We can adapt to your needs, regardless of the technology you are using
With a machine park of over 140 machines running on our own software and global technology-specific Research and Application centers, Materialise can build on extensive in-house processes and technology knowledge. We’re experts at fine-tuning the relationship between machine and software.
We have 25 years of experience in developing specific software for 3D Printing
When choosing Materialise software, you choose the de facto industry standard. We have expertise in building strong partnerships with AM machine manufacturers worldwide to bridge the gap between 3D printers and game-changing applications. Our OEM solutions build on the long history we have with other products like Materialise Magics and Materialise e-Stage.
We offer you an open software platform for 3D printing
The different products and solutions of Materialise are integrated with each other, creating a unique software platform for 3D printing. This platform connects to every type of 3D printing machines. Through the platform, printer manufacturers can access 3D printable content from various sources and a wide portfolio of 3D printing technology.
Which Data Preparation Software Suits Your Customer?
Magics Print is a group of products offering you all the tools you need to prepare your files for 3D Printing, from file repair to part orientation on the build platform and processing 3D printable slices. Thanks to a one-on-one relationship between hardware and software, you are able to guarantee excellent results for your customers. Each Magics Print product is linked to a technology-specific Build Processor.
The Perfect Support Generation Software for Your Customer
Manual support generation can take a lot of time. Why not offer your customers automated support generation software? With Materialise e-Stage, they can save time by relying on automated support generation for any laser-based machine. The software only generates support structures where needed, and easy break-off points make support removal much easier.
Which Machine Communication Software Suits Your Machine?
We believe that your machine will give the best results when it is paired with state-of-the-art machine communication software. We have developed a set of Build Processors that will help your customers realize their projects on your machine. No matter what technology you are using, we are able to provide you with a fitting solution to help you realize a faster route-to-market strategy.
What makes the Build Processor unique?
The Materialise Build Processor contains:
- Output to an efficient job file format with data structure optimized for Additive Manufacturing
- Unique ‘slice-based’ processing algorithms for handling complex designs
- Zone-based slicing and hatching strategies
- Material-based printing profiles
In addition, all of our Build Processors are seamlessly integrated with Materialise software for data preparation, production planning, machine control, and more, as well as third-party solutions.

The Machine Control Platform You Are Looking For
The need for broader, more straightforward control over the Additive Manufacturing process keeps growing. That’s why we developed the Materialise Control Platform for machine manufacturers, R&D institutes, and anyone who wants to control or adapt the production process to their needs.
With this modular, software-driven, embedded hardware solution, you can take full control over your laser-based AM machine. It embeds a large amount of AM-specific R&D opportunities, leading to a fast time-to-market and great control over quality and process repeatability. In addition, it is fully compatible with the Materialise Magics 3D Print Suite.

Control Your Production Process
Assuring the quality of the production process is essential to any manufacturing business. When applying 3D Printing, it becomes even more essential. During the building process, material and part properties are formed, leading to the need to control and monitor the production process closely. To ensure that the printed part corresponds to your design, you can rely on Materialise Inspector. This control tool will allow you to analyze data from all stages of the production process, from 3D geometry and toolpaths to finished parts, in order to improve and guarantee quality.
