HP enters 3D Printing with Multi Jet Fusion technology

After revealing that they were entering the 3D print market, HP have announced their first 3D printer, as well as new technology that they believe will revolutionise the industry.

The HP 3D printer that was revealed by the printer manufacturer certainly isn’t one that will sit on a desk at home, but rather in an additive manufacturing environment for large businesses.

The new HP 3D printer uses HP’s new Multi Jet Fusion technology, which, according to the company, will allow to drastically reduce printing times – something that would have taken days will now only take hours.

Multi Jet Fusion technology, which will “transform manufacturing across industries”, according to HP, spreads powdered material across a build area, then a fusing agent is applied using a paint bar, with a detailing agent applied at the same time for high-definition printing. Both of those separate agents are then fused together – creating one layer of the object that you are printing. So, much like any other printer, the objects are built up layer by layer, just at a quicker speed.

The HP 3D printers will use a high-resolution print bar, which can jet 350 million drops per second at 21 micron precision, which is seriously impressive, particularly when you compare it to 3D printers currently on the market. For example, the MakerBot Replicator 2 offers 100 micron precision, with other personal 3D printers reaching upwards of 50 microns.

“As we examined the existing 3D print market, we saw a great deal of potential but also saw major gaps in the combination of speed, quality and cost,” Stephen Nigro, an HP senior vice president, said in a statement.

HP have claimed that what would take a normal 3D printer 83 hours to create, their 3D printer will only take three hours. However, it should be recognised that the 3D printers it is compared to are for personal use, but who knows what the future holds for Multi Jet Fusion technology?

 

Print from an Android device with Mopria Print Service

mopria print servicePrinting from an iPad, and other Apple mobile devices, is fairly simple, with the AirPrint feature removing the need to install apps or drivers.  However, it is an entirely different case when it comes to Android devices – until the Mopria Print Service was introduced, that is.

The Mopria Alliance, which was formed last year by a group of printer manufacturers, such as HP, Samsung and Xerox, have introduced the Mopria Print Service as a way in which to continue their aim of creating a universal mobile printing environment across the printer industry.  It’s basically a way of recreating the ease of AirPrint across a wider range of devices – making mobile printing simple.

How do you use the Mopria Print Service?

First of all, you’ll need an Android smartphone or tablet, on which you’ll need to download the Mopria Print Service app from the Google Play store.

Then, access the Android system settings, select the Printing option and turn on the Mopria Print Service.

Now, make sure your mobile device and printer are on the same Wi-Fi network, as this will allow you to send a print job.

To print from your mobile device using the Mopria Print Service, simply open the document or photo and select the Print option.

From there, the Mopria Print Service should appear, giving you a selection of print option, such as number of copies and print size.  Choose the correct options for you and click Print – and that’s it! You’ll have your print straight from your mobile device.

As long as you’re printing to a Morpria-certified printer, the Mopria Print Service app is all you will need for simple mobile printing capabilities.
