HP's new Multi Jet Fusion 3D printer: First LookA new 3D printing technology could be faster and more finely detailed than anything out there. A peek at what objects Muli Jet Fusion can print.
[MUSIC] Hi, I'm Scott Stein and this giant thing here is a 3D printer. HP has gotten into new 3D printing technology what they call multi jet fusion. Now industrial 3D printing uses a lot of materials and can sometimes take a lot of time. Multi jet fusion aims to produce high quality, very strong objects in a lot quicker process. And hopefully create more affordable objects along the way. Multi jet fusion right now uses fused nylon to create its parts, and HP was demonstrating that things like chain link could actually support cars if they were done right now using this technology. It's kin of like ink jet technology compared to other 3D printers creating droplets and doing a for stage process to build up the object. The idea may be accuracy is down to 20 microns, which is a lot more finely than a lot of Other printers out there. HP's open to creating other material too, down the road. You might see others. Similar to what other 3D printers on the market use, or even other materials. This is gonna be launching in a 2015 beta window, with the idea that people will finally get their hands on these in 2016. This is not for home use. This is a big 3D printer, but HP has also designed. Front end computing platforms like Sprout to be able to use immersive computing to create objects that could then be sent to 3D printers. Maybe 3D printers are around the corner, HP certainly seems invested in it. I'm Scott Stein and that's a quick look at HP Multi Jet Fusion 3D printing technology here in New York. [MUSIC]
