Wiiboox – Chinese manufacturer of 3D printers has announced the launch of a food 3D printing extruder that can be installed on most amateur FDM / FFF printers on the market, including the Creality Ender, Anycubic Mega and Voxelab Aquila series. An extruder called LuckyBot is designed to be a low-cost alternative to expensive food 3D printers and is priced at just $ 159. The appliance is compatible with chocolate, peanut butter, cream, cheese, jam, mashed potatoes, salad dressings and other soft foods.

Wiibox was founded in 2014 in Nanjing, China and currently has a very wide portfolio of 3D printers and 3D scanners. The company’s offer includes amateur and desktop 3D printers operating in FDM / FFF, LCD UV technologies and even industrial machines for 3D printing from metal powders in SLM technology. The company’s team hails from the University of Southern California in the USA and the University of Zhejiang in China. Wiibox’s customers include companies such as Procter & Gamble, Oracle and Jaguar.

To use the food extruder, all you need to do is replace the existing print head in the 3D printer with LuckyBot. The device has a light casing made of ABS, a stainless steel nozzle and PP tubes suitable for contact with food. According to Wiiboox, the extruder is FCC and CE certified.

LuckyBot is equipped with a temperature display with three buttons for its control and adjustment of the extruding screw position. The print head is able to maintain a temperature of up to 50°C with the automatic switch-off function. Thanks to the integrated temperature control algorithms, the heat in the head is always accurate to 0.5°C.
