3D printing chocolate

The system that we use to depose the melted chocolate consists on heating the body of the syringe and the needle even more, through a special electric heater resistance. The needle is inserted into a perforated cylinder that let it pass through and hosts the coupling. The whole system is able to bring chocolate to the required temperature and keeps it stable. In this way, the chocolate close to the needle tip melts and can leak. For this to happen, you have to push the piston of the syringe by applying a regular and continuous pressure: here comes the activation of the feeder, which consists of an endless screw that pushes down the piston itself.
