HP Inc. and Dassault Systemes intend to optimize Dassult's Solidworks 3D design and engineering software to take advantage of HP's Multi Jet Fusion 3D printing systems.
The companies made the announcement Feb. 5 at Dasssault's annual conference in Los Angeles. HP officials claims the company now is shipping more plastic production 3D printers than any other company in the world.
“The $12 trillion manufacturing market is being digitally transformed and HP and Dassault Systemes share a vision to change the way the world designs and manufacturers,” said Stephen Nigro, HP's president of 3D printing.
In other news, HP has introduced a low-cost HP Jet Fusion 300/500 series that can print parts in full color. Prices start in the $50,000s.
