Materialise incorporates more than 25 years of 3D printing experience into a range of software solutions and 3D printing services, which together form the backbone of 3D printing technologies, whilst Xaar delivers leading inkjet technology used in additive manufacturing 3D equipment. 

Proven in industry worldwide, Materialise Magics is the leading data preparation software for Additive Manufacturing. It allows users to make their 3D models printable by state-of-the-art mesh repair, advanced mesh editing, advanced mesh enhancement functions and more.
The Materialise Standard Image Build Processor bridges the gap between 3D software and inkjet 3D printing machines. It seamlessly interfaces with Materialise Magics and transforms prepared 3D models to an inkjet machine specific data format. The transformation process is described in build strategy profiles and can easily be adopted to any inkjet 3D Printing technology by a user-friendly profile editor. The Build Processor will allow users to output multi-channel and multi-pass formats enabling the user to build up complex print strategies. The advanced pixel fill methods such as gradient fills and tiling allow the user to fill print areas with whatever pattern they want, resulting in build strategies that bring the best out of the inkjet 3D printer.

“We are delighted to be collaborating with 3D Printing software leader, Materialise, to deliver to our customers a fantastic and comprehensive development kit,” comments Neil Hopkinson, Director of 3D Printing at Xaar. “Combining Xaar’s printing systems and Materialise’s software solutions gives our customers easy access to best-in-class complementary technologies and will undoubtedly allow for much easier and faster 3D printer development programmes.”

Karel Brans, Director Business Line OEM at Materialise, says, “We believe that partnerships are important to empower the 3D Printing ecosystem with the best solutions. The bundling of Xaar’s printhead expertise and Materialise’s neutral software backbone will enable Xaar’s customers to get the most out of their inkjet machines.”
