Arcam Build Processor

Simplify Your Workflow With the Arcam Build Processor

The Arcam Build Processor is a user-friendly software which simplifies the 3D printing process. It combines high performant slicing algorithms with a perfect integration from data preparation, through design and build setup, to part building on the Arcam EBM system. In addition, the Arcam Build Processor enables feedback from the EBM System, supporting build tracing and build data storage, thus meeting the requirements of manufacturing environments.

The Arcam Build Processor enables a seamless integration between software and printer. This results in a simplified workflow for the user with the possibility to create and assign machine-specific build styles to the parts and platform, as well as slicing and exporting the data to the machine all in a single software package.

Process Flow with the Arcam Build Processor

Key Benefits

User-Friendly

  • Benefit from a seamless integration with data preparation in a single software package (both Materialise and Siemens NX, PTC Creo, Cam Works software)
  • Reduce human error possibility with automated file transfer: from data preparation to machine and improved visualization during assignment
  • Share settings and theme files between different users with the centralized settings management
  • Do complex calculations on a dedicated server with remote processing
  • Benefit from second line support by Materialise Software Experts and regular updates of the software

 

Slicing Algorithms

  • Enjoy the benefits of high performant slicing algorithms with advanced slice viewer and multicore algorithms
  • Even very complex parts and platforms are quickly handled
  • Slice-based labeling that is more data efficient
  • Slice-based operations within the suite allow you to apply the label at the latest possible stage without having to manipulate your design
  • Slice-based operations afford the possibility to reuse slice technology in validated environments

 

Integrated and Advanced Lattice Design (Materialise 3-matic)

  • Handle complex designs such as porous, lattice and lightweight structures with Materialise’s unique slicing technology

 

Controlled Manufacturing (Materialise Streamics)

  • Trace and store data on specific jobs, thanks to the two-way communication between the EBM system and the Build Processor
