We have featured a variety of different 3D printers here on Geeky Gadgets over the past few years but this week at CES 2014 3D Systems has announced the launch of their new ChefJet 3D printer range which is capable of printing edible 3D confectionary.
There are two ChefJet 3D printers in the range the ChefJet Pro for under $10,000 and the ChefJet 3D printer offering monochrome 3D confectionary printing for under $5,000.
The ChefJet Pro 3D printer is a full-colour, large format 3D printer offering a build size of 10 x 14 x 8 inches with printing materials available in a variety of recipes, including chocolate, vanilla, mint, sour apple, cherry and watermelon.
“Food is an incredible platform for creativity, experimentation, and celebration and we are thrilled to place these powerful 3D printers in bakers and chefs’ kitchens,” said Liz von Hasseln, Creative Director Food Products, 3DS. “We invite leading pastry chefs, restaurateurs and event planners to join us in bringing 3D printing into the kitchen.”
“Early feedback characterizes ChefJet as the must-have companion for the professional baker, cake master, and high-end event and restaurateur. Equipped with The Digital Cookbook, easy to use ChefJet software for the non-CAD user, the ChefJet printers enable stunning edible prints to be incorporated into any professional kitchen, effortlessly.”
The range of ChefJet 3D Printers will be launching in the second half of 2014
