Materialise is one of the companies that collaborated with HP from the start, when developing a Build Processor for the Multi Jet Fusion machine. “The role of the HP Build Processor by Materialise is to ensure that the key software existing today is perfectly integrated with our machine, so that the user has a very easy start-up with the machine and the barriers to multi fusion technology are very low”.
Some barriers that still exist are design for AM. Mechanical engineers are raised with the limits of traditional manufacturing and HP believes it’s important to open up their minds to the limitless freedom of design that 3D Printing offers. We need to work together to educate the next generation of engineers.
