HP Multi Jet Fusion is a powerful 3D printing technology that produces highly accurate and durable parts at fast speeds, especially compared to other powder bed fusion technologies. Multi Jet Fusion parts are used for end-use, low-volume production, for rapid prototyping, or as a bridge process to injection molding. Get a feel for how your parts will perform with minimal upfront costs.

Xometry's HP Multi Jet Fusion 3D Printing service has a recommended build envelope of 15” x 11” x 15”.

For engineers who are heavy users of industrial 3D printing services, we designed a subscription service to stretch your budget: 3D Printing Pro Membership.

Advantages of Multi Jet Fusion


Multi Jet Fusion 3D Printing can make a single part or component as easily as dozens or hundreds of production pieces.

Complex Geometry

Geometries can be built more easily due to the 3D printing process, adding complexity without additional cost.

Rapid Turnaround

Parts can typically be shipped in 3-4 days, allowing for faster design iterations and speed to market.

Part Production

Multi Jet Fusion 3D Printing is capable of producing end-use parts with near-isotropic properties on-demand, increasing throughput.


We use the latest generation of Multi Jet Fusion technologies to meet tolerances of +/-.012” or +/-.003” per inch, whichever is greater. Please see our Manufacturing Standards for more details.


Nylon is a durable material with great impact strength, medium flexibility, and high resistance to environmental factors. Glass filled materials have increased stiffness compared to unfilled.

Multi Jet Fusion Finishes


Multi Jet Fusion parts are de-powdered with a grit blasting process, followed by detailed manual de-powdering for more complex geometries. These parts are left with a surface finish comparable to a sugar cube and a distinct grey color. Natural grey color may be inconsistent depending on feature size and build orientation.

Dyed Black

Parts go through the standard de-powdering process and are then in a heated dye solution. Dyed parts will have a consistent matte black look and are highly recommended for production consistency.

Additional Finishes

Xometry provides additional Multi Jet Fusion finishing options, including but not limited to: sanding, painting, and plating to meet your needs.

Applications for Multi Jet Fusion

Concept Models

The speed and versatility of Multi Jet Fusion let product developers create tough and detailed physical snapshots of their designs.

Rapid Prototyping

Multi Jet Fusion can be used to create fully-functional prototypes, complete with moving parts, as well as all-in-one assemblies.

Direct Digital Manufacturing

The high accuracy and consistency of Multi Jet Fusion make it an ideal way to build large quantities of discrete or customized parts.

Overview: What is Multi Jet Fusion?

How HP Multi Jet Fusion Works

Like all powder-based 3D printing processes, HP Multi Jet Fusion builds parts layer by layer, using a fusing agent and heat to set each layer before moving onto the next. In the more traditional 3D printing processes — such as Selective Laser Sintering (SLS), Stereolithography (SLA), or Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS) — each part is imaged, layer by layer, with a single laser beam. HP’s Multi Jet Fusion works a bit more like a traditional ink-jet printer with a printhead that deposits the material, and then a fusing agent, across the entire build plate in one pass, allowing for the printing of multiple parts simultaneously.

The benefits of HP’s Multi Jet Fusion 3D Printing Process

While there are many benefits to HP Multi Jet Fusion, a few truly stand out. For starters, the standard build parameters are optimized for best density. The result is that Multi Jet Fusion parts are watertight.

If you like SLS but want to produce higher quantities for small-batch production runs, Multi Jet Fusion is the way to go. The ability to print multiple parts simultaneously across the entire build volume means you can print parts at rates up to 10X faster than SLS or other 3D printing processes. Also, Multi Jet Fusion delivers more balanced mechanical properties across the X, Y, and Z axes compared to SLS.

If you’re interested in injection molding for your project, it’s always a good idea to get a 3D printed “test” part before making the investment in metal molds. While SLA is a great 3D printing process for extremely detailed and high-resolution prints, the UV cured resins are not as tough as traditional thermoplastics. Prints begin to degrade when exposed to UV light and moisture. Multi Jet Fusion, on the other hand, can produce extremely accurate prints while also maintaining the structural durability of traditional thermoplastics, especially when using glass-filled nylon. This makes it a great process for testing fit and functionality before taking your project to injection molding.

The Benefits of Working with Xometry for Multi Jet Fusion

HP Multi Jet Fusion is an extremely exciting, robust and flexible addition to Xometry’s manufacturing capabilities. It’s excellent for prototyping, small-batch production runs or as a bridge process to injection molding, allowing you to get a feel for how your parts will perform with minimal upfront costs.
