CandyFab 6000 prints in 3D with sugar

The folks at Evil Mad Scientist have gone back to printing with sugar with their CandyFab 6000. This version of the 3D printer that makes solid objects out of sugar now fits on a desktop. It's also designed so that you can easily get all the parts to build it from scratch without having to search for old HP pen plotters.

I wish they'd pose with it more. I've been following the project since it was introduced on EMSL, but they never show them with someone next to them, or any way to get a real sense of scale.

Ah, thank you. It looked cabinet-sized in most of the pictures. Curse you people and your able-to-go-to-Maker-Faire-ness!
