Another year and another CES is in the books with an incredible range of consumer products and technology. In the 3D Printing Industry, there was a lot of talk about 3D printed Violins, Accessible Metal 3D Printing, and more.
Here is a list of top stories from Las Vegas:

The 3Dvarius was on display at CES and it took 24 hours to print 30,000 layers in one piece. It's based on a real Stradivarius Violin and it's creators want it to reach a larger audience.

Sculpteo gained the interest of CES's attendees with their 3D printed bicycle project, which was made through 3D printing, Laser Cutting, and metal 3D printing. Journalists and guests were able to ride the 3D printed stationary bike before its 1000km trip.

Sometimes supports are the worst part of 3D printing since they are really hard to remove. Thankfully Airwolf3D introduced Hydrofill, support material that is removed with a bit of water.

At CES Fuel3D unveiled a high-resolution desktop scanner and their fast 360-degree 3D scanner. The 360-degree scanner is easy to move around and transport, making the 3D scanning process quicker. While the desktop scanner can capture different human features, shapes, and colors.

3D metal printing used to require an expensive printer and materials, but that seems to be changing with the Metal X Printer. At CES Markforged presented a desktop 3D metal printer that could very well change 3D printing as we know it.

Nano Dimension wowed attendees with the Dragonfly 2020 3D printer, which allows for electronic 3D printing on different surfaces. They showed off circuits printed on glass, cans, PET, aluminum and other different types of materials.

At this year's CES Monoprice added more 3d printers to their growing family of printers. The Select Mini has been updated, they presented a $150 Delta Printer, and an inexpensive SLA printer. In short, Monoprice showed that they are serious about inexpensive 3D printing.

ESUN 3D+ went to CES with 3 types of 3D scanners, a Facial Scanner, Clothing Scanner, and a Desktop Scanner. ESUN 3D+ appears to be placing itself as a leader in the electronic world of 3D scanning with machines that meet different needs.
