HP has announced a series of new subscriptions and services to help customers more easily integrate 3D printing into their digital manufacturing strategies.
As customers scale to mass production with 3D printing, HP is providing a variety of new options to help them improve business agility and speed their transformation to digital manufacturing.
The new HP 3D as a Service (3DaaS) Base subscription service provides customers automatic replenishment of HP 3D Supplies, simplified tracking of billing and usage, and reliable remote and onsite support services. The new pay-per-build service is available for the HP Jet Fusion 5200, HP Jet Fusion 4200, and HP Jet Fusion 500 series 3D solutions.
The new HP 3D as a Service (3DaaS) Plus subscription offering integrates hardware, supplies and services and is ideal for customers looking to accelerate product life cycles with optimised in-house rapid prototyping and final part production. The initial 3DaaS Plus subscription starts with the HP Jet Fusion 340 solution, with additional 3DaaS subscriptions to be introduced.
HP is also expanding the HP Digital Manufacturing Network with new partners Prototal in Europe and Solize in Japan. The HP Digital Manufacturing Network is a global community of digital manufacturing service providers with a proven capability for high quality, high volume Multi Jet Fusion and Metal Jet part production. Customers around the world can access this distributed network of plastics and metals parts providers to quickly scale up parts production when and where they need.
