Materialise Build Processors

Shorten Your Time to Market           

Are you a machine manufacturer looking for a data preparation solution and a way to reduce the time to market of your offering? Or would you like to optimize the performance of your laser-based AM machine, either single or multi-optics? Then the Materialise Build Processor, connected to Materialise Magics, could be just what you’re looking for.  

Materialise offers a research Build Processor for Laser Sintering, Stereolithography and Laser Melting, allowing you to experiment with different scanning and hatching strategies from the largest library in the world, developed for all laser-based technologies. Next to toolpath generation, the Build Processor takes care of machine communication. By combining the Materialise Build Processor with the Materialise Control Platform and our established product portfolio, including integration with Siemens NX, you can rely on a complete platform from design to printed part, and fully experiment with your Additive Manufacturing machines.

The product will be rebranded to your corporate style. Yongnian, Longyuan, Winforsys, Sentrol and Hanbang already brought their own Build Processor to the market. We can develop one for you in just two months!

Materialise Standard Build Processor ecosystem

Why Choose the Build Processors

Industry-proven toolpath generation

Get access to a set of industry-proven and technology specific slicing and hatching features (also for multi-optics machines). Invest the enormous time that you save on in-house development on your core activities like hardware development and AM process optimization, resulting in a competitive advantage.

Marketable data prep software

Offer your customers data preparation software and build processing software based on our years of experience with collaborating with leading AM manufacturing. Our Build Processors are connected to a growing number of CAD/CAM providers. In only two months, you can market your Build Processor.

Wide range of applications, limited in-house development

By connecting to the Materialise Magics 3D Print Suite, a wide range of applications open up such as quality control, parameter development, production management, automated support generation, and more. Easily develop or optimize process parameters by creating test platforms with a variation of parameters in a semi-automated way.
