Make your own pasta with a 3D printer

Make your own pasta with a 3D printer

Italian food manufacturer Barilla and the Dutch research institute TNO have co-developed a 3D printer that will not use resin or plastic, but pasta dough.

From computer to plate

The formula is similar to a regular 3D printer: a computer will create a design, which is then sent to a 3D printer. Using semolina and water, it will create a pasta dough, which is then used to print the design. The resulting pasta can then be cooked and eaten.

 

This particular 3D printer is not publicly available yet and is only on show at the EXPO2015 in Milan. It does show that the limits of 3D printing have not yet been reached.

 

Italian Barilla owns several pasta brands and is also the world's largest pasta manufacturer. It controls more than 40 % of the Italian market and about 25 % of the American pasta market.
