3D Printing at 2015 CES: Food, Fashion, Filaments and More

3D Printing may have taken a back seat at this year’s CES to the Internet of Things, compelling TV news and a dizzying array of wearables, but the technology still had a strong presence of 50+ companies at the Sands Expo. The 2015 gathering saw more diverse and affordable printers, faster and more precise capabilities, a push into 3D-printed attire, 3D printing with paper and food, design applications for those who don’t want to learn CAD, and perhaps most interestingly, a new era of filaments with a shift from plastics to include wood, metal composite and carbon fiber options. CNET has posted a slideshow with details regarding a few dozen of the more interesting products – ranging in cost from a few hundred dollars to tens of thousands of dollars.
