Together they plan to develop a series of educational collaborations and to start a beta program for the ChefJet Pro 3D printer. Further CIA students will be provided internship programs at 3D System’s Sugar Lab, a 3D printing culinary innovation center located in Los Angeles. The company also plans to expand the availability of 3D printed confections and edibles via its Cubify online platform.
“Our collaboration with the CIA provides the culinary community with a unique opportunity to explore and experience the open-ended possibilities of fusing 3D food printing with traditional culinary arts,” said Avi Reichental, President and CEO, 3DS. “Together we plan to advance culinary arts through education, exploration, and experimentation by introducing 3D printing into the professional kitchen.”
Just recently 3D Systems announced its cooperation with the chocolate manufacturer Hershey for the 3D Chocolate Printing Exhibit at Hershey’s Chocolate World Attraction in Pennsylvania. The two food 3D printers ChefJet and ChefJet Pro, developed by 3D Systems, will be launched in the second half of 2015.
