The 3D printer should allow to print the modified food by giving them different shapes texture. Each printer cartridge will contain a different food, vegetables, meat, carbohydrates, in liquid form.

With the addition of a binder (under development), the printer agent will deposit the material in layers to replenish food in a given shape through a 48 printhead nozzles. The final result will allow seniors to have meals with appetizing texture.
