Thank you for your purchase and welcome to the Brill 3D Culinary Studio! You are among the first culinary professionals to experience the power of fast, efficient, full-color, 3D food printing. The Brill 3D Culinary Studio will support you every step of the way as you design and prepare 3D files, purchase 3D consumable ingredients, and 3D-print a vast range of edible 3D applications, such as cake toppers, centerpieces, dessert garnishes, savory dish components, candies, sugar cubes, and cocktail garnishes/sweeteners. The 3D Culinary Studio is comprised of two components: the Brill 3D Culinary Printer and the Brill 3D Culinary Finishing Station. This guide focuses on the printer itself, while the finishing station is featured in the Brill 3D Culinary Finishing Station User Guide and the Post-Processing Guide.

To assist in creating digital, 3D models that will become your edible 3D parts, Brill provides full part-design assistance; contact Brill for more information. 3D Sprint for Brill Culinary 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 as many other traditional baking processes. The chef loads wet and dry ingredients (Brill 3D Culinary Binders and Powder, respectively) 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 are 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.

Printed parts on the machine are created under the control of the system operators. Operators should be trained on basic operation, maintenance, and safety requirements before running the system and handling its ingredients.

This manual provides users with an understanding of features, system requirements, and operating procedures needed to create edible parts using the printer.
