Chefjet pro 3d culinary printer foods 06

3D systems introduced a 3D food printer prototype in Las Vegas last month, Via Cnet

The 3D printer maker… introduced the ChefJet series, a new type of 3D printer entirely. They don’t build plastic 3D objects — instead, they make things you can eat. It’s like a Star Trek replicator, if Star Fleet lived entirely off candy.

The first two printers in this series are the ChefJet and the ChefJet Pro. The main difference between the two is the latter can print color while the former is monochrome. On top of that the ChefJet Pro has a larger build platform — 10 inches by 14 inches by 8 inches (25.4 by 35.6 by 20.3 cm), compared with 8 inches by 8 inches by 6 inches (20.3 by 20.3 by 15.2 cm) of the other.

3D Systems says the ChefJet series’ printable materials come in a variety of recipes, including chocolate, vanilla, mint, sour apple, cherry and watermelon. When used with the ChefJet Pro, all of them can be printed in full color.
