Materialise Custom Build Processors

Bridging the Gap Between 3D Software and Printer

The Build Processors significantly simplify the 3D printing process while we are working towards a more standardized machine communication system. Through the Build Processors, hardware and software are perfectly matched. The convenient man–machine interface reduces complexity and makes AM technology accessible to a wider range of users.

Materialise has strong partnerships with several AM machine manufacturers, which allows each party to focus on their core competencies. Materialise provides the software platform and toolbox, then the system manufacturer feeds it with process-specific knowledge. This creates an improved user experience and gives customers more options to get the most out of their machines.

Through the Build Processor systems, the AM data preparation process has expanded to allow slice-based technology. This enables improved handling of large files, such as those containing metadata on texturing or structures.

EOS Build Processor

Better Communication Between Materialise Software and EOS Systems

Materialise and EOS have partnered together to create the EOS Build Processor. This custom-built software solution is user-friendly and efficient, which simplifies the 3D printing process for the user. The seamless integration with Materialise Magics enables the user to benefit from all the advantages of this industry-leading software package.

As part of Materialise’s software platform, the EOS Build Processor can be integrated with Materialise Streamics to guarantee traceability, repeatability and more process control. Easy integration with Materialise 3-matic opens up possibilities for slice designs with advanced textures and structures. With the slice-based technology, including an impressive slice speed and sophisticated slicing parameters, large files can be handled easily.

Renishaw Build Processor

A Partnership for Better Machine Integration

Renishaw and Materialise partnered to release the Renishaw Build Processor, a tailored software solution that serves all Renishaw machines. This is the next evolution of the Materialise Magics/AutoFab Suite, allowing you to have one data flow using the best from both softwares. It also opens up next generation possibilities such as slice based technologies to efficiently handle large data and Materialise Streamics integration. This results in a flexible system that allows quick updates to new Renishaw machines or new upgrades, giving an easy access and overview of all your installed Renishaw machines.

Materialise Magics allows you to prepare your files and build platforms while the Renishaw Build Processor does the slicing and hatching according to the machine and build parameters. The Build Processor will also do the scan path generation.
