It can be hard to keep up with all of the advancements in 3D printing, as they happen at such a rapid rate. There are so many different 3D printing technologies now that keeping track of them all takes some work. At 3DPrint.com, we like to help our readers learn more about the different facets of 3D printing through educational series, such as webcasts. Through our webinar series, readers have had the chance to learn about the differences between FDM, SLA and SLS, about Direct Metal Laser Sintering, and even about 3D body imaging. Now our next webcast is approaching, and it’s centered on one of the newest, and most talked-about, technologies in the industry: HP’s Multi Jet Fusion.
Multi Jet Fusion was unveiled last year, and as soon as it was unveiled, it was being talked about as the technology that would change the 3D printing industry – and the manufacturing industry. MJF offers unprecedented precision and control, not to mention speed. It’s an extremely cost-effective method of producing functional, end-use parts, and HP is working together with a number of partners to create new materials for the machine through its open materials development system. Both the technology itself and HP’s approach to collaboration in its development are different than anything the 3D printing industry has seen before, and it’s no surprise that everyone should be so excited about it.
But how does it actually work? That’s one question that will be addressed in the upcoming webcast, sponsored by HP, entitled “3D Printing Fundamentals for HP’s Multi-Jet Fusion Materials.” The webcast will take place on Tuesday, October 24th, from 1:00 to 2:00 PM ET and will be led by Dr. Stephen Rudisill, HP’s R&D scientist for the 3D materials and advanced application group. He will explain how Multi Jet Fusion 3D printing works, and how materials are developed with HP’s partners to meet manufacturing demands. He will also introduce HP’s voxel-level engineering capabilities from a design and production standpoint.
Dr. Rudisill is an expert on Multi Jet Fusion 3D printing technology, and will help webinar attendees to become much more well-versed in the technology themselves. His work at HP focuses on agent development, fluid/build material interactions, and improving the reliability and performance of current and future Multi Jet Fusion solutions.
Since the introduction of Multi Jet Fusion technology, HP has partnered with several major manufacturers such as Deloitte, Nike and BMW to develop new materials that will change the way we approach manufacturing. If you’re involved in the manufacturing industry at all – or if you’re simply a curious 3D printing enthusiast – then this webinar is for you. The live presentation is free, and you can register here. Regardless of your current level of knowledge of MJF technology, you’ll come away with a much greater understanding of one of the most disruptive technologies in the manufacturing industry.
