Materialise CO-AM Software Platform
Unlock the potential of 3D printing
If you’re 3D printing parts for rapid prototyping, personalization, or volume production, you need a digitally connected experience from order entry to part delivery. The Materialise CO-AM Software Platform’s modular applications and ecosystem of partners provide you with the tools for fully streamlined and scalable workflows, perfect for both qualified suppliers and internal 3D printing departments.
Why choose the CO-AM platform?
Meet quality standards
In-line quality control is still relatively new to AM technologies and presents a barrier for manufacturers to implement. -Deloitte
Only 21% of enterprise AM users use AM for more than prototyping. -Gartner
Because most current AM machines are made for prototyping rather than series production, mass production scale is hard to attain. -McKinsey

Our team is continually impressed with CO-AM’s ability to bring ideas to the table, implement quick changes for varied production processes, and enable us to drive more efficiencies than we ever thought possible. They haven’t just cut our costs, but they’ve increased our ability to serve our customers.
3D printer connectivity is a foundational tool enabling the real-time management of production requirements locally and across the enterprise. The ability to have real-time insight into and management of current production print queues are critical to meeting our customer objectives. The local and centralized enterprise dashboards with Lockheed Martin’s Intelligent Factory Framework and Materialise CO-AM’s machine connectivity allow utilization management of Lockheed Martin’s extensive additive investment.
Partnering with Materialise CO-AM has helped us take our AM ordering to the next level. The agility and willingness of the team to customize to our specific needs was something we’ve not seen from other software solutions.
One of the really impactful things was the ability for any of us to log on from anywhere and understand the latest projects' status. We don’t have to ask or phone for information. We can just log on and see all the multiple moving pieces.
