Each mold required about 30 minutes for a 3D printing. With regards to printed parts around food, it is important to consider food-safe filaments and coat the parts using a food-safe sealant.

Furthermore, the molds should never be exposed to heat; one can never therefore put them in the oven. They can only be used to draw a shape into the cool dough.

 

By reading these lines, you may probably recall the challenges Dinara encountered in the realization of her 3D printed molds.

Technically speaking, Adam used a consumer FDM 3D printer to 3D print his molds. According to him, the plastic material the molds are made from could be put in contact with food.

He designed motifs from Brussels on the molds such as a wind turbine, the atomium or a waffle.Makers can download the files on Thingiverse (Belgian Speculoos Cookie Molds) to make their own 3D printed molds.

Last, Adam even shared a  speculoos recipe for the dough. Thoughtful, right?
