HP Partners with Adobe for End-to-End 3D Design, Printing

HP Multi Jet Fusion 3D printer.

Today at the Adobe MAX conference, HP Inc. and Adobe announced Project Captis, a collaboration between HP and Adobe for developing an end-to-end product for the entire 3D-printing process, from design at the computer workstation, to 3D printing, using HP Z computer workstations, Adobe Substance Alchemist software, and with Multi Jet Fusion 3D printers.

HP and Adobe will deliver Project Captis to partners across various industries, including game development, ecommerce, architecture, and fashion, among others. Project Captis kicks off at Adobe MAX and will run through 2020.

Alex Cho, president of HP personal Systems at HP Inc. explained: “HP is at the forefront of bridging digital and physical worlds by providing a comprehensive ecosystem of tools and solutions to the creative community, and we will continue to progress as the landscape and needs of creators evolve. Today, with Adobe and Project Captis, we are raising the bar for how creative pros manage their digital workflows and evolve their craft.”

Studio of the Future: Changing the Way the World Creates

The HP ”Create Ecosystem” spans HP’s Personal Systems computer group, 2D Imaging (printing) group, and 3D Printing group, as well as HP’s digital manufacturing strategy.

With the HP Create Ecosystem, HP says users can: 

  • Capture inspiration from the physical world and bring it into the digital format.
  • Create concepts in real time with the various tools.
  • Experience ideas in a new way by bringing them to life in the physical world via 3D printing.

HP says Project Captis enables a workflow that brings creators real-world material capture in a new way. When this technology is combined with HP 2D and 3D printing, the technology captures images of real-world materials and processes the raw images into digital materials via photometry. Creators an then use these digital materials as elements for computer visualization or on HP’s 2D/3D printing ecosystem. Through this collaboration, HP aims to deliver a solution for driving 3D design and production technology.

Product Lifecycle Enabled by HP 3D Printing

HP says Project Captis is the latest example of HP using its own Multi Jet Fusion technology to deliver innovation for customers.

As part of its Reinventing HP with Multi Jet Fusion program, HP says it used its  3D printing solution to print every non-electronic part of the Project Captis hardware in detail, including digital textures as well as all snapfit and lattice structures, leading to lower costs, faster time to market, and improved sustainability.

Studio of the Future Experiences at Adobe MAX

Adobe MAX attendees can stop by the Z by HP booth to view and experience workflows involving: 3D and visual effects, video and motion graphics, experience design, photography, and graphic design. The entire HP Create Ecosystem will be on display to illustrate creators’ ability to capture, create, and produce experiences using HP’s end-to-end ecosystem.
