The filament used for 3D printing is useful, but not terribly interesting. Others have taken to printing using other substances, some for notable purposes, others more or less for novelty. The 3D pancake printer is one such machine, but in recent times MIT students have trumped it. MIT students Kyle Hounsell, Kristine Bunker, and David Donghyun Kim all worked together to make what might be the best 3D printer ever (after the one that might cure blindness , that is): a 3D ice cream printer. The machine does exactly what its title suggests. The way the printer works is simple, at least in description.
