3D food printing is a new and rapidly developing technology capable of creating entirely new food structures. One of the challenges in 3D food printing is the creation of a multi-material object from a powder bed. A key challenge is the deposition of a variety of powders in order to create a multi-material powder bed. Simulating powder flow of the deposition process is done with a 2D Discrete Element Method (DEM) model capable of simulating arbitrarily shaped powder particles.
