What is Multi Jet Fusion?

Multi Jet Fusion (MJF) is an advanced 3D printing process that can rapidly produce accurate, complex and detailed parts from powdered thermoplastics. MJF parts have high strength and fine feature resolution, making them ideal for complex industrial parts. Developed by HP, this relatively new 3D printing technology is ideal for producing functional prototyping and production parts with isotropic mechanical properties, making it ideal for any application requiring geometric complexity and impressive cosmetic and mechanical properties.

MJF (Multi Jet Fusion) capabilities

Maximum build size Standard lead time Dimensional accuracy Layer height Minimum feature size
380 × 284 × 380 mm From 3 business days ± 0.3% with a lower limit of ± 0.3 mm (± 0.012 in) 80μm 0.5 mm

MJF 3D Printing uses strong, versatile materials

Leading companies in many industries turn to MJF for its industrial-grade materials.

Material Color Resolution Tensile strength Elongation at break Heat deflection temperature Application
HP PA 12 (Nylon 12) Gray, dyed black 80μm 48 MPa 15-20 % 95-175 °C Functional prototypes, complex assemblies, watertight applications
Glass-filled HP PA 12 (US only) Gray 80μm 30 MPa 6.5 % 121-173 °C Enclosures, housings, cases, fixtures, structural parts, tooling

Surface finishes for MJF 3D printing

One of the benefits of MJF 3D printing is the quality of the part surfaces, especially after finishing. Here are the surface finishes available for MJF.

4 MJF grey

As printed (grey)

Grey colour, smooth surface, no visible layers, powder texture

4 MJF black

Dyed (Black)

Dyed black by immersion in a warm dye bath. The colour penetrates to a depth of approximately 0.5mm on all surfaces.

MJF Vibro Polished Tumbling 2

Tumble polishing

Parts are placed in a tumbler of ceramic chips to give a polished finish similar to injection moulding.
