If This is Possible, I’ll Eat My Shoe!
Amsterdam-based 3D artist, Tristan Bethe has made the impossible: an edible sneaker. Bethe scanned his shoe and had it 3D-printed. He next painted food-safe silicone rubber onto the 3D print of the sneaker. Once dry, the silicone came of the print easily and he just added a few supportive threads to help it keep its shape.
Bethe reports that the thin-walled print also made for a “perfect cookie/meat cutter”. In addition to the bread shoe for the shoeburger, he also made a chocolate shoe, where you can see the detail even better. That’s so cool! See also: The World’s First Chocolate 3D Printer.
