Fabrication machine for liquid injection in jelly
Gelatin art, or jelly art is a traditional edible artwork to build 3-dimensional objects into gelatin. We demonstrated a 3D printing machine to apply this handcrafted gelatin art as digital fabrication technique. The fabrication machine, named Jelly’in, enable to print 3D object through injecting colored liquid into transparent jelly. The basic technique for printing is to drive a syringe needle forward and backward, and extrude liquid in the syringe for the injection in jelly.
