HP Partners with Siemens on 3D Printing Technology

HP Inc. announces plans to partner with Germany-based technology company Siemens on accelerating the development of 3D printing for industrial production through the creation of a new HP-certified Additive Manufacturing (AM) software module from Siemens.

The new software module, Siemens NX AM for HP Multi Jet Fusion, is now available from Siemens PLM Software as an extension to Siemens’ end-to-end, design-to-production solution for additive manufacturing—often referred to as 3D printing.

The NX software module allows customers to develop and manage parts in a single software environment for their HP 3D printing projects, avoiding costly and time-consuming data conversions and third-party tools, and improving their overall design-to-finished-part workflow efficiency.

The NX module allows customers the ability to print parts with variable textures, density, strength and friction, as well as thermal, electrical, and conductivity characteristics.

The new agreement is part of the companies' shared vision of industrializing additive manufacturing, they say.
