Magics by Materialise
Additive manufacturing technology pioneer Materialise has announced the latest incarnation of Magics, its leading STL file preparation software for industry professionals.
The Belgian company concentrated on upgrading Magics18 with new and enhanced tools and modules. Magics18 - like all Materialise software - aims to produce the most enjoyable user experience possible and strives to offer users the best tools for their 3D printing and additive manufacturing production environments.
First launched nearly two decades ago, Magics has been providing support for additive manufacturing professionals enabling them to import a wide range of CAD formats and export STL files ready for additive manufacturing. Magics applications include repairing and optimising 3D models, analysing parts, making process-related design changes on STL files, designing fixtures, documenting projects and planning production.
- New and Improved Cutting Tools
- Expanded Measurement Options, with built-in ISO standard tolerances
- Enhanced Surface to Solid Functionality
- Improved Wall Thickness Analysis
- Expanded Reporting Questions
In addition to the new functionalities, Magics18 is introducing new and improved modules. With SinterModule, users can now view build heights and easily distribute parts over these heights. As well, SinterModule now offers an automatic Subnester functionality for its Sinterboxes. And to ensure users get the most - from their additive manufacturing machines Magics18 provides optimised Build Processor Integration for EOS and SLM. With easy access from Magics both STL and slice files can now be processed.
