Cosmetic and some Consumer Goods market is a great opportunity for 3D Printing technologies. One of the first use cases which is being developed is the print of mascara brushes. This application requires printing jobs including thousands of parts in order to allow Multi Jet Fusion technology to be a competitive solution in terms of Total Cost of Ownership (TCO). Also, in order to enable a better TCO it is required that the printed parts have a high yield, so the minimum percentage possible of parts are discarded by the customer.
In order to achieve this, it is required a method for monitoring part quality, which for jobs with such a big amount of tiny parts is not trivial. In this paper we propose a method for monitoring the part quality of printed parts to assure that the maximum parts yield is achieved.
