From Polymer to upcycling : an unexpected journey in 3D Food Printing

by Marine Coré Baillais, Digital Patisserie

As former Deputy CEO of Sculpteo, a well-known online 3D printing service, I came to Food printing with convictions and some bias. I’ll try to modestly explain how my background and my experience as a pastry chef has lead me to create the Digital Patisserie.



What drives you?
I am said to always see the glass half full rather than half empty. In my daily life, I devote myself to “how?” much more than to “why?”

Why should the delegate attend your presentation?
I’m an experienced 3D printing business executive but I’m a newbee in Food printing. This helps me to look at the field differently. How can we upgrade Food printing expectations to the same level as plastic printing is one of my main concerns.

What emerging technologies/trends do you see as having the greatest potential in the short and long run?
During Covid19 crisis, 3D printers were not seen as a gadget anymore but as thousands of assets of a decentralized mass-production plant. How can we reproduce the same thing for Food printing ?

What kind of impact do you expect them to have?
Spread the uses of Food printing is the main topic.

What are the barriers that might stand in the way?
In my experience, the best ennemy of 3D printing is … legal framework.

“Special quote”
The last months taught us that 3D printer can play a new role in the society and I am thrilled to confront my opinions with other professionals at the 3D Food Printing Conference.
