HP is positioning these units to not only produce traditional prototypes, but also short run production parts.
if you’re in a professional environment, with a minimum of 4 to 6 people printing several plan pages a day, and perhaps 1 or 2 sets of plans per week, then you should be focusing on a WorkGroup printing solution.
Ever finish trimming a big print that took most of the morning to print and trim, only to find a scratch or wrinkle that makes it worthless? Frustrating to say the least. It can also be very costly.
The HP Jet Fusion 580/380 print in full color so they can be used for marketing or concept models. But, think bigger picture here. Think end-use parts like prosthetic devices, CMM fixtures for inspection, or labeling for unique customization per part.

When wide format PDFs don’t print correctly, users routinely point to their plotter as the culprit. The problem, however, may involve several elements in the PDF workflow.
HP PageWide XL printing technology could very well be the beginning of the end for traditional toner-based print systems. This article is intended to help design professionals understand why HP’s PageWide process is the most transformative innovation in wide format in 20 years. Feeling the Heat? Traditional, toner-based LED printers must generate high temperatures as
3D Print & Total Cost of Ownership The Evolution to Lower Per Part Cost Author: Kevin Carr – MasterGraphics The recent introductions from both HP and Carbon have not only affected how we can produce functional parts in new print processes but they are also approaching the investment in two very distinct ways. Carbon
Why are machine shops and tooling departments leading the way as early adopters of 3D Printing for prototyping and end use parts? Spoiler alert – they’re drastically reducing costs and boosting their competitive advantage. Such was the case for one company, Turret Lathe Specialists. Watch the video below to see what happened when they implemented Markforged
