Materialise has enhanced its Magics 3D print suite with updates to better support additive manufacturing.

The software portfolio includes Materialise Inspector, a control tool that allows users to analyze data during all stages of the production process to meet predetermined quality standards. Inspector optimizes image processing for efficiency in post-build analysis and is capable of processing more than 4,000 images in minutes, the company says,making big data analysis easier and more efficient.

Materialise also now offers Magics Print Metal software for metal 3D printing. This software combines basic build preparation and straightforward job file generation, streamlining the 3D printing process. Metal machine manufacturers can tailor the layout and bundle it to their machines. Customers that need advanced data preparation tools can still rely on the complete version of Materialise Magics software.

In addition, Materialise has made enhancements to the Magics 3D Print Suite that will allow users to take more control over their additive manufacturing workflows. The 7.0 version of Materialise e-Stage for resin-based printers will improve efficiency in build time and material consumption, and other features including an improved algorithm will provide a solution for DLP printers. The company’s Robot 5.1 software update offers a 3D Nesting module, optimizing part positioning to save time, money and materials within automated 3D printing workflows. In addition, the 3-matic 12 software update includes new ways to manipulate and optimize CAD designs for 3D printing, and accepts a wider variety of FEA file formats to create improved lightweight structures and save time and money.

Materialise 3D printing software also includes embedded simulation technology, allowing users to simulate builds before production to avoid defects in designs, materials and processes.
