Besides the tablets, phablets and phones there’s a whole lot of gadgetry going on, but what can be expected from the 3D printing field specifically?

Visitors can see Afinia showcasing a line of different filaments as well as its H-series 3D printer – the $1,499 model, which was judged to offer the best overall 3D printer experience in the recent Make-magazine 3D printer test. There are also 3DP marketplaces and communities represented at the venue in the form of Kraftwürx and Sculpteo as well as one of last year’s shining stars – Makerbot Industries. And speaking of the big boys – 3D Systems and Stratasys will naturally also be represented at CES this year.

We will be covering all of the interesting 3DP related news from CES as they break, but meanwhile for more information on the event please visit the official CES site – follow the source link.
