Thick Paste Extruder

Create 2D and 3D decorations, shapes and simple objects using thick pastes like ceramics, chocolate, or cookie dough.

Experiment with thick paste printing

Thick Paste Extruder enables 2D and 3D printing of dense masses which are extruded at high pressure through an exchangeable nozzle. It has a wide potential for experimental applications in art projects, material research, and custom cake decorations. Its simple construction also makes it safe for educational purposes and working with children.

Print with ceramics and chocolate

The toolhead can print using medium and dense masses like ceramics, Nutella, chocolate and sugar toppings, and cookie dough. Users are also free to experiment with other materials like silicone, porcelain, avocado paste, or cheese, to achieve results through trial and error. Objects printed with the Thick Paste Extruder are not certified as eatable.
