Repair Your Files

Repair the most challenging errors and create watertight data. STL file repair includes wall thickness analysis and fixing flipped triangles, bad edges, holes and other errors.

Prepare Your Build Platform

Materialise Magics has the tools you need to duplicate parts, orient them in an ideal way, generate support for metal and Stereolithography parts, efficiently 3D nest your laser sintering parts and create no-build zones.

Generate Reports

Materialise Magics ensures you print only the best parts. It allow you to measure parts, view slice, detect collisions, save platforms and generate useful reports. This helps you to deliver parts within your quality standards and tolerance.

Edit and Enhance Your Files

With Materialise Magics, you can add logos, serial numbers and hollow parts (self-supporting hollows). You can also apply textures, create lattice structure and perform Boolean operations and advanced cuts.

Sinter Module

To make your Laser Sintering business time-and cost-efficient, we developed the Materialise Magics Sinter Module.

The Magics Sinter Module is equipped with a powerful multi-core nesting algorithm that will automatically nest your parts in no time. Thanks to this algorithm, you can save approximately one hour for each build and thereby reduce your personnel costs by €5,000 (1h/build x 100 builds x €50/h) per year. To protect small and fragile parts, and easily retrieve them after building, you can build a crate around them with the Sinterbox function.

Key Benefits of the Texturing Module:

  • Nest parts quickly and automatically on multiple platforms
  • Control the build time, height and density
  • Avoid interlocking and colliding parts
  • Create protective crates
  • Re-nest from an existing configuration

Structures Module

The Materialise Magics Structures Module is designed to help you reduce the weight and material usage in your designs. Whether you wish to hollow a part and fill it with a lightweight structure; convert a part to a lattice structure or create functional surfaces, the easy-to-use wizard in our Structures Module will guide you through every step of the way.

With hollowed designs, the Materialise Magics Structures Module enables you to add holes so that excess powder can be removed. The module features a structures library and can be used to alter structures to meet a variety of objectives, including saving powder, controlling the temperature, reinforcing your design and much more.

Support Generation Module for Metal 3D Printing (SG+)

In Additive Manufacturing for metal applications, ideally with the Metalform machines, support structures fulfill a larger purpose than just supporting a part during the build process. An optimal support generation for metal also minimizes deformation, prevents build crashes and reduces post-processing work.

The Magics SG+ Module offers you all the tools needed to find the optimal orientation of your part, the right type of support, good anchoring, heat transfer and more. With the guidance of the Magics SG+ Module, printing metal parts is no longer a big challenge.

With Materialise Magics SG+ Module, you can:

  • Conduct heat and avoid deformation
  • Optimize part orientation
  • Recuperate powder
  • Reduce build failures with build validation tools

Support Generation (SG) Module

More than 25 years ago, Materialise started with just one Stereolithography machine. And from the very beginning, it was clear that intelligent software was needed that could deal with issues in the area of support. The Materialise Magics SG module was introduced as a solution, and today offers the most complete support generation toolbox for Stereolithography on the market.

With Materialise Magics SG Module and SLA systems such as the RapidX and the SystemX, you can:

  • Easily identify critical support areas
  • Reduce data preparation time with semi-automatic support generation
  • Create and optimize adequate structures for different types of geometry
  • Efficiently remove support and limit finishing time
  • Save building time and material with non-solid, single-line, optionally perforated supports
  • Stay in control of all of your parameters
  • Choose from a complete gallery of support structures.

Tetrashell Module

Traditional metal investment casting is a long and risky process. Much time is lost during the tooling phase, a wrong assembly of the wax can cause an incorrect coating and the wax may sag during the investment phase. With Tetrashell by SOMOS®, all these risks fade away. Transform a solid CAD design into a robust, hollow STL model for any RapidX and SystemX Stereolithography equipment.

On the one hand, the software facilitates and shortens the investment casting flow. On the other hand, it offers a cost-efficient and reliable way to produce strong lightweight parts. Tetrashell has a wide field of applications, ranging from aerospace, to electronics and orthopedics.

Why go for Tetrashell by SOMOS®?:

  • ​Prevent assembly errors
  • Shorten the design evaluation from months to days by eliminating the tooling phase
  • No longer invest in casting tools
  • Achieve best-in-class quality
  • Experience impressive user control
  • And more

Tree Support Module

You want to make sure that your small and delicate 3D-printed items come out just the way you designed. This is where the Materialise Magics Tree Support Module comes in. Not only does tree support hold your object tightly in place during printing, but the trunks and branches also connect to each other, with only minimal contact to your print. This provides easy break-off points and reduces the time needed for post-build processing.

With Materialise Magics Tree Support Module, you can:

  • Improve the surface quality of metal prints
  • Prevent part deformation with enhanced heat conduction systems
  • Save time on finishing
  • Use trees to create inlets in your lost-wax mold​

Import Module

Materialise Magics bridges the gap between CAD files and 3D printers by importing nearly all standard CAD formats, and packages such as SketchUp, SolidWorks or Rhino as well as traditional ones. With the Magics Base License, you can import more than 15 CAD file formats. If you want to convert an even wider range of file formats to STL, the Materialise Magics Import Module is what you need.
