"Superior print quality especially with thin walled designs in PLA."
Marcus van Emmerik, lecturer, Fontys University of Applied Sciences.
"The Laboratory of Food Process Engineering aims at finding processes that are significantly more sustainable, producing products that combine excellent taste with better nutrition. We investigate 3D food printing as a novel promising technology for fabrication of foods. The Focus 3D Printer assists us in developing novel food concepts such as texturized plant-based products that have added value beyond existing products."
Maarten Schutyser, Associate Professor, Food Process Engineering - Wageningen University
"The Focus is a very approachable and easy to use 3D printer, which gives our students of Food Commerce and Technology the capability to research the potential of 3D food printing for diverse companies."
Malou Bakuwel, lecturer, Inholland University of Applied Sciences.
