The Technology We Use

At Get It Made, we use Multi Jet Fusion (MJF) 3D printers, a proprietary 3D printing process developed by HP. The printer creates parts by depositing a binding agent on successive layers of powder particles to build the part layer by layer.

The unique aspect of MJF is that it is economical enough to use for prototyping and has the manufacturing capability to create quality end-use functional parts. It is the most versatile additive manufacturing process offering a reliable service and our go-to 3D Printing service.

Why UK engineers choose Get It Made as their 3D Printing Service

Before committing to full-scale production runs, engineers and designers come to Get It Made to prototype their model for design verification. We are also set up to offer functional end use parts with MJF printing services. Unlike many online 3D printing service companies, we can offer low to mid-volume batch production with 3D printing, and then when you are ready to scale to batch production, we can support you all the way through to injection moulding.

Our business is ISO 9001 accredited, all Multi Jet Fusion parts are produced in the UK, ensuring quality throughout your interaction with Get It Made. For other 3D printing processes, we may use partners in the EU or Far East.

Finishes we offer

Our MJF 3D printing service offers a variety of finishes. Our standard is the As Printed finish, where parts are lightly blasted to remove the powder, resulting in a uniform finish with sharp edges and almost invisible layer lines. This process leaves parts with a matte, grainy texture.

In this section, we compare the As Printed finish with our other four offerings, each designed to meet unique requirements and aesthetic preferences.

Vibro Polishing

Natural Grey sample.
Vibro Polish Grey sample.

Ceramic beads are vibrated against the surface of the parts to achieve a smooth and aesthetically pleasing finish. However, the finish will have a different level of glossiness than an injection-moulded part.

As Printed & Black Dye

Natural Grey sample.

Parts are dyed under pressure to ensure the dye penetrates deep into the part's surface. Dye depth is typically in the range of 0.25 - 0.5 mm, leaving a strong, hard-wearing, scratch-resistant finish.

Parts are blasted with particle streams, creating a smooth, matte-glossy, scratch-resistant finish. Importantly, it doesn't alter the part's dimensions, while significantly improving its surface quality. The parts are then treated with our deep-dying finish

3D Printing Design Guidelines

Check your design against our design guidelines for HP Multi Jet Fusion machines. We offer detailed information for each technology to assist you in achieving optimal part production when 3D printing. The design guide is a flexible set of rules; sometimes, parts with complex geometries or beyond the specified limits may still print successfully. Nevertheless, to ensure the best results, we recommend following the guide.

Wall thickness represents the distance between opposing surfaces of a 3D model. An unsupported wall connects to the rest of the part on just one surface. Vertical walls should have a minimum material thickness of 0.3 mm, while horizontal walls require at least 0.5 mm.

Holes have a minimum diameter, so they can be printed without the risk of the hole closing during printing. MJF holes can be printed with a diameter of ø0.5 mm at a depth of 1 mm.

A shaft is a tall thin feature with a circular cross-sectional area. There is a minimum diameter a shaft can be printed without a build failure. MJF shafts can be printed with a diameter of ø0.5 mm at a height of 10 mm.

An embossed detail is a shallow feature that protrudes from the surface of a part. The embossed text should be font size 6 pt or bigger to achieve maximum accuracy.

Moving parts need to be printed as separate components on the same print bed. A minimum clearance distance of 0.7 mm is necessary to ensure the parts print without fusing together.

Long and thin parts are prone to inconsistent cooling, potentially causing uneven shrinkage along the part. This can result in a distorted shape that deviates from the intended design. Generally, parts with an aspect ratio (length vs. width) greater than 10:1, those with sudden changes in cross-section, or those featuring predominantly long, thin curved segments are susceptible to warping.

Tall features

How to decrease the chance of distortion when designing your parts?

Increase wall width to lower the aspect ratio.

Ensure smooth transitions between features with varying cross-sectional thickness, as sharp edges can be stress-prone areas.

Refrain from incorporating ridges on extensive flat surfaces.

Consider making thicker parts hollow or adding internal lattice structures.

of 3D Printing

✅  Geometrical complexity at no extra cost

Due to low-volume volume manufacturing and to the flexible nature of additive manufacturing, many factors of complex custom parts are easier to manufacture and less costly to produce compared to other manufacturing technologies. Also, complex features that would be impossible to manufacture.

✅  No tooling cost

With casting or forming, complex parts require complex moulds to be created or multiple machining operations in the case of subtractive processes. 3D printing often a simple process only requires one operation with no tooling costs.

✅  Decreased development time

With low-cost prototyping and comparably fast lead times, the design process is accelerated. Each iteration of a part can take a team as little as a few days from design to prototype; for this reason that 3D printing is classed as a rapid prototyping process, allowing design teams to test and prove ideas before committing to a larger-scale manufacturing process injection moulding.

of 3D Printing

❌  Less cost-competitive at higher volumes

Although the lack of custom tools and moulds means that start-up costs are low for 3D printing, the production runs need to remain small for the production to be cost-effective. Due to the economies of scale of other manufacturing techniques especially casting, 3D printing cannot compete for high volume parts, except for parts of extreme technical complexity.

❌  Limited accuracy and tolerances

The fundamental technology and layer heights of a particular 3D printing process mean that although suitable for some applications, 3D printing cannot offer the same level of accuracy as other manufacturing processes, such as CNC machining. 3D printed metal parts often need additional machining or post-processing to improve finishes and tolerances.

❌  Lower strength

Depending on the 3D printing process used, finished parts are often more brittle or weaker than other manufacturing processes. This is because the design of functional parts has been completed layer by layer, which introduces weaknesses between the layers. This is less of a problem with non-functional prototypes; however, this is an important consideration for parts that are used in more essential, mission-critical applications.

3D Printing FAQs

What is the difference between MJF and SLS?

Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) and Multi Jet Fusion (MJF) are both additive manufacturing technologies used to create 3D objects from powder in multiple materials. However, SLS is considered an older technology compared to MJF, as it was developed in the 1980s, while MJF is a more recent advancement in the field, introduced by HP in 2016.

The technologies are very similar; however, the key difference between SLS and MJF 3D printing technologies is the heat source and material used to fuse the powder material into parts. SLS production uses a laser, whereas MJF uses agents and heat lamps. SLS does have the benefit of offering materials such as carbon fibre. At Get It Made, we solely use MJF because of its excellent print quality and low total production cost.

How much does it cost to 3D a part?

Small MJF 3D printed parts like gears, brackets, or clips range from £15 to £50. Medium-sized components, such as functional prototypes, can cost between £50 to £200. For large MJF 3D printed parts, like automotive components and medical devices, the total cost is upwards of £200.

Does MJF require support structures?

MJF does not require support material for 3D printing. The unfused powder in the print chamber acts as a natural support structure while printing the parts. This simplifies post-production re-processing as there is no need to remove support material, reducing the overall time and cost of production.

Where are the 3D printed parts made?

At Get It Made, we manufacture all of the parts for our Multi Jet Fusion 3D printing projects in the UK. We take pride in our commitment to service our customers by producing the highest quality 3D printed parts and delivering them to customers in the quickest lead time. Manufacturing in the UK allows us to do this. For other processes like SLA, SLS (metal and plastic) we do use some partners in the EU and Far East, this allows us to offer a complete service, and a one-stop solution for all your manufacturing needs.
