Mexican Food Made By 3D Printing and 3D Scanning Services

3D Printing combines with Cuisine

What is the best day of the week to eat out?  If you said Tuesday, you are right. Tuesday is the best day of the week to eat out because Tuesday rhymes with taco. No it doesn’t, but who cares. All we want is our tacos, not an English lesson. Now lets shift gears. Lets talk about 3D printing services and 3D scanning services. 3D scanning and printing is taking the world by storm. Scanners are being pointed in every which way, scanning every surface known to man for every reason known to man.  Some of them are even buzzing around in the sky. 3D printers are also spitting out all kinds of stuff here and there. So now for the point I am trying to get to. What do you get when you put two good things together? You get awesomeness. More specifically, what do you get when you combine Mexican cuisine with 3D technology. Please pass the guacamole!!!

The BEst (IMO)

First of all, there should be little debate that Mexico, hands down has the best food in the world. At least that is how it is with me myself and I. Go to any small town America. You may not find an Italian restaurant, but you’d be hard pressed not to find some place that can whip you up an enchilada. So, if there is any nation that should be put on the task of finding ways to combine 3D scanning services and 3D printing services with food, it should be Mexico. And guess what? They are on it!

Coming soon

Mexican scientists are getting down to business by creating a 3D printer that can produce food. I like the sound of that. They are using a manufacturing process that makes additives to produce healthy food products. This was all announced by the National Council on Science and Technology. Zaira Yunyuen, who does research at Caitej Technology Research Center, said that this 3D printed food will include probiotics that will be good for one’s intestines. When can we buy this thing?!

Not a taco printer

Now before you get all excited, thinking that you can just stick your tacos al carbon in the scanner, and then start printing out copies like newspaper press. Sorry. It won’t be a taco replicator like on Star Trek. In fact, currently the only thing that the 3D printer can produce is creamy foods. Using an Interlatin Colibri 3D cartridge, the printer puts out layers of edible material instead of ink. The printer puts out 3D edible food by printing layer upon layer. So I think you and I know where we are going with this whole thing. This, my friend, is something that every household needs. You guessed it.  It is a guacamole machine! 

Well, I guess by now you have seen the great potential that 3D scanning services and 3D printing services has. And now I guess you know what you are going to buy your relatives for Christmas as soon as something like this becomes a household item sold at Walmart on Black Friday. Until then, we’ll keep going out for taco Tuesday.
