Why Choose the Materialise Magics Structures Module?

The Materialise Magics Structures Module enables you to transfer a solid 3D model into a lightweight version. A lattice structure can be applied to reduce the weight of the design or reinforce it. Have a look at these four reasons why to choose the Structures Module.

1. Save Powder

Once you have created a hollowed design, you can add draining holes so that excess powder can be removed, leading to lower powder consumption and production costs.

2. Keep the Temperature Under Control

Since a model with structures requires less scanning, the generated heat can be kept under control and distortion during the build can be reduced

3. Enhance Your Design

  • Keep your model’s design intact, while reducing its weight
  • Create porous designs for bone and tissue ingrowth
     

4. Freedom of Design

Use the module’s structures library or design your own unit cell structures to create lattices
