3D Printing Overview

To assist in creating digital, 3D models that will become your edible 3D parts, Brill provides full part-design assistance; contact your service provider for more information. 3D Sprint software will then prepare these digital, 3D models to be sent to the printer as build files. Brill 3D Culinary Powder will serve as the foundation of your builds, while Brill 3D Culinary Binders will add color and adhesion to part layers. Binders come in Red, Yellow, Blue, and Clear.

The Brill 3D Culinary Printer works by relying on similar principles to what many other traditional baking processes do. The chef loads wet (binder) and dry (powder) ingredients into the Brill 3D Culinary Printer; and the printer mixes these ingredients together with automated precision, layer-by-layer, to construct incredible, full-color 3D designs without applying heat. After a drying period completes, the finished parts may be removed from the printer and post-processed in the Brill 3D Culinary Finishing Station to remove any remaining powder. There are other optional, advanced post-processing techniques that you can use to enhance part strength and vibrancy. These techniques are outlined in the Brill 3D Culinary Studio Best Practices. Below is a visual overview of the printing process:

3D Sprint™, the part-preparation PC software that comes with the Culinary Studio, is used to slice your digital 3D model. These slices are saved as a file that you will send to your printer's print queue over your network connection.   The Brill® 3D Culinary Printer takes your sliced build file from 3D Sprint and uses its proprietary methods and ingredients to print your 3D model, slice-by-slice.   Once the model has finished printing and drying, you will remove the part from the printer and use the Brill® 3D Culinary Finishing Station to rid your parts of excess build powder. Your parts are now ready for eating!
