    “With the Build Processor, there is a lot of flexibility – the user is able to control up to 170 parameters, fully utilizing Renishaw’s open source parameter ethos. However, it maintains a user-friendly interface, using predetermined parameters so that the build can be prepared in a few simple steps.”
