3D printing cakes and chocolates

So here is where my daily job intrudes into my Chowhound habit. 3D printers are all the rage in manufacutring, there are even ongoing projects on creating human body parts with 3D printers. But this is really pretty cool and opening up the possibilities for bakers and chocolates makers.
It sounds like only certain materials can be used with the printer. I would be much more excited if I could use real chocolate and keep it in temper rather than their chocolate flavored printing medium. Maybe someday.
I have thought that the 3D printer could be a good way to make custom chocolate molds. Any idea if the plastic used is food safe?
