The workshop program will cover topics including:

  • Multi Jet Fusion (MJF), HP’s 3D printing technology, and how it compares to traditional injection molding;
  • The impact of additive manufacturing for conformal-cooled mold inserts;
  • 3D printing of molds with new composite materials;
  • Specialized materials for functional prototyping and low-volume production via 3D printing;
  • 3D printing for safety-critical part properties; and
  • The new balance between injection molding and 3D printing for production.

The event concludes with an evening reception at 3NINE Orlando.
