Matrice, matrix artistic design for gourmet chocolate confectionary and pastrymaking.

Dessert3Design concept is born – a fusion between new technologies and most traditional methodologies that makes possible a new moud making generation.
What we do

Creativity · Excellence · Artistic vision · Perfection · Emotion

talent and excellence

With Matrice the creative limits in pastrymaking disappear; talent and excellence become important.

Custom 3D designs

We start from a need, an idea or a sketch. The entrusted design, gradually, takes the desired composition and consistency to become a digital art piece ready to print in 3D.

The advantages of digital sculpture are numerous; the agility achieving results and careful attention to detail stand out.

Moldes con vida propia

In Matrice we have the hands of the sculptor who knows the touch and the gratitude of the clay, thus we manage to transmit in each digital piece the feeling and the emotion typical of the traditional sculpture.

How we do it

Trend. Tradition. Innovation. Exploration. Solution.

Work methodology

In Matrice we surprise you with extravagantly shaped matrices and molds turned into puzzles, finding the most suitable material for its execution in pastrymaking, transforming it into a piece of creativity and inspiring flavours.
  • We put a solution to matrices with help of the new technology that is already part of our lives and business: 3D print; we materialise each digital sculpture into a tangible piece

  • Once printed, the expert and perfectionist hands of the artesian give it the characteristic value of a quality piece

  • In Matrice we are looking for that magic that pushes us to research new techniques, study state-of-the-art composition and innovating in processes, always keeping an eye on the delicacy of a handmade piece.

Frequent questions

Do you have any question? we answer it.

Once the piece is ready, are the usual 3D printer marks visible?

Our finishes can surprise you. Matrice is very committed to providing the highest quality in each piece, and we love to give it a handmade finish, making it difficult to distinguish whether it has been printed or sculpted.

What sizes can be printed in 3D?

Matrice works with pieces ranging between 2cm and 2m.

How long does it take to finish an order?

Thanks to our cooperation with new technologies and usage of digital sculpting, our response to demand is very fast. On average, project take 15 days to get delivered, though it is always conditioned by the difficulty and demands of the project.

Can I do without molds and get only the matrix?

Matrice performs three differentiated services:
– creative design based on a concept
– the execution of digital sculpture and subsequent 3D printing
– replica food molds
All projects are prepared and budgeted according to the client’s needs.

Is a matrix an expensive item?

The answer to this question is very ambiguous, because it depends on the project. 3D printing itself is not very expensive, the price will be determined by the size of the project, the hours of design and execution.

In case of a three-dimensional piece, do the pieces fit together?

Effectively. Matrice works the whole piece in the design phase, and it is only when the impression is executed that the piece is divided into as many parts as necessary so that the relevant molds can be made without any impediments when removing the edible parts and fit together in detail.

Is there a problem if I have got a gastronomic concept but I don't know what shape I should give it?

We love challenges and we have plenty of imagination. Matrice is very present throughout the artistic development, until the customer is completely satisfied with the result and can perfectly complement his idea and brand.

What materials are the moulds made of?

It depends on the needs of each project. The moulds, in order to get the most suitable results for its purpose, are made of food silicone or PET plastic.
