    It might be worth mentioning that this style of 'printer', where there's an arm that moves a pen used to be called a 'plotter', and 'icing plotter' finds a homemade one made out of Lego : boingboing.net/2018/01/04/cloggy-nozzles.html

    And you might be able to apply the spots with a template, then outline and flood fill the rest to speed things up, even without anything automated

The term I wanted to find is: Cookie Icing Machine domestic

According to Joe's comment I managed to find information I didn't know how to look for ...


  • If I were building it, I'd probably go with a large syringe and some sort of linear actuator, so it was more consistent in how much it deposited per motor rotation.
