Thanks for the explanation man the 3d printer we have in my university works like a cnc machine. So I was wondering what would happen. Yeah Im sure unless its super secret way of producing food they will release some videos.

Haha, I can just imagine it being some top-secret method! The next video tour; "Yeah, here we have the kitchen, and behind this cabinet is CENSORED, which CENSORED our food for us."

By the way, I didn't know they had 3D printers like that! The only ones I knew about that people could get were the kind I already described and another that just glues powder together.

Just asked my roommate about it(he works at the fablab) Its system is apparently called fused deposition modeling and the one we have isnt any brand a student made a cnc machine for his thesis project and it was hacked into a 3d printer because the school could not buy a one. Still cool but super low resolution.
