CandyFab relaunched

Forget about machines that can replicate themselves, what we want is a machine capable of making an 8 inch wide hollow torus out of sugar. The CandyFab project has been around for a while, but with the release of the new machine, the CandyFab 6000 they are reinventing the project. Built from the ground up to be a candy constructing beast, the CandyFab 6000 might be a little smaller than the previous version, but it’s much better designed. You can get more details on the new wiki site.

    How the hell do evil mad scientist labs stay in business? They develop these awesome projects but for the life of me I can’t figure out their business model
    Not to mention they seem to have a big staff.

    maybe they get alot of advertisements or everything they sell is much much cheaper to make then what they sell it for

    maybe they just love what they do

    Love what they do doesn’t pay for rent or build materials.

    Don’t get me wrong… they’re awesome but they act like they’re a VC funded company.

    they should use a laser instead of a heater. this would allow for more precision.

    A laser and confectioners sugar, it has a much finer crystal size, that would be sweet.

    could also use some sort of plasma/HV sugar melting trick.. ? would also be a lot finer than a conventional heater, and relatively easy to do using two carbon electrodes.

    Forgive me if I’m wrong but will the “hollow torus” really be hollow or will it be full of granulated sugar?

    What do you mean this isn’t self-replicating.

    Its precisely as ‘self-replicating’ as the CrapRap, and it seems to count for some reason, so why not this one?
