im101-3d-printing-prototyping
MultiJet Fusion (MJF)
6 day lead time
HP's Multi Jet Fusion (MJF) can be used for both prototyping and small-batch-production of functional plastic parts.
Metal 3DP 101 - Part 2 - DMLS-SLM
Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS)
10 day lead time
DMLS produces high performance, end-use metal 3D printed parts for industrial applications in the aerospace, automotive and medical industries.
Introduction to FDM 3D printing
Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM)
4 day lead time
FDM is the most widely available 3D printing process, mainly used for low-cost prototyping and design verification with very fast turn around times.
SLA is capable of producing smooth surfaces that represent injection molded parts. This part was printed with High Detail Resin.
Stereolithography (SLA)
4 day lead time
SLA is most suitable for visual applications where an injection mold-like, smooth surface finish, and a high level of feature detail are required.
3DP 101 - Material Jetting part - square
Polyjet
9 day lead time
Polyjet produces parts of the highest dimensional accuracy with very smooth surface finish, used for visual prototypes.
