Materialise NV has signed an agreement with Siemens’ product lifecycle management (PLM) software business, to help create a process for designing and manufacturing parts using additive manufacturing (AM) technology. Two companies will work to integrate Materialise’s in AM software technologies with Siemens’ digital solutions.

‘We’ve been in the additive manufacturing business for more than 25 years and our open and neutral backbone of solutions has improved and helped to push the boundaries of the technology,’ said Stefaan Motte, vice president of software at Materialise. ‘Today we can say that additive manufacturing is a reality even in highly regulated markets such as aerospace and medical applications.’
