HP, Siemens Expand Additive Manufacturing Strategic Partnership

HP and Siemens are expanding their longstanding collaboration to enable more advanced functionality across a broader set of Siemens PLM software, in order to change the way users design and manufacture with HP’s Multi Jet Fusion 3D printing technology.

Siemens and HP now enable users of Siemens’ NX™ and Solid Edge® software to design and produce full color 3D-printed parts. HP’s Jet Fusion 3D 300/500 series is the industry’s first 3D-printing solution for the production of engineering-grade, functional parts in full color, black or white—with voxel-level control —faster than other solutions, according to the companies.

The Jet Fusion 3D 300/500 series also supports the leading color file formats including 3MF, enabling designers to produce desired color parts with a reliable workflow, according to the companies. Users 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. Customers will have the ability to quickly and economically prototype and produce new designs and end-part applications with advanced voxel capabilities, the companies said.

In addition, 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.

HP’s Multi Jet Fusion 3D printing technology will be showcased as a foundational 3D-printing platform in Siemens’ Additive Manufacturing Experience Center in Erlangen, Germany, which invites customers to discover the latest additive manufacturing technologies and their applications first-hand in a design and manufacturing showroom environment.
