3Diligent Continues Commitment to Delivering Cutting-Edge 3D Printer Technology with HP Multi Jet Fusion and Markforged Metal X 3D Printers

Los Angeles, Calif. – May 10, 20173Diligent announced today that it is now accepting orders for parts made using the HP Jet Fusion 3D 4200 printer.  The company will also provide access to metal printed parts on the Markforged Metal X printer as it becomes available on the market. The announcement expands 3Diligent’s ability to print in the market’s broadest range of additive materials and technologies.

Multi Jet Fusion technology is promoted by HP as the industry’s first production 3D Printing system.  The system offers 10 times faster printing speed relative to existing technologies on certain build runs.  Parts are currently offered by 3Diligent in black Nylon 12.

“HP’s entry into the 3D Printing ecosystem has been hailed by many as the moment the industry officially ‘arrived.’  We are extremely excited to be offering this technology to our customers,” said Cullen Hilkene, 3Diligent CEO. “Alongside the traditional thermoplastic options of Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM), Fused Filament Fabrication (FFF), and Selective Laser Sintering (SLS),  it provides a new, powerful tool to create custom parts, and to do so rapidly in larger quantities.”

The Markforged Metal X is an extrusion-based system, which deposits layers of metal-infused filament like a traditional extrusion (FDM, FFF) printer.  During a post-processing step in a furnace, the polymer jacket melts away and the metal remains, sintered together as a solid part.  Markforged promises a wide range of materials.

“The Markforged Metal X printer is another compelling addition to the 3D Printing landscape,” said Hilkene. “It promises to offer a cost effective path to printing certain metal parts, and we are excited to add its capabilities to our range of metal printing options when it is in market.”

“We are committed to providing our customers a single service solution that allows them to access the optimal technology on the market for any given application,” said Hilkene. “The addition of these two technologies to our options – Multi Jet Fusion now and the Metal X in the coming months – are part of that commitment.”

3Diligent to Present Next Week on Metal Printing and Economics of 3D Printing at ID&E Show in Cleveland and and Exhibit at TCT-RAPID in Pittsburgh

Company Will Also Showcase its Available Technologies and Materials

Los Angeles, Calif. – May 4, 20173Diligent announced today that it will be participating in two major industrial design and manufacturing shows in the Midwest next week.

3Diligent’s CEO, Cullen Hilkene, will first present at the Industrial Design and Engineering Show (ID&E) co-located at the IndustryWeek Manufacturing & Technology Conference & Expo, taking place May 8-10 at the Huntington Convention Center of Cleveland.  ID&E brings together design engineers, plant managers and the top companies and engineering firms to learn and exchange application methods for the latest emerging technologies.

On Tuesday May 9, from 2:00pm – 4:00pm, Hilkene will present “Making the Most of Metal Printing.” The session will speak to different metal printing processes and relevant tradeoffs between them.  The session will also take time to explore non-metal processes, the economic considerations surrounding purchasing machines vs. sourcing parts from contract manufacturers, and findings from 3Diligent’s State of Professional and Industrial 3D Printing Special Report.  Audience participants will leave the presentation with a clearer sense of the state of the 3D printing market and equipped with the know-how to save time and money by utilizing the right 3D printing technology and sourcing approach for their project needs.

“There are so many emerging 3D Printing solutions that it can be difficult to understand tradeoffs and make informed investments,” said Hilkene. “We look forward to sharing perspective from our experience supporting a wide variety of customer projects and our recent market study.”

During the same week, 3Diligent will showcase its web interface and capabilities at the RAPID + TCT 2017 Conference, happening May 8-11 at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center in Pittsburgh. RAPID + TCT is North America’s preeminent event for discovery, innovation, and networking in 3D manufacturing. 3Diligent will be located in booth 949.  In the booth, 3Diligent team members will be displaying parts from a number of its rapid manufacturing technologies – including HP’s recently released Jet Fusion printer – and fielding questions.
