End users have had to wait a long time until HP finally presented what we know today as HP Jet Fusion 3D, the first bet made by the American company for the world of 3D printing. I say this since since the company restructured a few months ago, separating into two companies, Hewlett-Packard Enterprise y HP Inc.The second promised that the 3D printer we know today would reach the market.
The truth, as indicated at the time, is that HP Inc. they had no intention of rushing the launch of their new 3D printer, they wanted to get it right and show that they are still that company with enormous potential that it was not too long ago. On the other hand, they wanted to launch a robust model that was reference in the market and that, of course, it had all the functionality that customers require from a product like this.
Going into a little more detail, this new HP 3D printer debuts the technology called voxels that would be equivalent to a 3D pixel. This technology, as commented from HP, this technology allows you to create parts and materials very easily and with unique customization. For this the company has had to develop a exclusive modeling software where we can make drawings, images and even adapt existing pieces.
At this point, it should be noted that the HP Jet Fusion 3D is divided into two modules, the processing station and the container, which allows a part to be printed and cooled while the printer works on new creations. Despite the fact that from HP it is emphasized that this new 3D printer is 10 times faster than any rival and even a 50% cheaperThe truth is that we are really talking about a model designed to be used at an industrial level.
As a final detail, it should be noted that to work with this printer you will have to buy the 3D printing material directly from HP that it will make available to all its customers cartridges whose capacity ranges from 10 liters to 200 liter barrels. Unfortunately and as is often the case with this type of presentation, the price of consumables has not been disclosed but the company assures that it will be up to 50% cheaper than the competition.
If you are interested in getting a unit of the HP Jet Fusion, tell you that it will hit the market at the end of 2016 in several versions. On the one hand we have the 3200 model that will be sold at an estimated price of U.S. dollar 130.000 while the model «stop»Range, the HP Jet Fusion 4200 will be priced at about U.S. dollar 200.000.
