It was no small chore for investors to keep up with all of the announcements from 3D Systems (NYSE:DDD) during the 2014 Consumer Electronics Show, or CES, held last week in Las Vegas. In total, 3D Systems made more than a dozen product and partnership announcements during the four-day event.

Unlike its EuroMold 2013 announcements, the company's CES disclosures were more geared toward the consumer and smaller business side of 3-D printing. Highlights included a revamped Cube 3-D printer for consumers, the introduction of ceramic and food 3-D printing product categories, a strategic partnership with Intel, and from the Black Eyed Peas being named as chief creative officer.

In the following presentation, 3-D printing analyst Steve Heller highlights the most important 3D Systems announcements from CES and what investors can take away from the event.
