Custom Chocolate Objects With This XOCO 3D Printer

Custom Chocolate Objects With This XOCO 3D Printer

XOCO is a 3d-printer that can create customized objects in chocolate, aimed at innovative restaurants, serious hobby cooks, and their guests. Current 3d-printers are usually technical, business-like objects, and with this project we wanted to show that also in this category it is possible to create a product which not only works great, but feels right in the food-centered environments where it is intended for.

The XOCO 3d-printer is based on a polar coordinate system with a rotating build plate and a single pillar from which both printhead and glass cover are suspended. Everything in the design contributes to giving the process of printing a visually open impression, adding to the experience of creating your customized sweets. Special attention is given to the interactive aspect of the process, with an eye-catching, multicolour LED ring guiding the user through the printing process.

All elements of the XOCO ecosystem of product, graphics, interaction, app and consumables contribute to a perfect creative experience for cooks and their guests.

The original idea for XOCO was suggested by Nikhil Velpanur. A version of the design was used to support an investment round for an Asian technology start up.

And... That's it!
