Support Material Generation

Materialise Support Generation

Optimizing support structures is key to preventing deformation and ensuring a successful build. Too little support or incorrectly placed structures may cause the build to crash, but too much can lead to more waste. Semi-automate support structure generation to reduce data preparation time, minimize human error, and simplify post-processing.

Material simulation

Materialise Simulation

Simulation is a module for Materialise Magics that creates virtual prototypes and allows you to control part quality and reduce the number of build failures. Combining Simufact’s proven simulation technology and Materialise’s knowledge of additive manufacturing (AM), it offers a powerful solution tailored to the metal AM process.

Materialise eStage for metal

Materialise e-Stage for Metal+

To succeed in metal 3D printing, you must ensure your operations are economically viable. That means keeping costs low, part quality and consistency high, and getting prints right the first time. With e-Stage for Metal+, you can fully automate support generation to achieve these goals during every stage — from data preparation to post-processing.

Materialise software structures

Materialise Structures

Materialise Structures is a module for Magics that enables you to transform a solid 3D model into a lightweight version. Apply lattice structures that reduce weight and material usage while preserving strength and stability.
