On Wednesday, December 18, Brill, Inc., a CSM Bakery Solutions company, revealed its Brill 3D Culinary Studio. The new and innovative full-color, professional-grade culinary 3D printing system is the result of a multi-year collaboration with 3D-printing pioneer 3D Systems.

This new technology gives chefs the power to produce custom, cutting-edge culinary creations. The Brill 3D Culinary Studio will allow them to produce elaborate and personalized bespoke objects to excite their customers.

“Our team at Brill has partnered with 3D Systems to develop a transformative tool for the culinary industry,” says David Nies, Vice President of Business Development for Brill, Inc. “We are thrilled to provide chefs with this technology, which allows them to create anything they can imagine with the touch of a button.  And while the objects produced by the 3D Culinary Printer are truly remarkable; this amazing new technology allows us to offer a new customer solution that is low cost and easy to use.”

Through various 2019 test programs, chefs at casinos and restaurants experienced the capabilities of the Brill 3D Culinary Studio firsthand and provided real-time feedback to ensure that every aspect of the technology passed the exacting standards of commercial kitchens.

The integrated solution includes the Brill 3D Culinary Printer and software powered by 3D Systems technology, the Brill 3D Culinary Powder and Brill 3D Culinary Binder, all used in tandem to produce an array of full-color, life-like, and edible 3D figures and embellishments. Chefs can use their own design or select from a library of hundreds of 3D designs to mass-print smaller pieces such as cake decorations, confections, and garnishes or print larger, statement pieces.

“For more than 30 years, 3D Systems’ technologies have been a catalyst for transforming manufacturing – enabling creation of products not possible with traditional methods,” says Menno Ellis, senior vice president and general manager, plastics, 3D Systems. “It’s exciting to see how our industry-leading technologies can be applied to the culinary arts, enabling chefs to take their craft to unprecedented levels to create in ways never before possible, or economically viable. The combination of experience and expertise of the Brill and 3D Systems’ teams alongside unique 3D printing materials and technologies is enabling a break-through solution.”

The Brill team will be showcasing the technology throughout the U.S. next year, with anticipated installations of the first 3D Culinary Studios in the summer of 2020.
