AM workflow integration

Our NxG BPs empower you to scale your build processor development with customizable BPs that can be built at speed, enabling shorter and cheaper software development cycles. Furthermore, they work with Magics and within the Materialise CO-AM Software Platform to provide you and your customers with a complete AM software ecosystem. Alternatively, NxG BPs also operate independently to support your AM workflow as you see fit.
