The Guinness World Records' record for the most 3D printers operating simultaneously is 159 and was achieved by Airwolf 3D (USA) at their premises in Costa Mesa, California, USA, on 13 December 2014.
Guinness World Records also recognized the world record for the largest stereoscopic 3D projection; it measures 1580.94 m² (17,017.1 ft²) and is installed in the 5D Castle Theatre located in the Hengqin Ocean Kingdom, owned by Zhuhai Chimelong Investment and Development Co., Ltd (China), in Hengqin, Zhuhai, Guangdong, China. The screen was opened to the public on 30 May 2015.
The Bocusini is a device that allows a user to retrofit their existing 3D printer with the ability to 3D print with food-based filaments, the 3ders.org reports.
The Bocusini will also be sold as its own standalone 3d printer, however the open source kit will likely be more popular unless they can bring the price for the printer down to an absurdly affordable level.
The Bocusini printer can be used right out of the box. It is plug & play. This makes it the perfect tool for creative chefs or confectioners as well as for creative end users.
Just plug in the printer, drag & drop your favorite designs from the Bocusini web platform, or easily create your own food ideas on your smart device - without prior software installation or food printing knowledge.
With their marketplace www.Bocusini.com, the Bocusini team wants to guide users to jointly discover and develop this new universe of opportunities in food creation by 3D printing, the SocialBarrel reports.
