Fluid Tightness of HP Multi Jet Fusion PA 12 Components

Beitragsbild Wasserdichtheit von HP Jet Fusion PA12 Teilen

Fluid tightness is an often-discussed topic in 3D printing. While industrially manufactured laser sintering parts are rather porous and therefore often not water tight, HP’s multi jet fusion technology generates parts that are fluid tight without further processing. This article provides an overview of the part characteristics, incl. wall thickness and geometry recommendations.
