Siemens and Materialise technology integration streamlines product design through 3D printing

Siemens and Materialise have integrated additive manufacturing (AM) technology from Materialise into Siemens NX software, streamlining the design to manufacturing process for the rapidly growing universe of products being produced using AM (a.k.a. 3D printing). The new solution leverages proven Materialise technology to enable NX computer-aided design, manufacturing and engineering (CAD/CAM/CAE) software to accurately and completely prepare CAD models for powder bed fusion and material jetting 3D printing processes. As a result, the time necessary to go from a completed product design to a fully 3D-printed part could be reduced by 30 percent or more. A partnership agreement between the two companies, announced by Materialise on January 6, 2017, enables Siemens’ product lifecycle management (PLM) software business to sell the integrated solution through its global sales channels.
