3D Systems announces midrange 3D printers that print full-color plastic, ceramic and … sugar



Priced $5,000 to $10,000, the four new printers will offer relatively affordable options for artisans, bakers, businesses and the advanced hobbyist.


Following up on its release of two new desktop 3D printers, 3D Systems unveiled four more printers today that target consumers with advanced printing skills and artisans with specific creative needs. The printers create objects in white ceramic, full-color plastic, white sugar and full-color sugar. All of the printers are expected to ship in the second half of 2014.


ChefJet



Since buying LA-based confectionary 3D printing startup The Sugar Lab last year, 3D Systems has been showing off the pretty sugar cubes and other sweets the firm’s technology was capable of creating. Now, 3D Systems has created two dedicated printers aimed at hobbyists, bakers and general artisans interested in adding some delicate art to their sugar creations.

At around $5,000, the ChefJet is the cheaper of the two options and capable of printing objects that measure up to 8 x 8 x 6 inches in white. It’s able to create flavors like chocolate, vanilla, mint, sour apple, cherry and watermelon.

The ChefJet Pro prints in the same flavors for $10,000, but adds full-color printing capabilities and a build size of 10 x 14 x 8 inches.


CubeJet



While printing in sugar may sound novel, the real excitement should surround the CubeJet full-color printer. At less than $5,000, it’s the most affordable (unless the botObjects ProDesk3D does indeed ship this month) full-color 3D printer ever by a wide margin.

It’s said to print in white, pastel and bold colors. If the technology inside is anything like 3D Systems’ professional ProJet color line, it will put out some very decent prints.

Color printing is still a very limited and relatively new area of 3D printing. Seeing it jump into a consumer-accessible printer, albeit an expensive one, is a very promising development.


CeraJet



The $10,000 CeraJet prints in white ceramic that can then be glazed and fired to add color. Currently, some of the most useful objects that you can make with a 3D printer are ceramic, as it doesn’t break down when exposed to elements like food or water, unlike the plastics used in most 3D printers. The relatively inexpensive $10,000 price tag will be a nice option for artisans.

  1. Botobjects - a global scam

    I am from Belarus. I sent to the address of "Botobjects Ltd" 4489, 59 US dollars. Wanted to buy a 3D-printer ProDesk3D. Was a very sad story. Here it is:

    Fact: 3DSystems - office, sheltered under its roof organized criminal group ("Botobjects Ltd") and gave him a second life. Legally: 3DSystems - the successor of a business entity ("Botobjects Ltd"). In fact: 3DSystems - the successor Crime (Crime implemented incorporation).

    Fact: 3DSystems aware of criminal activity "Botobjects Ltd". 3DSystems ignores all the rights and claims of creditors, including the right to know the fate of their property. 3DSystems - entities involved in the crimes after they occurred.

    Fact: "Botobjects Ltd" - into the structure of criminal disguised as a business entity. "Botobjects Ltd" - cowboy office (office "Barnyard" with registered capital of 211 Euro). "Botobjects Ltd" - an instrument of a crime by an organized criminal group operating in a preliminary conspiracy.

    Fact: "Botobjects Ltd" extort property (through breach of trust), then divides the property into the pockets of the founders. "Botobjects Ltd" has carried out and continues to carry out crimes worldwide. This - continuing offense. His victims - tens of citizens of different countries. "Botobjects Ltd" - the criminal structure of the world scale.

    TOTAL: 3DSystems - structure unfair, malicious, involvement in a crime (concealment of crimes and criminals, violation of the rights of creditors, promoting continuous crime, lack of respect for the consumer). Conclusion: 3DSystems has no right to reputation. His reputation is worthy of cesspools. So be it.

    Appeal victims of crime "Botobjects Ltd" and 3DSystems: citizens, these two go around doing the cowboy office! Do not trust your money to these structures! Not worthy of these malicious structure of respect! The dustbin of history it!

    Notification: Crime bunching "Botobjects Ltd" (hereinafter - Crime), disguised as a business entity ("Botobjects Ltd"), has made and continues to commit against the citizens of the world triple crime:

    1. Fact: Crime, criminal way (through breach of trust), to extort property from unsuspecting citizens. This is - fraud.
    2. Fact: Crime assigns the property of citizens, obtained by criminal means. This is - robbery (stealing brazenly open).
    3. Fact: Criminals cashing in on the property of the citizens. This - illicit enrichment (use of property obtained by criminal means).
