The Build Processor allows users of the Renishaw AM250 system to input a standard tesselation language (.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. The software also allows material files to be designed and edited before an output is created, which can be read directly by the AM250 system.

Greater control

‘With this highly flexible platform, the user is able to control up to 170 parameters, fully utilizing Renishaw's open source parameter ethos,’ said David Ewing, product marketing engineer at Renishaw.

The function also gives users greater control of the build, with more support structure generators and build file generation algorithms.
