HP Multi Jet Fusion 3D Printer Voxel Level Control

Imagine what you could create if your 3D printer had voxel level control. Think of the crisp letters, the fine details, and the dimensional accuracy you could achieve. Until now, voxel level control has been beyond the power of small and mid-size businesses to attain.

No longer.

HP’s new Multi Jet Fusion 3D Printer boasts 1,200 nozzles per inch, printing 30 million drops—or 340 million voxels—per second, giving it extreme dimensional quality and pinpoint accuracy. This HP printer also expands the horizons of technological possibility by allowing users to control production at the voxel level.

What’s a voxel? It represents a value on a regular grid in a three-dimensional space; it’s the 3D equivalent of a 2D pixel. By controlling the properties of each individual voxel through agents, the HP Multi Jet Fusion 3D Printer can produce parts that can’t be crafted through other methods.

When HP introduced its new 3D printer in mid-2016, it fulfilled their 2014 promise to “work and develop voxel-level innovation.” The new HP 3D printer generated applause for its affordability, speed, and consistent quality.

What most impressed representatives from the chemical giant BASF, however, was the HP printer’s capability of controlling granular detail. “Multi Jet Fusion is exciting to us because we can customize properties at the voxel level. The speed and affordability broaden its applicability.”

To the end user of HP printing technology, voxel level control simply means they will have the ability to build functional parts with modified material properties at the most infinitesimal level. It allows part designers and producers to use diverse part-construction materials to achieve custom-designed creations. The HP printer’s accurate thermal control of every layer enables predictive corrections voxel by voxel for optimal mechanical properties.

HP printing researchers and designers are cracking the code on the challenges of the future. Emerging generations of the HP Multi Jet Fusion 3D Printer will allow users to control a single voxel’s surface texture, wear, and friction. Imagine a single part with multiple textures. HP’s future 3D printers could also control a product’s translucency, which means an HP 3D printer could print lenses or sensors. It will give users control of a product’s strength, electrical conductivity, and elasticity at a previously impossible level of detail.

With the HP Multi Jet Fusion 3D Printer, current users can build functional parts, with the potential of modifying material properties at the voxel level. Designers can create digital models at the voxel level, and the physical properties of individual voxels can be engineered and fine-tuned on demand.

With HP’s Multi Jet Fusion 3D Printer, you can create more than you think. You can start to craft the future—one voxel at a time.

Here are All of the Answers to the Questions You Have About HP's 3D Printing Technology!

When a new product hits the market, there's not always a lot of information on it readily available. So, when HP promises their 3D printer will reinvent how you prototype and produce functional parts, how can you be sure it'll truly live up to that promise?
