HP hasn’t been terribly relevant for a while but they haven’t thrown in the towel just yet. They are pushing the envelope in the 3D printer world. First they released the Multi Jet Fusion 3D printer, and now they have announced the Metal Jet 3D metal printer. According to HP, Metal Jet is a “voxel-level binder jetting technology” that’s up to 50 times more productive than existing 3D printing solutions.
