Anyone know where/how i can get one? and would it be compatable with my kossel 2020 mini?

Im mostly interested in the chocloate and sugar but interested in more options if available?

I spoke to a chocolatier recently about extruding chocolate on my printer. You need to temper the chocolate to get it to come out well. This means melting it at one temperature (55C-58C for bittersweet/dark, or 45C- 50C for milk or white), then cooling it to a precise lower temperature (31C-32C bittersweet/dark, 29C-30C for milk) while stirring it. Maintain it at that temperature for extrusion. So I think you either need a reservoir of tempered chocolate on the effector (which will be heavy), or a heated and temperature-controlled Bowden tube to feed the chocolate through.

the Bowden method is clearly ideal, but is there anything premade out there?

I really like how the sugar builds:

but cant find anywhere to buy it?

any other cool mods out there I can get?
