What is the Fab@Home, and What makes it Different?

Well here’s one thing that makes it different: The Fab@Home prints food. Seriously. We’ve printed corn, turkey paste, cookies, chocolate, cheese, and more! I presently develop electronics for both the MakerBot and Fab@Home 3D printers. While the MakerBot focuses on bringing the most precise plastic extrusion possible to the public, the Fab@Home focuses on using additive manufacturing as a teaching tool and to print unique new materials. In addition to food, the Fab@Home has printed ice, metal, and evenreplacement bone.
