One of the updated tools in Materialise Magics 22 is the lap joint cut, now optimized for cutting large 3D models and easily assembling the pieces. How do you get started? There are two ways to get this done!
Materialise e-Stage for Metal is the only software in the world that automates support generation for titanium, stainless steel and aluminum parts. Hannes Brenning, Process Engineer at our metal competence center in Bremen, Germany, was one of the first to try out this revolutionary software.
At this moment, we are preparing the launch of the next version of Materialise Magics software! Our beta program has started and a heterogeneous public of around 100 companies is testing out the new and improved features of Magics22 as we speak.
Meet Vivek Chowdary Penumarthi, Application Engineer for Materialise Software in our Malaysia office. He was selected to take part in a three-month exchange program in our Bremen office in Germany, designed to build up skills and expertise. This particular placement is focused on a topic close to the Bremen team’s heart: metal 3D printing solutions! We’ll follow Vivek as he learns about production, process engineering, design engineering, quality engineering and sales and project management.
Koiwai offers casting services for automobile companies and was one of the first companies to take full advantage of 3D Printing in Japan. Having invested in Metal 3D Printing since 2013, the company is a leading force of innovation in Japan’s metal manufacturing industry. How did they transform their casting process? How do they deal with the challenges of mass producing metal parts? And where do they see the real value of 3D Printing?
Why would you produce jewelry using 3D printing technology, instead of creating it traditionally? Here are five reasons that convinced jewelry giants like Titan to start using 3D Printing in their business.
Applying a minimal amount of support is a matter of taking into account your design and part orientation. When support structures are still required, advanced 3D printing software offers you a wide range of support types that are ideal for the geometry of your part.
Materialise and HP are exploring the possibilities of voxel technology to produce parts that have different properties on a volume-level. Together we created a voxel-printed part that visualizes the stresses that would impact a metal part. The 3D model was printed at HP’s R&D facility and sets a first example for the industry.
Sherhryar Khan, Application Engineer at the DLP Competence Centre in Malaysia, measured the impact of our support generation software for bottom-up technology and shares the result of the DLP knowledge center with you.
