Celebrating 30 Years of Meaningful Innovation

Materialise has come a long way in 30 years. Will you join us for the rest of the journey?   

When we began, computers were large, clunky boxes, and social media and online commerce had yet to be invented. Times have changed, and so have we. 

Materialise was born out of a desire to make a difference using 3D printing. We share a passion for innovation with our customers, as well as a desire to constantly improve, increase efficiency, and solve challenges. We have launched pioneering technology in a range of markets and want to continue doing that, together with you.
