Jet Fusion

Looking for the best of both worlds of 3D printing? Existing processes (SLS, SLA, etc.) have limitations that the revolutionary Multi Jet Fusion (MJF) technology addresses.  HP™ has translated its legendary 2D expertise into a 3D world and the result is process unrivaled in quality and speed.  You won’t have to put up with grainy finishes and long lead times to get strong, beautiful and production-capable parts

  • Faster design cycle
  • Multiple part iterations within a single build
  • Dimensional stability
  • Fewer design constraints
  • Superior material properties
  • Real parts overnight
  • Reusable materials
  • Low-volume production

Jet Fusion Design Guidelines

Please note that these are are GUIDELINES, not hard and fast rules. Follow these and you should be in pretty good shape, but we'll let you know if we see any problems.

Standard Material Properties

MJF is an additive process where parts are built layer-by-layer in nylon material, but unlike any process we’ve seen before.  It’s a unique, hybrid methodology which employs print heads to first deposit powdered material onto a build plate.  MJF then adds fusing and detailing agents into the mix at the Voxel (3d Pixel) level. Heat energy is then passed over the mix to fuse, cure and apply specifically-tailored mechanical properties.

The resulting parts are extremely strong, highly accurate and have a surface finish that makes them ideal for mechanical testing and production manufacturing
