With partners such as Nike and BMW, HP takes major step to reinvent prototyping and manufacturing industry with first commercial 3D printers based on open platform
Today at RAPID, the largest 3D additive manufacturing conference, HP Inc. unveiled the world’s first production-ready commercial 3D printing system, marking the next major step in its journey to bring disruptive manufacturing solutions to market.
The HP Jet Fusion 3D Printing Solution revolutionizes design, prototyping and manufacturing, and for the first time, delivers superior quality physical parts up to 10 times faster1 and at half the cost2 of current 3D print systems. By printing functional parts for the first time at the individual voxel level (a voxel is the 3D equivalent of a 2D pixel in traditional printing), HP offers customers an unprecedented ability to transform part properties and deliver mass customization.
Designed for model shops and 3D print service bureaus, the HP Jet Fusion 3D Printing Solution offers:
- Simplified workflow and reduced cost for radical prototyping
- Delivery of final parts manufacturing with breakthrough economics
- Open materials and software innovation platform that lowers barriers to adoption and enables new applications across industries
“Our 3D printing platform is unique in its ability to address over 340 million voxels per second, versus one point at a time, giving our prototyping and manufacturing partners radically faster build speeds, functional parts and breakthrough economics,”said Stephen Nigro, president of HP’s 3D printing business. “The new HP Jet Fusion 3D Printing Solution delivers a combination of speed, quality, and cost never seen in the industry. Businesses and manufacturers can completely rethink how they design and deliver solutions to their customers.”
