Cakewalk3ds ambition is simple: to invent a new taste experience through 3D printing. The founder of Cakewalk3d, Marine Coré-Baillais, former director of Sculpteo, launches a Kickstarter campaign to allow owners of 3D printers to print their food at home. At the end of the fundraising campaign, they will receive a complete extruder that converts conventional 3D printers, as well as equipment and preparations. With Cakewalk3d, it’s time for cake designers. The Kickstarter campaign is launched on October 29, 2020, with deliveries starting in December 2020.
A new way to cook
The ambition of Cakewalk3d is to accelerate the activity of cake designers. Indeed, the creation of 3D flavors allows to make sweet, salty and even vegan preparations. About a hundred 3d models already exist on the Cakewalk3d library. Beyond a unique experience, Cakewalk3d completely reinvents the kitchen and the way of consuming, with the ambition to create a real community of cake designers who will share their uses of the 3d printer. With Cakewalk3d, users will be able to invent new flavors and experiences in the mouth thanks to an increasingly sophisticated technology.
Ease of use for all consumers
The great advantage of Cakewalk3d is that it is not necessary to purchase new software to run it on your 3D printer. Indeed, the tool already works with the slicers on the market, software used on almost all consumer 3D printers. In the same way, Cakewalk3d adapts to what already exists: it is not necessary to buy a 3D printer specifically dedicated to culinary printing. Indeed, the startup offers an extruder, which can be used directly on the 3d printers. To do so, it is necessary to 3d print support parts, whose CAD files are provided free of charge.
A Kickstarter in order to democratize culinary 3d printing
4 different sets are available depending on the makers and their needs:
- The core extruder is sold at 49€;
- The complete kit (extruder, motor parts) is sold at 89€ ;
- The ready-to-use kit (extruder, motor parts, 3d printed support parts) is sold at 129€;
- The whole kit, already installed on a 3d printer, is sold at 459€.
The Kickstarter campaign starts on October 29th, 2020 with deliveries in December 2020.
Marine Coré-Baillais, founder of Cakewalk3d: « 3D printing has multiple advantages and has become a weapon of resilience for our societies. Cakewalk3d shows a new way of consuming and creating. Moreover, a real community of cake designers may emerge, sharing and innovating even more in the culinary field, where amateurs and professionals can exchange. Finally, Cakewalk3d highlights a different way of consuming, where new flavours can be invented from a basic material. It’s revolutionary. »
