LAS VEGAS — 3D printing company MakerBot announced at the 2014 International CES show on Monday a collection of new 3D printers, including one that lets you print up to 10 items at one time.

The company launched three 3D printers — all Wi-Fi-enabled and featuring the same internal platform, but intended for different audiences.

“We want to empower you to let your creativity out … we don’t know what it will look like, but we’re excited to see,” MakerBot CEO Bre Prettis said during the event.

The Z18 printer, which ships in Spring 2014, is intended for industrial use and designed to handle large build volumes. It lets you print items as large as 12 inches x 12 inches x 18 inches. Along with the other announced printers, it comes with a USB port, ethernet and Wi-Fi connectivity, as well as a built-in camera that lets you share your designs with others. Makerbot’s website lists the product at $6,499.

MakerBot also introduced a more affordable model that aims to bring 3D printing into more households: the MakerBot Replicator Mini, a one-touch device for fast printing. The Replicator Mini starts shipping in the spring and will cost $1,375.

Meanwhile, the next-generation full-sized MakerBot Replicator for professionals will cost $2,899.
