Materialise Build Processor

Bridging the Gap between 3D Printers and Software

Get the Most Out of Your 3D Printing Machine

3D printers are complex, and getting the desired result requires knowledge of machine parameters, processes and materials. To seamlessly link software with hardware and reduce the complexity of 3D Printing, the Materialise Build Processor simplifies machine communication through a straightforward user interface.

Materialise has strong partnerships with the majority of leading AM machine manufacturers worldwide and several key CAD/CAM software manufacturers. For independent software vendors, the Materialise Build Processor offers a single API interface. We provide the software platform and toolbox, then the AM machine manufacturer feeds it with process-specific knowledge. Together we bridge the gap between 3D printers and enable game-changing applications.

Materialise released 130+ Build Processors for various partners using different AM technologies.
