This episode of D News is brought to you by Toyota.
Guys, this was 3D printed and I'm going to eat it.
Hey, guys, it's Trace here for D News.
I'm at CES 2014 and we're in the 3d printing area.
It's still the hot technology this year.
They have a whole section devoted just
to all the 3D printers at CES.
3D printers can use metal, they can use ceramics,
they can use plastics.
They can print bio cells.
They can even print food.
And that's what this little guy is right here.
Even though 3D printing is super big right now,
it's still kind of a super nerdy, nerdy nerd nerd level
of technology.
They've sold 68,000 3D printers, according to one poll.
And the industry is about $2.2 billion.
But most of them are way too complicated
for the average consumer.
And this year at CES, they're trying
to change that and bring them more into a lower price range
and easier to use.
So this is by 3-D Systems.
It's printed food, you guys.
And we're going to try it.
OK, guys, here we go.
It's good.
It kind of tastes like the marshmallow in Lucky Charms.
The MakerBot Replicator Z18 is the largest model available.
And it was announced here at CES.
It's 12 by 12 by 18 inches.
That is huge.
And you can do all sorts of cool stuff with it.
And we talked to Bre Pettis, CEO of MakerBot,
a little bit about it.
What's the best part about it, other than it's giant, right?
Is that it?
So the MakerBot Replicator Z18 is our biggest 3D printer.
We launched a small, medium and large one.
And this is the big one.
And there's a couple things that are special about this.
It's got the MakerBot Replicator Smart Extruder.
This sends you a message when you need to add more filament.
And it'll send it to your phone.
It'll say, hey your model's done.
Come pick it up and get the next one started.
It's got a camera in it, so you can take pictures of things
that you make.
You can monitor your progress and broadcast out
your latest creation on social networks.
The MakerBot Replicator Z18 has a heated
build chamber, which actually keeps the models dimensionally
stable, as it's being made.
Inside the 3D printer is the MakerBot Replicator 3D printing
platform, the electronics and software.
All three 3D printers have very, very powerful electronics
and software behind them.
And this one's no different.
The MakerBot Replicator Z18 is for the person
who doesn't want any limits.
They want to think big.
They want to go-- they don't want any limitations.
And the third in our lineup of 3D printers at CES
is the DaVinci 1.0.
It's made by XYZ Printing, whose parent company was a 2D
printer.
So they're able to make this guy for $499.
Yeah, $499.
It's super cheap.
But it's made by a 2D printer that now makes 3D printers.
They just added that extra D. And it
has proprietary print cartridges.
So that's pretty much it for 3D printing here at CES 2014.
We've got a big guy.
We've got a cheap guy.
And we've got a tasty guy.
Which one of those would you pick, if you could have one?
Let us know down below in the comments.
And thanks a lot for watching D News, everybody.

We'll see you next time.
