3D printed sugar on display at CES

Shortly after 3D Systems broke the news about their new sugar, chocolate, ceramic, and full-color powder printers MAKE visited their booth at CES 2014 to get the full story behind these incredible machines.

I discussed 3DS’ newest FFF printers, the Cube 3 and CubePro with Keith Ozar, 3D Systems’ Director of Consumer Products. NOTE: The prints shown in the video that overlay Keith’s commentary on the Cube 3 and Cube Pro were not necessarily printed on those machines. They were printed on a variety of other printers on display at 3D System’s CES booth, including the full-color CubeJet.

Next, I had the pleasure of meeting Sugar Lab founders Liz and Kyle von Hasseln.  The ChefJet monochrome and ChefJet Pro multicolor sugar printers were on display along with huge intricate sugar prints, as well as samples for lucky CES goers. The sour apple, cherry and watermelon 3D printed sugar tastes a bit like cotton candy and was delicious.

She runs the digital fabrication hardware testing for Make:. If you’re a vendor who would like to submit a tool for review (3D printer, CNC, laser cutter, fab software etc.), contact her directly at: anna [@] makermedia [dot] com.

She’s the section editor for Make: Skill Builder. Make: celebrates your right to tweak, hack, and bend any technology to your will. But — In order to really tweak and bend something, you need to understand it! If you’d like to write a tightly focused piece on a core maker skill in science / engineering / craft / art / architecture / robotics / fabrication etc. (whatever) that you’d like to teach to other makers — and have Make: work with you to illustrate for magazine publication — let her know!

She’s very interested in your ideas for practical digital fabrication focused books — anything that turns codes into things — hardware and software.

She’s also the Dean of the global Fab Academy program, the co-author of Getting Started with MakerBot, compiled the Make: 3D Printing book and ran the 2015 and 2014 3D Printer Shootout Weekend testing events.

She likes things that are computer-controlled, parametric, and open source — preferably all three.
