Easter has come and gone, but there’s always a reason to make some custom molded chocolates. Unfortunately, you’re usually limited to whatever shapes the local stores sells molds in. With the help of a 3D printer, however, you can make any mold you want.

With a Stratasys Objet260 Connex printer, the fine folks at Proto3000 created a custom chocolate egg mold for unique creations that would make you the envy of any chocolatier.

Making amazing chocolate designs should always be your first priority, but Stratasys notes that its Digital ABS material can be used “for many injection molding purposes.” Let’s just hope that aspiring chocolatiers don’t take their 3D printed injection molds past the creepy line.

    Please see my blog post: Can you make chocolate molds with a 3d printer? http://thechocolatemoldfactory.blogspot.com/2013/04/can-you-make-chocolate-molds-with-3d.html

    It outlines some of the problems with using 3d printed parts to make chocolates. I am hoping some 3d printing manufacturers can assist with solutions.
