HP Inc. and Siemens, longtime partners in 3D printing, have expanded their collaboration in 3D printing to enable even more advanced functionality across a broader set of Siemens PLM software to change the way users can design and manufacture with HP’s Multi Jet Fusion 3D printing technology.
Siemens will enable now users of Siemens’ NX™ software and Solid Edge® software to design and produce full color 3D-printed parts. HP’s Jet Fusion 3D 300/500 series allows 3D printing solution of engineering-grade, functional parts in full color, black or white – with voxel-level control – in reportedly a fraction of the time of other solutions.
The Jet Fusion 3D 300/500 series also supports the leading color file formats including 3MF, enabling designers to easily produce the color parts they want with a reliable workflow. Users taking advantage of NX and Solid Edge for HP’s Multi Jet Fusion technology will have access to 3MF files ready for HP’s entire portfolio of printers including the industrial-grade HP Jet Fusion 4200/4210 and 300/500 solutions.
“Our users will now be able to apply the power and flexibility of Siemens’ NX and Solid Edge product design software to HP’s groundbreaking 3D printing technology, opening a world of new design possibilities with the availability of full-color parts,” said Tony Hemmelgarn, President and CEO, Siemens PLM Software, in a statement.
Besides giving users additional capability to prototype and produce new 3D printed designs, the collaboration creates new opportunities to accelerate the adoption of 3D printing at an industrial scale for customers and partners that participate in Siemens’ Additive Manufacturing Network.
“Adding the full-color capabilities of HP’s expanded Multi Jet Fusion platform to Siemens’ market-leading design and manufacturing solutions creates an immense new set of possibilities for products and applications,” said Stephen Nigro, President of 3D Printing, HP Inc., in a statement. “It is exciting to deliver the power of our technologies to customers large and small, fundamentally changing the 3D printing end-to-end process, from design to prototyping and ultimately manufacturing.”
