Belgian software and 3D printing service provider Materialise has introduced new features to Materialise Magics 24, as well as next-generation Build Processors designed to drive serial additive manufacturing.
As the latest version of the company’s software, Magics 24 includes Support Transfer, Support Transparency and faster nesting options which reduce the build preparation process for users in order to scale their 3D printing operations.

Fried Vancraen, CEO of Materialise, stated, “Technology advances continue to improve productivity of the 3D printing process and support the integration with existing manufacturing environments.”
“This will help to remove some of the remaining barriers to adoption and stimulate companies to adopt 3D printing not just for its unique design and production benefits but also as part of a connected industrial manufacturing process.”

Magics, the flagship software suite of Materialise, provides data and build preparation, as well as STL repair. In Magics 24, the tool has been upgraded to aid manufacturers in the optimization of production processes for scaling operations. One of the new features includes a Bounding Box option which reduces nesting processes to milliseconds, said to be 30 times faster than its predecessor Magics 23.

Furthermore, a new Support Transfer feature allows mass customization by copying the support generation of an object and transferring it to similarly shaped objects. This eliminates the need for complete redesigns od support structures. In addition, a Support Transparency feature enables users to make the support structures transparent, for optimal viewing upon inspection. The ability to schedule multiple simulation sessions is also available to run operations run.
“We continue to introduce new innovations and improvements to increase productivity and efficiency in the 3D printing process,” added Stefaan Motte, Vice President and General Manager of the Materialise software division.
“But as companies scale their...
