World's Tastiest Bridge.

We are proud of our Aerial Lift Bridge here in Duluth so we gave it a re-design…. out of chocolate. Fannie Rose Candy Shop in Duluth MN (just below the Design Eye Q offices) commissioned a lift bridge candy bar silicone mold.


No match for 30’ waves of Lake Superior

But the tastiest bridge ever made


Duluth MN’s Aerial Lift Bridge

Our cities most recognizable landmark. When our local candy shop needed something special, DEQ was able to help out!

A simplified graphic was created in Adobe Illustrator and saved as a svg. Solidworks extrudes the SVG into a thickened model and draft angles and fillets are added. Our Makerbot Z18 3d prints the part. Smoothon food safe silicone is vacuum degassed and poured over the print in a mold, and allowed to cure at an elevated temperature overnight. Presto! You have a mold ready to make delicious chocolate bars.
