3D Printing Careers are popping up everywhere these days. Even in places you'd least expect it, like the candy making market. Hershey Chocolate recently disclosed they have a development partnership with 3D Systems. This team plans to not only develop new candies with this technology, but they intend to create a whole new class of printers.
Hershey is said to be embracing new technology in order to bring their candies into the future. There have also been rumors that they may extend these plans to foods other than candy.
Earlier in the month 3D Systems burst into the headlines when they unveiled a sugar printer that doesn't print in chocolate. A representative of the company says some of their recipes taste like chocolate chip cookies while others are more like candy.
The Hershey company explained that chocolate printing systems have their own unique complexities. For example, it takes great precision to keep the chocolate flowing while tempering it just right to give it a nice finish and crisp snap.
By partnering with Hershey, 3D Systems is achieving a goal of expanding the company into edible products.
This connection is good news for the 3D printing industry as it will open up a host of new jobs and a wider application of the technology. There are great hopes that the trend will continue with other companies not normally considered as using 3D printing.
