Materialise NV (NASDAQ: MTLS), one of the leading provider of Additive Manufacturing software and sophisticated 3D printing solutions in the medical and industrial markets, and AddUp, a global offer in metal 3D Printing by Fives Michelin Additive Solutions, have announced the development of a Build Processor that will run in the background of the AddUp Manager software solution. The Build Processor will offer users of AddUp’s metal 3D printing machines more control over their 3D print jobs.
“There is a need in the Additive Manufacturing ecosystem for process control and quality standards. Without solid partnerships between several players in the industry, 3D printing technology will not reach its full potential. It is because of this that we are proud to announce our partnership with AddUp by Fives Michelin Additive Solutions, who are tapping into Materialise’s backbone of software solutions to give their users more control over the metal print process,” states Stefaan Motte, Vice President of Software at Materialise.
With AddUp ManagerTM powered by components of Materialise’s powerful Build Processor software, users will now have access to state-of-the-art slicing and scan path generation algorithms. The software will be running on AddUp’s FormUp 350 machine, showcased at formnext.
“As AddUp itself is a joint venture between industry leaders, Fives and Michelin, we appreciate that it is through the right partnerships that innovation can be accelerated and added-value created. Materialise was able to take into account our specific requests. This will enable us to complement our own industrial production expertise with their market-leading software solution in order to offer our users best-in-class control over their prints,” explains Charles Fischer, Sales & Marketing Manager at AddUp.
