SLM Build Processor

A partnership for better SLM machine integration

The SLM Build Processor creates printing jobs based on a build profile validated by SLM Solutions for SLM 3D printers. This software is built specifically for SLM machines to ensure building strategies that result in parts of the highest quality.

Improves build quality

The SLM Build Processor solves the head-to-head vector constellation and limits the angle’s rotation for down-skin areas.

Increases speed

The copy feature creates slice and hatch data for one part and copies this information for other parts, increasing speed significantly.

Apply predefined formulas

Use predefined formulas to easily determine which settings are right for your parts and obtain more efficient test results. 


The new file format of SLM Build Processors offers a unique file ID to enable traceability and decrease the risk of human error.

Build platform cost estimation

Quickly calculate building costs in both STL-based and vector-based ways.
