Materialise and Arcam Partner to Enable Seamless Integration Between Software and Metal 3D Printer
In the story of 3D Printing, software plays a critical role. That is why Materialise partners with 3D printer manufacturers to create build processors that enable a seamless integration between software and printer. Similar to the way 2D printer drivers work, Materialise's user-friendly build processors simplify the 3D printing workflow and give users more control over their 3D print.
In addition, thanks to the two-way communication between the printer and the software, facilitated by Streamics, the Build Processor does not just tell the printer what to do, it can also pick up feedback from the printer, which enables the tracing and storage of data on specific jobs. This provides an unprecedented controlled 3D printing environment, helping meet the rigorous manufacturing requirements of, for example, the medical and aerospace sectors.
This Build Processor is one of many that Materialise has released and we are looking forward to future releases with other partners.
