3D Systems has brought the second industrial revolution to the kitchen with the ChefJet series of 3D printers.
The first two printers in the series are a monochrome, countertop ChefJet and a full-color, larger format ChefJet Pro 3D.
Equipped with "The Digital Cookbook," the easy to use ChefJet software for the non-CAD user, ChefJet printers create edible prints which can be effortlessly incorporated into any professional kitchen.
"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," 3D Systems' Creative Director of Food Products Liz von Hasseln said. "We invite leading pastry chefs, restaurateurs and event planners to join us in bringing 3D printing into the kitchen."
The ChefJet 3D printer is a monochrome, countertop sized printer with a build volume of 8" X 8" X 6", making it ideal for single color confections and cake toppers. Printable materials come in a variety of flavors, including chocolate, vanilla, mint, sour apple, cherry and watermelon.
The ChefJet Pro 3D printer is a full-color, large format printer with a build area of 10" X 14" X 8". ChefJet Pro printable materials also come in a variety of flavors, including chocolate, vanilla, mint, sour apple, cherry and watermelon, all of which can be printed in full-color.
The ChefJet is available for under $5,000 while the ChefJet Pro is under $10,000. Both printers will be available in the second half of 2014.
