One of the most critical things we can do to protect our PancakeBot is to ensure that no batter finds its way up into the air tube. For best performance we also need to strain batter to remove any lumps. This 3D printed part holds a 2.5" strainer and is designed to guide the dripping batter into the center of the bottle, not along the sides. This keeps the sides clear so tha we can spot any batter creeping up to the top of the bottle.
The PancakeBot is the world’s first food printer capable of printing pancakes by automatically dispensing batter directly onto a griddle in any shape of the user’s choosing. Pancake designs can be loaded onto the PancakeBot via USB or SD card. Representing an evolution in food-printing technology, PancakeBot lets kids and adults express their creativity through food while exploring technology.
