YES! thats right! SLM, NOT SLS or SLA; SLM

Selective
Laser
Melting

it would be exactly like SLS, but instead of metal powders being sintered together, it would be chocolate powder melting and sticking together. SLS quality printed Chocolates, you know that if you print the right thing and sell it at the right place people would pay an arm and a leg for it.

needless to say, i am about 95% kidding here. I think it would be neat but...


If you need some help, or don't understand what I just said, feel free to send me a PM anytime

... was done -- but handling, "shelf-lifetime" and contamination of the powder is an issue eye rolling smiley

Better try with shugar and a small CO2-laser -- this was/is done too, with much less hassle ...
