What is a voxel?
In 3D printing, a voxel represents a value on a regular grid in a three-dimensional space; like a pixel with volume. Each voxel contains volumetric information that will essentially bring a product to life with the desired properties.

1. Based on dimensional accuracy of ±0.2 mm/0.008 inches, measured after sand blasting. See hp.com/go/3Dmaterials for more info on materials specifications.
2. Based on the following mechanical properties: Tensile strength at 45-50 Mpa (XYZ), Modulus 1600-1900 Mpa (XYZ). ASTM standard tests with PA 12 material. See hp.com/go/3Dmaterials for more information on materials specifications.
3. Fast Cooling is enabled by HP Jet Fusion 3D Processing Station with Fast Cooling, available in 2017. HP Jet Fusion 3D Processing Station with Fast Cooling accelerates parts cooling time vs recommended manufacturer time of SLS printer solutions from $100,000 USD to $300,000 USD, as tested in April 2016. FDM not applicable.
Continuous printing requires an additional HP Jet Fusion 3D Build Unit (standard printer configuration includes one HP Jet Fusion 3D Build Unit). Based on internal testing and simulation, HP Jet Fusion 3D printing solution average printing time is up to 10x faster than FDM & SLS printer solutions from $100,000 USD to $300,000 USD on market as of April 2016. Testing variables: Part Quantity -1 full build chamber of parts from HP Jet Fusion 3D at 20% of packing density vs same number of parts on above-mentioned competitive devices; Part size: 30g; Layer thickness: 0.1mm/0.004 inches.
4. Based on internal testing and public data, HP Jet Fusion 3D printing solution average printing cost-per-part is half the cost of comparable FDM & SLS printer solutions from $100,000 USD to $300,000 USD on market as of April 2016. Cost analysis based on: standard solution configuration price, supplies price, and maintenance costs recommended by manufacturer. Cost criteria: printing 1 build chamber per day/ 5 days per week over 1 year of 30-gram parts at 10% packing density using the powder reusability ratio recommended by manufacturer.
5. The term “cleaner”, does not refer to any indoor air quality requirements and/or consider related air quality regulations or testing that may be applicable. The HP powder and agents do not meet the criteria for classification as hazardous according to Regulation (EC) 1272/2008 as amended.
6. HP Jet Fusion 3D print solution with HP 3D High Reusability PA 12 has the highest post-production surplus powder reusability with 80% reusability vs any other powder based 3D printing technology using PA 12 material. Consistent performance with only 20% powder refresh rate.
