3D Blockbusters: HP Ups 3D Printing Ante With New Low-Cost Color Model And Metals Functionality
HP CEO Dion Weisler Thursday told Wall Street analysts that the company is accelerating its 3D printing march with an industry first a new low-cost, full-color model and a breakthrough metals manufacturing capability.
Weisler boasted that the new Multi JetFusion would be the one and only 3D printing technology in the industry that can produce manufacturing quality full-color parts.
The lower price point, meanwhile, will open new market segments essentially expanding the 3D printing market to a new class of products designers and creators, said Weisler.

The full cost color model is based on HPs highly regarded Multi Jet Fusion technology delivering to customers breakthrough speed, quality, and cost, said Weisler.
Speaking at HPs Palo Alto, Calif. headquarters, Weisler held up several full-color manufacturing parts including a multi-colored bracket that highlighted high-stress areas with different colors.
The designer can zoom in on high-stress areas and see where they might modify the design, Weisler said. Interesting shapes like this in full color are only able to be produced with 3D printing.
The metal printing capability is another blockbuster, and this pushes HP beyond the polymer plastics market. Now we are going to disrupt metals, said Weisler. Our 3D printing metals technology is unique and includes extensive HP intellectual property.
Both the full color, lower cost model and the metal capability will be brought to market in 2018, said Weisler.
HP is already producing metal parts in its labs, said Weisler, showing off a box full of small metal manufacturing parts. These are parts that are produced in the millions because of course where we are taking our technology is not just for small prototyping, he said. This is for mass manufacturing to disrupt a very large traditional industry.
The combination of plastics and metals is, in fact, aimed squarely at disrupting the $12 trillion production manufacturing market with lower cost and more efficient 3D mass production.
Calling the 3D printing offensive a massive opportunity, Weisler said the HP 3D drive is not a one or two year play, but a multi-year journey that should be a growth engine for this company for decades to come.
