Peter Walters and CFPR's KTP partner Renishaw Plc., were invited to participate in the event 'How will stuff be made in the future?', held at the Science Museum. The presentation included a demonstration of research into Edible 3D Printing, by printing sugar icing using a RapMan 3D printer. The research project 'Edible 3D Printing', sought to explore and test the technical capabilities of food-based materials (eg: sugars, starch powders, alcohol and chocolate) within 3D printing and rapid prototyping technologies. The team were also posing the question 'How will 3D printing change the way we make and buy things?' to children and adults at the Museums' event.
