Printing giant HP has introduced a new full color 3D printer series, Jet Fusion 300 / 500, with prices starting at around $50,000. The company has also announced a new collaboration with Dassault Systèmes.
Accurate, affordable color 3D printing is the end goal for many manufacturers, many of whom spend countless hours coloring their 3D prints after they’ve left the print bed. A better solution—but one that is currently costly, difficult, and exclusive to a select range of additive manufacturing systems—is simply 3D printing objects in full color.

Stratasys has long been at the forefront of full color 3D printing, while a few FDM 3D printer companies have come up with more affordable solutions to the coloration problem. Today, another option has been added.
As hinted at in its Q4 announcement in November, printing giant HP has now entered the color 3D printing game, by announcing a new series of Jet Fusion 3D printers: Jet Fusion 300 / 500. Prices start in the $50,000s, which HP says is generous enough to get small or medium-size product developers using the new additive manufacturing tech.
Printers - Something - Quite - HP - Jet
So are these new 3D printers something to get excited about? Quite possibly, yes. HP is saying its new Jet Fusion printers are the first machines in the 3D printing industry that “enable manufacturers to produce engineering-grade, functional parts in full color” with voxel-level control and ultra-fast printing speeds. The printers could be a massive boost, HP says, for those in healthcare, automotive, consumer goods, or other industries.
Included with the new Jet Fusion color 3D printers is what HP’s calls “the world’s first integrated and automated materials delivery system,” which allows for simple, hands-off printing for increased efficiency, while the 300 / 500 series also supports the three leading color file formats: OBJ, VRML, and 3MF.
