byFlow Focus review

The byFlow Focus is a multi-material 3D printer made by byFlow, a manufacturer from the Netherlands. The Focus allows both for edible 3D printing – with all kinds of paste-type ingredients – and for plastic 3D printing. This is possible thanks to this 3D printer’s swappable printheads.

However, this food 3D printer mostly targets professionals in the bakery industry. The Focus works with refillable cartridges containing any sort of paste-type food to create customized meals. Users also have access to downloadable recipes on the manufacturer’s website, and have the possibility to view them on the 3D printer’s touchscreen.

Different nozzle sizes are available, ranging from 0.3 mm to 1.60 mm.

Focus main features

  • Heated print bed: the Focus’ heated glass build plate goes up to 80°C.
  • Downloadable recipes: byFlow provides various recipes for the Focus on their website. It is possible to choose and send a recipe directly to the 3D printer by Wi-Fi.
  • Portable: the Focus is foldable and, therefore, is easy to transport.
  • Easy-to-use: this 3D printer boasts a simple and intuitive interface.
