CES 2015 - Green Project-owned GP3D will show off its $549 Sprout 3D printer during the 2015 Consumer Electronics Show (CES), as the company tries to gain interest via Kickstarter.

Sprout is 11.7" x 8.7" x 15.9" and is designed to be ideal for a compact desktop printing environment - using PLA plastic filament, able to print at 0.18mm resolution. The printer unit will be ready to ship "in a few months," with additional details released during CES.

"Our focus is to make an affordable and high-quality 3D printer for everyone," said Joseph Wu, president of Green Project.

The 3D printer market is receiving a lot of attention, but the high price tag of 3D printing machines - and filaments and other printing material - has scared away most consumers. However, as the price begins to slide, there is more opportunity for consumers to become familiar with 3D-printed technology.
