any semi-solid foodstuff.
Simply design your creation on the computer, load it onto the SD card (supplied), fill up the dispensers with the food you wish to use and Candy will do the rest.
Alternatively, the supplied SD card comes preloaded with designs to help get you started right away.
Candy supports both 2D and 3D designs. Want to print lettering on top of a cake you’ve baked? No problem. Make custom chocolates to wow a loved one? Easy. Create breathtaking 3D decorations? Candy has you covered.
How is Candy different?
Candy is the
World’s only confectionery-oriented food 3D printer that is truly affordable
for consumers. With an MSRP of $599 (approx. £359) – or less if you choose to back the project
on Kickstarter – Candy makes food 3D printing truly accessible to a wide range
of consumers, as well as food industry professionals.
In addition, Candy
is SD card compatible. The included SD card comes preloaded with many preset
designs, making it easily usable right out of the box. Candy proves that 3D
printing technology doesn’t have to be cumbersome, complex and expensive. With Candy,
it’s easy, fuss-free and most importantly, inexpensive.
Candy comes with
dispensers that can be filled up with whatever semi-solid you wish with to use in
order to create amazing designs. We have introduced Candy with heated extruder so the dispenser will always be warm to keep the printing material fluid.

We now need to be
able to ramp up production of Candy to the scale that we require. This is why
we are looking to raise $100,000 (approx. £60,000). Pledging would mean being one of the first to
make fully affordable food 3D printing become a reality.
