The Belgian 3D printing leader will support the three companies through customised software solutions for their desktop machines. Materialise is building partnerships with machine manufacturers across both the industrial and desktop ends of the market to improve the communication between 3D software and a wide range of 3D printers.
Former’s Farm is specialised in developing and distributing filament for 3D printers, building desktop FDM printers for educational, prototyping and design purposes, and providing print services for prototyping companies. The Materialise-developed Form Engine, custom-made build software is designed to simplify the 3D printing process for its new FDM printer.
With Goo3D, Materialise has developed the G printer Studio software for Good3D’s compact UV-
DLP G Printers, which are being funded through Indiegogo. The G Printer Studio software will allow users to repair their model, slice it stably, and print quality parts in an easy and reliable way. The intuitive user interface and workflow will allow a broad audience to access 3D printing technology. In addition, Materialise’s fully automated support generation software will be incorporated into the G Printer Studio software, so that users no longer need to generate support manually.
Finally Materialise is equipping Lincsolution’s Link Pro desktop printer with the Link Builder custom software. The new software will make it easy for users of the Link Pro printer, mainly situated in the education and research fields, to prepare their files for 3D Printing. The software is based on Materialise’s state-of-the-art data preparation software Magics, combined with a Build Processor framework. This framework will ensure that users can slice and hatch files in a fast and reliable way. The user-friendly settings will allow a wide range of users to print high-quality models. Through the connection with 3DPrintCloud, a file riddled with errors will be automatically transformed into a watertight design.
Materialise are currently exhibiting at formnext powered by TCT in Frankfurt (17th-20th November).
