HP and Materialise, a 3D printing software company, announced partnership to pave the way towards industrial-scale 3D printing, including integration of Materialise’s industry-leading software with HP’s breakthrough Jet Fusion 3D printing solutions, and an important certification validating the HP Jet Fusion 580/380 solutions as fully compatible with Materialise Mimics in Print software for use in healthcare. Materialise and HP working together on several initiatives, including:
Integration of a new version of the Materialise Build Processor to support the full range of printers in the HP Jet Fusion 3D printing portfolio, including the newly announced HP Jet Fusion 5200 and HP’s Jet Fusion 500/300 Series of 3D printing solutions: Materialise’s Build Processor provides a seamless connection between the Materialise Magics 3D Print Suite and HP Jet Fusion 3D printing solutions, enabling advanced data preparation, improved operation management and production monitoring.
Free access to the Materialise Magics Essentials software for a period of six months for any customer purchasing an HP Jet Fusion 500/300 Series 3D printer: Customers can take advantage of the free trial to leverage the advanced color and texture handling of Materialise’s data preparation software, in combination with the full spectrum color capabilities of the HP Jet Fusion 500/300 Series. With Materialise Magics Essentials software, users can import an impressive number of file formats, including color and texture information, easily apply textures or colors on marked areas, and retain native color information and textures during model repair.
Certification of HP Jet Fusion 580/380 3D printing solutions as part of Materialise’s program to test and validate 3D printing technology as being fully compatible with the latest version of Materialise Mimics and Mimics inPrint software: This certification allows medical professionals to use the HP Jet Fusion 580/380 3D printers, in combination with Mimics software technology, to print robust full-color anatomical models for diagnostic and surgical planning processes, delivering broad benefits for patient-specific care. This includes cardiac, orthopedic and cranio maxillofacial models complete with vascular structure that have been historically difficult to 3D print.
