Cake drawing on 3 axis
posted January 14 2011 19:19.17 by Giorgos Lazaridis

A group of students from the Franklin W. Olin College of Engineering, Massachusetts, had a very delicious idea. They made a CNC that draws frozen drawings on cakes! A custom made drawing program written in Python is used to draw the desired cake decoration. The operator then presses the "Iím ready to design an amazing cake" button, and commands are sent to 2 Arduino to start the process. A pair of steppers is used to move the cake. The frosting plunger is manually positioned to the correct height. The tasty frosting is then squeezed out with a servomotor with a rack-pinion system. There are much still to be done with this CNC. Most likely, all students will gain some kilos during this project. We have seen before food printing from another university. I'm beginning to believe that knowledge brings hunger...
