3D printing service provider Forecast 3D has announced the opening of a new 3D Manufacturing Center for full-run, large-scale production using HP’s Multi Jet Fusion (MJF) 3D printing technology. The 21,000-square foot facility features 12 HP Jet Fusion 4200 3D printers and opened in July 2017 at the company’s Carlsbad, California, headquarters.

With this center, Forecast 3D says it now offers a full-process HP 3D printing and manufacturing solution capable of producing more than 600,000 end-use production parts per week.

“MJF gives us the capability to print an incredible amount of high-quality, engineering-grade parts in a very short period of time, which has transformed the way we think about manufacturing,” says Corey Weber, Forecast 3D co-founder/CEO. “These 12 HP 3D printing units now allow us to handle all kinds of full-production schedules for any type of vertical, and do it with speed, cost-efficiency and quality that’s just not possible anywhere else.”
