We've covered a variety of delicious-sounding experiments with 3D-printed chocolate over the past few years from both universities and big brands – but none have ever become commercially available. Unless you count 3D-printed sugarcraft (we don't).

So when we were told about a new service that will turn 3D scans into chocolate models like these versions of the Queen's head, we got excited again. However, Candy Mechanics isn't offering actually-3D-printed chocolate – but until that really does happen, this is the next best thing.

Candy Mechanics isn't a service yet – it's still a Kickstartup – and it's not the chocolate that's produced using a 3D printer, but the moulds. So the results have a level of detail you'd expect from moulded chocolate, not a 3D printer.
