Gateway APIs for Customers (developers who have HP 3D printers) and Partners (developers building software for customers that have HP 3D printers)

Unlock new markets by enhancing the value of your products to enable end-to-end solutions. Help your customers gain control of their manufacturing fleet. 

The Gateway API simplifies device management. Whether your organization uses HP 3D printing systems, or builds software for those who do, the Gateway API delivers the data you need.

Streamline your workflow, optimize job efficiency, improve process development, and enhance production efficiency with HP’s API for 3D printing. A consolidated dashboard integrates data across industrial management systems1,  streamlining job submission and data access, and enabling enhanced end-to-end solutions. 

Benefits include: 

  • Robust, automated application programming interface into industrial management systems1 
  • Remote job submission and real-time status monitoring 
  • Access to a wide variety of telemetry, functionality, and data modules2
  • All data is available indirectly via the Gateway APIs.  


  • Indirect connection to each supported HP device through a single component, typically HP Command Center.  
  • Provides device discovery, so no need to add individual device addresses, only the Gateway address. 

1Supported industrial management systems: AMFG Workflow, Link3D, Siemens NX AM, and Siemens Opcenter.
2Access to additional data modules available only for the HP Jet Fusion 5200 Series 3D Printing Solution. Additional purchases required.

3D Real-Time Messaging MQTT (In Beta)

Enables real-time job data and proactive action against process deviation in real time.  

You can subscribe/unsubscribe to each topic, depending on the data you want to receive. Real-time messaging is enabled using an MQTT Broker, which is basically a server that redirects data from the HP device(s) to you.



  • Real-time sensor data 

  • Real-time build reports 

  • Real-time system errors, alarms, alerts, calibration, etc. 

 Typical use cases 

  • Real-time process development and control 

  • Real-time quality control
