Chocolate, sand with plastic, and paper based filaments would be neat

#1

Wouldn’t it be neat if the Anett A8 and prusa i3 printers printed in chocolate and plastic with sand particles as well as paper based filaments? I was also wondering how well the 3d printers would handle bio printing or if it even a possibility?

Well, Chocolate should be possible with some updates

For example with a Pastruder https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:10278

Sand, try LayBrick instead http://www.3ders.org/articles/20130527-laybrick-a-new-rough-3d-printer-filament-near-zero-warp.html

Paperbased? I can’t really imagine how that should work :slight_smile:

Bio Printing - possible but complicated

I thought about something like “Filastruder” print head for chocolate pellets ( and maybe other strange materials) - so you would be able to add more chocolate during printing. Or even if we would add low chocolate pellets detector it would be able to park print head somewhere and add chocolate pellets automatically. Just an idea.
