High-tech Easter treats—3-D-printed in Belgium

Belgium’s new La Maim Factory makes high-tech holiday treats using 3-D printing.

The shop can produce anything from beer bottles to custom logos to freeform sculptures, all manufactured 0.2 millimeters at a time.

Founder Gaetan Richard took an idea developed in Liège University’s Smart Gastronomy Lab and started this company four months ago.

Along with Easter-themed offerings he produces promotional pieces for a local brewery and a luxury hotel.

Each chocolate beer bottle takes nearly three hours to produce.

Stretched out, the chocolate in one of them would form a line a sixteenth of an inch wide and 80 feet long.

And the name? “Miam” means yum in French—an apt choice to be sure.
