Materialise and 3D printer manufacturer Renishaw teamed up for the launch of the Renishaw Build Processor.
The Build Processor allows users of the Renishaw AM250 system, working in a range of diverse industries to input a STL file from any CAD package or to import native CAD formats directly into the Magics software. They can then edit, manipulate and heal models before orientating and adding build supports. Furthermore, the Renishaw Build Processor allows material files to be freely designed and edited before an output is created, which can be read directly by the AM250 system.
The new Renishaw Build Processor offers users a flexible platform. “With this highly flexible platform, the user is able to control up to 170 parameters, fully utilizing Renishaw’s open source parameter ethos. However, it maintains a user-friendly interface, using predetermined parameters so that the build can be prepared in a few simple steps,” says David Ewing, Product Marketing Engineer at Renishaw.
Over the last few months, Materialise has cooperated with a number 3D printer manufacturers such as FELIX and Leapfrog, to launch Build Processors. According to Materialise further partnerships for the software are planned.
