3D  Printing
3D printing is a process whereby a physical three-dimensional object of almost any shape can be created from a digital model by layering a material on top of itself in different shapes to build up the desired shape.

3D Printing Takes on the Final Frontier: Food

3D Printing Takes on the Final Frontier: Food | 3D  Printing | Scoop.it

“Right now, astronauts on the space station are eating the same seven days of food on rotations of two or three weeks,” said Michelle Terfansky, an astronautical engineer, who is writing her master’s thesis on how to 3D print appetizing dishes in microgravity at the University of Southern California. “It gets the job done, but it’s not exactly home cooking.”

 

 Jeffrey Lipton, head of the Fab@Home project, and his team at Cornell University have developed edible gel-like substances called “hydrocolloids” that can be printed in layers and mixed with an array of different flavours and textures. The 3D food printer works by mimicking the taste of different food. This technology can be used to mix in all the nutrients, vitamins, amino acids, and minerals essential for a healthy diet and can even be tailored to individual dietary requirements. The method still has some restrictions and items like chocolate and cheese are easier to produce than more complex items such as vegetables, fruits or meat.

It may not be a home-cooked meal, but it's packed with the essential nutrients, and this is only the beginning. If we are printing things we can eat, just imagine what else is possible. Seemingly, the sky is the limit.

This article written for investment blog Seeking Alpha was created by an investor with no ties to the 3D printing industry. The claims are his opinion, and will need to be corroborated by other more reliable sources. The article speaks of possible developments in the manufacturing industry through 3D printing, and the author raises some good arguments. Advancement into the manufacturing industry will be a significant step for 3D printing. I will include this in my essay, but first I need to find more evidence to back this up.

Ryan Murphy's curator insight, March 21, 2013 9:36 PM

3D printing is one of the newest frontiers for Engineering and Information Technologies in the future.  It is a relatively old technology, having existed for 30 years already, however recently, with the decrease in hardware size and needs 3D printing has caught many peoples eyes.

 

I think that in the current growth market of Information Technology, 3D Printing could be one of the next big growth markets, especially when you consider its ability to create extremely small and technically advanced pieces of machinery, like say, Computer Components?
