Chocolate? Other Pastes?
Machines Available in the Lab
MakerBot Replicator 2 and 2X
Flashforge Creator Pro
Stratasys UPrints, and Uprint SE-Plus
Formlabs Form 2
How Do You Decide Which?
Material Choice
Primarily up to you! Do some Research!
ABS is very strong and water-proof
May need supports that have to be dissolved
Sodium Hydroxide
PLA degrades in water over time
May need supports that have to be torn-away
Nylon is very strong but difficult to print with
Supports are unknown for this material
Resin is still in its experimental stages
Polyurethane is very strong and FLEXIBLE
Two types of flex
Can be difficult to print with
Machines and Materials
MakerBots and FlashForges
ABS, PLA, Nylon, Polyurethane
Supports will be iffy and may not work
Support-1: Same material as printing with
Support-2: PVA Polyvinyl Acetate Elmer's Glue
Stratasys Machines Fred, Wilma, and SE
Supports are great but may need dissolved
Supports are great but the same resin material

Not All Printers are Created Equal
Heat Size Stickiness General Ability
Heat Each material uses different
temperature settings for the extruder, build-
table, and ambient
Each device has its own software
Sometimes this can get tricky

Some Tips
Dual Extrusion
Do not make this too difficult
Stratasys Machines take the least effort
Form-2 takes a medium amount of effort
MakerBot & Flahforges takes the most effort
