Summary: This presentation will cover how the two technologies — Multi Jet Fusion (MJF) and Injection molding (IM) — work, with a more detailed explanation of MJF. The speaker will discuss the reasons for considering the use of MJF instead of IM based on a product development framework of cost, schedule, quality and unique value. He will use that framework for a more detailed comparison of the technologies. The presentation will highlight a specific case study that the speaker had direct personal experience with — the development of the HP Z3D Camera. There will be some sample parts of MJF to pass around.
