Stay up to date with everything that is happening in the wonderful world of AM via our LinkedIn community.

Many may not know it but Xaar’s inkjet heads are already used in several material jetting (inkjetting) 3D printing technologies, including bioprinting. In a further enhancement of services to its 3D customers, Xaar is including market-leading 3D print software Materialise Magics and Materialise Build Processor as a bundle option with Xaar’s additive manufacturing development kit.

This means that Xaar’s customers who are looking to develop their own inkjet enabled 3D Printing /Additive Manufacturing equipment will benefit from a simple “one-stop shop” approach to initiating a development programme using the very best 3D Printing software and inkjet development starter kit.

“We are delighted to be collaborating with 3D Printing software leader, Materialise, to deliver to our customers a fantastic and comprehensive development kit. 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 programs”. Professor Neil Hopkinson, Director of 3D Printing at Xaar.

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.

“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.” Karel Brans, Director Business Line OEM at Materialise.

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 (images). 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.
