3D printing can be a great alternative to injection and machined molds. It not only cuts manufacturing time, but is a most cost effective alternative. Check out the video below how CAPINC staff 3D printed some molds and made tasty Easter-themed treats.
Update April 15, 2014:
John Vegher of Moddler informed us a mistake in the video:
Objet VeroClear (like most 3d printing materials) is certainly NOT food safe. The proper way to make a mold would have been to print a positive of the bunny and then to make a mold with a food-safe silicone.
I hope no one ate those chocolate bunnies!
