3D Systems showcases two ChefJet 3D printer models at 2014 CES

One of the hottest items at the 20144 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas was 3D printer technology; and among the most intriguing printers showcased at the event were ChefJet and ChefJet Pro from US-based 3D printing firm, 3D Systems (3DS).

The $5,000-priced ChefJet and the $10,000-priced ChefJet Pro 3D printers stood out from among a horde of competing machines displayed at the CES by more than 30 firms from the 3D printing arena. Most of the 3D printers aimed at the CES event were aimed at the growing home and small business markets.

The ChefJet 3D printer models unveiled by 3DS marked the first of the several "food printers" which are likely to make way into the consumers' kitchens in the future. While the other regular 3D printers use resins or plastics for producing 3D items, the ChefJet printers print food.

Both the ChefJet models unveiled at the CES support candy designs created using computers. The two machines take in a mixture of dye, sugar and water to churn out food items like sugar candies. The printers can also dish out cake toppings and garnishes.

Revealing that the `raw material' which the ChefJet printers will use would be the "ink" sold by 3DS, a spokesperson of the company said: "ChefJet printable materials come in a variety of recipes, including mint, sour apple and watermelon. ChefJet is expected to be available in the second half of 2014."
