HP Officially Introduces its First 3D Printers

HP has finally rolled out its first 3D printers, ending a 19 months’ wait since it declared its intention to enter 3D market.

HP Inc. broke the news with introduction of two models of its production-ready commercial 3-D printing system. According to the company’s press release, the HP Jet Fusion 3D Printing Solution, aimed at model shops and 3D print service companies, will hit the market later this year or early next year at a starting price of $130,000.

Different to conventional 3D printers, HP’s 3D printing technology can print using multiple materials or multiple colors at the same time, which makes the future of 3D printing in small-scale manufacturing a lot more interesting. The company believes it will spearhead a years-long campaign to remake manufacturing.

According to TonerNews, Companies like Nike and the automaker BMW have been trying the HP’s 3D models out. Nike sees possibilities in personalizing its shoes and other athletic wear. BMW needs better ways to build prototypes.
