Canon strengthens its 3D proposition

Canon Europe, has announced that it will roll out its 3D print proposition across all European markets, following successful launches in nine territories since March 2015.  Recently, the company formed a new strategic partnership with Materialise, a provider of Additive Manufacturing (AM) software solutions and 3D printing services.

Through the arrangement, existing and prospective customers across Europe will have access to Materialise Magics, software specifically designed to efficiently guide users through every step of the AM or 3D printing workflow.

Equipped with a customisable, intuitive user interface, Materialise Magics offers smart, versatile data preparation that enhances a customer’s 3D printing workflow. Underpinned by Canon’s consultancy and support, customers will benefit from the ability to import nearly all 3D file formats and native colour information to stay in control of the original data; repair and prepare files, as well as correct problems and create watertight data and shortcuts to improve the 3D printing workflow; enhance and edit data to take designs to the next level by adding logos, serial numbers and hollow parts, as well as applying textures, and creating lattice structures; prepare the build platform, duplicating parts and orient them correctly; and print better parts, view slices, detect collisions, save platforms and generate useful reports.

Chris Blake, Sales & Marketing Director, 3D Printing, at Canon Europe said: “There has never been a better time to invest in 3D. The creative and commercial opportunities for 3D printing are vast and the market continues to evolve and expand. From expanding propositions to fast and accurate prototyping, 3D print can unlock the potential of the most aspirational businesses in AEC and manufacturing. We will continue to build on our early success in 3D by investing further focus on maximising these opportunities for our customers.”

Lieve Boeykens, Business Line Director 3D Printing Professionals at Materialise, comments: “Materialise is keen to enhance the communication between 3D software and printers to help businesses bring their ideas to life.

We are thrilled to partner with a trusted name like Canon and put our software backbone for 3D Printing into the hands of businesses looking to print their boldest creations and innovations.”
