Tell us your idea and we will make it work in 3D/4D chocolate. Our R&D team will create a 3D concept drawing and deliver a real-size plastic 3D print.
PHASE 2 (8 weeks)
The test-tooling will be developed and handmade chocolate 3D samples will be provided.
PHASE 3 (8 weeks)
3D chocolate is Belgian dark, milk or white chocolate. 4D chocolate combines colour and flavour. Almost every colour and flavour is possible. We can make it even shiny.
When the figure weigths 0,4 gr, you get 2500 pieces in 1 kg.
A bigger figure of 0,7 gr will give 1400 pieces in 1kg.
MINIMUM ORDER QUANTITY

The 3D/4D figures can be maximum 15mm wide and max 5mm tall. The final design should be spherical (conical shape) from the top. The bottom is always flat.
WE DEVELOP YOUR HOLLOW FIGURINE
Our Hollow Figurines’ production process follows a standard procedure.
The process begins with creating the figure’s critical design, which will take about 6 weeks. Once we have your approval, we’ll order and control the test moulds. 2 weeks later, we’ll create samples and check them for any breakages. Once approved, we can continue with packaging, ordering moulds. These will take around 3-12 weeks to craft, depending on whether they are handcrafted or crafted with a machine. Finally, the long-awaited final production will begin!
