Why Choose In-House 3D Printing?
Most who adopt 3D printing want to accelerate their product development. They realize 3D printing can get them to their finish line, faster.
Because providing proof of concept and prototyping helps you win projects, in-house 3D printing can give you an unexpected competitive edge.
From paper printers to 3D printers, HP has evolved to create some of the fastest thermoplastic 3D printing machines on the market. If you haven’t already read up on multijet fusion technology, learn about these printers and HP’s technology.

HP’s Lease Service, Called 3DaaS (or HP 3D As A Service)
The HP Lease service helps you focus on your product design first. It’s more direct, and you have better control over the parts you’re making and, more importantly, the end outcome.
Details of the 340 HP Printer
Comparable in function to the HP 540, the HP 340 uses PA 12 material with a smaller footprint to give you fast parts in-house. What’s interesting, is this particular printer is only available as part of the Lease service.
You get a build size of 7.5 by 10 by 10 inches (254mm by 190mm by 248mm). You can pack 32 parts (30cc) in a full build.
- Layer thickness 0.08mm
- Printhead resolution 1200 dpi
An Affordable, Low-Risk, All-Inclusive Solution
Key benefits of the lease include:
- A nimble, flexible 3D printing option
- Having agile product development
- Iterating on designs faster because you can experiment
- Prototype, produce, and go to the market faster because you have the ability to adapt as you go
- Eliminate extra work designing support structures and redesigning FFF / SLA parts for production
- Embrace change by updating designs at any stage of development cycle
Pay Per Month
You can produce functional parts for a fraction of the time. Which is pretty cool.
- Monthly expense within your budget
- Includes printer, shipment, installation, training, supplies, support
- Supplies are automatically shipped to you
