Materialise 3-matic 12 – What's new 

New key features and improvements:

Strong link to analysis tools

  • Import and export lattice structures to FEA
  • Adapt the beam thickness of lattice structures in 3D, based on FEA

Profound AM buildability checks

  • Check overhangs for triangles and graphs to highlight problematic areas
  • Advanced filtering out of beams to promote buildability of the structures during the AM process


Enhanced design operations

  • Calculate the pore size of lattice structures
  • Modify your lattice structure locally by marking and freely moving separate regions
  • Convert a triangle mesh to parametric files (.step, .igs) with improved patching algorithms


Fully controllable mesh quality

  • Obtain an optimal mesh quality with advanced and new Remesh algorithms
  • Benefit from an improved, user-friendly workflow, with specific expert and novice mode

    “Materialise 3-matic contains more elaborate smoothing and repair functions than other software packages. The surface processing and creation of volume meshes give this package an advantage above the competition”
