Reinventing 3D printing in Europe: formnext 2016

The excitement from formnext last month is still tangible. One of Europe’s premiere international events for next-generation manufacturing technologies, the event showcased that a once unimaginable future is now just around the corner, and the 3D printing revolution is gaining momentum. In case you were unable to experience formnext firsthand, here are a few highlights, including the questions we were most frequently asked onsite, as well as a few of the eye-catching and thought-provoking 3D-printed parts on display in the HP booth. 


Materialise CEO Fried Vancraen Sees a Future in Scaled-Up Manufacturing for 3D Printing

With the launch of its Jet Fusion 4200 3D Printing Solution in May, HP re-defined industrial 3D printing systems. The HP Jet Fusion 3D 4200 jumps ahead of traditional 3D printers, boasting the ability to rapidly produce functional prototypes as well as production-ready components and objects -- at a decidedly lower cost. Leading 3D printing software and services company Materialise NV, is one of the first customers in the world to install the printer in its continued collaboration with HP to accelerate the widespread use of 3D printing in scaled-up manufacturing. 


Scott Schiller, Vice President of Market Development for the HP 3D Multi Jet Fusion business, discussed the future of 3D printing with Materialise CEO Fried Vancraen.

Executive Q&A: It’s a Turning Point for 3D Printing, Says Jabil Circuit VP John Dulchinos

What’s the potential for 3D printing when it comes to manufacturing production-ready parts at low- to mid-volume scale? Quite good, according to Jabil Circuit, Inc., one of the largest contract manufacturing companies in the world.



The future is on display at formnext 2016

If you’re planning to attend formnext then you’re probably aware that it has quickly become one of Europe’s premiere events focused on advanced manufacturing. It offers a forum for collaborative learning and showcases product innovation in 3D printing and other digital technologies that are already playing a significant role in the development and production of tangible goods.

We’re excited to join 3D printing industry leaders from around the world at TCT Show + Personalize 2016, on September 28th and 29th.

We Need to Be Openly Materialistic

With hardware capabilities advancing by leaps and bounds, and costs getting more attractive all the time, 3D printing has more momentum than ever. But realizing 3D printing’s potential still hinges on one critical thing.


When Will 3D Printing Realize Its Full Potential?


In stark contrast to the inspiring future vision of 3D printing, existing printers have for the most part been limited to prototyping and modeling. When will we start to see the industry deliver on the larger promise as a production-ready technology?


Setting Industry Standards for 3D Printing Software

A critical component of the HP Jet Fusion 3D Printing Solution is SmartStream 3D, our advanced, easy-to-use software that works hand-in-hand with our printers to create a painless production process.


3D Printing Growth Depends on an Open Platform for Materials

When HP’s President of 3D Printing, Stephen Nigro unveiled the HP Jet Fusion 3D Printing Solution, he predicted the HP Multi Jet Fusion Open Platform would prove to one of the most important components of our new technology. Here’s why it’s such a critical innovation for the industry.
