HP's Multi-Jet Fusion 3D printing has taken the spotlight at last week's RAPID 2016 show. But that wasn't the only news of note. Other companies made some game-changing software and hardware announcements as well, all of them aimed at making it easier to print quality production parts.

Along with a sampling of these, we also give you a couple of videos about HP's new 3D printers that weren't available when we posted Tuesday's story. One gives a better idea of how the technology works to achieve its high speed and precision. The other shows how the different parts of the end-to-end solution—HP Jet Fusion 3D Printer, Processing Station, and build unit—work together.
