So this recent post on 3DShare got me thinking - does anyone really know about the food safety of 3D printing filament? It's pretty clear that resin for SLA/DLP printer is not safe for contact with food.
Can’t guarantee food safety but I figure neither the swizzle stick or the toothpick will be in anything long enough to cause any harm. Enjoy and Happy New Year!
At least the author raises the possible issue and admits to not knowing. PLA is used in all kinds of food containers. I guess my biggest question is whether the standard PLA spools include additives that can each into food & drink. Number one culprit(s) being the dyes. (Or perhaps only carbon black can be used safely, like the shade balls). Anyone have any good resources for finding this out? Seems pretty well overdue, given the prevalence of FDM printers.
