A Pleasant Morning, With Chocolate

With a bit more attention to detail, I now have about 125 Tux chocolate tchotchkes for my LUG presentation tomorrow evening:

Tux in PLA - Dark - Milk Chocolate

Tux in PLA – Dark – Milk Chocolate

Seeing as how the Tux chocolates were produced in a facility containing a big nut, some folks may prefer an (inedible, at least by humans, but correspondingly more permanent) Tux tchotchke in PLA. I plan to have the M2 running off more of them, so there should be enough to go around.

For what it’s worth, you can actually buy a 3D chocolate printer that seems rather overpriced for what’s basically a desktop CNC gantry mill with a heated syringe. The site seems dead, so maybe other folks came to that conclusion, too.

    There were some folks laser engraving chocolate at the science expo in DC a couple of weeks back.

      The smell must be like … oh, like growing up four miles from Hershey PA.
