Last year HP expanded its 3D printing portfolio with the introduction of the Jet Fusion 300 / 500 series of 3D printers, with full color capabilities. Depending on configuration and colour preference, the Jet Fusion 300 / 500 series is available starting in the $50,000s, thus opening up the market to small- to medium-sized product development teams and design businesses, entrepreneurs, and universities and research institutions.
HP’s unique ability to control part properties at the individual voxel level is now available, for the first time, in full colour. In addition to providing voxel-level control, the new Jet Fusion 300 / 500 series of 3D printers has a compact design, enhanced workflow solution, and the world’s first integrated and automated materials delivery system, enabling greater unattended operation, ease of use, and dramatically increasing production efficiency and output. The Jet Fusion 300 / 500 series also supports the three leading color file formats (OBJ, VRML, and 3MF) enabling designers to reliably and easily produce the parts they want without the inconvenience of file conversion or data corruption.
The HP Jet Fusion 300 / 500 series offerings include:
HP Jet Fusion 340 (Black and White) / 380 (Colour): for customers who have smaller part-size needs or who commonly print fewer parts per build.
HP Jet Fusion 540 (Black and White) / 580 (Colour): with a bigger build size than the 300 series for customers who have larger part-size needs or heavier production demands.
