The HP 3D Printing platform is the initial step in HP's vision for a new era of 3D printing, delivering significant improvements in speed, quality and cost versus existing solutions in the market. By printing functional parts for the first time at the individual voxel level (a voxel is the 3D equivalent of a 2D pixel in traditional printing), the HP solution offers customers an unprecedented ability to transform part properties and deliver mass customization.

HP's 3D Printing platform is unique in its ability to address over 340 million voxels per second, versus one point at a time, giving prototyping and manufacturing partners radically faster build speeds, functional parts and breakthrough economics.

"As we continue to scale our 3D printing business globally, we are expanding our solutions' availability through new resellers such as Metro Systems," said Mr.Pavin Vorapruck, Managing Director, HP Inc. Thailand. "By doing so, we hope to help local businesses accelerate their adoption of Industry 4.0 technologies and overall digital transformation, while staying competitive in the $12 trillion manufacturing industry."
