In this first HP Jet Fusion video, the new 300 and 500 series 3D printers from HP are shown in action. Priced between $50 and low $100K, the new HP Jet Fusion systems will come in four version.
HP Jet Fusion Video: the 300 series
The 300 series will be able to produce parts in black and white, with a 4 agent configurability. The agent is the material that HP mixes with the powder and binder. HP uses it to change the properties of the materials at a voxel level. In this case, the agent is used for coloring every single voxel. By the way, an MJF voxel measures 25 x 25 x 80 micron. The 340 and 380 models are available with two different size build volumes (roughly 20 x 28 x 27 cm and 20 x 35 x 27 cm, respectively).

The 500 series systems are the full-color system with an 8 agent configurability which can reproduce millions of colors. The Jet Fusion 380 and Jet Fusion 580 models have the same build size configurations as their 4-agent counterparts. The top of the line Jet Fusion 580 system runs into the low $100Ks.
