Support Generation Module for Stereolithography

With the Materialise Magics SG Module, you can create and optimize adequate support structures for Stereolithography models with different types of geometry. All can be done with a consideration for cost, with specially shaped support connection points for easy support removal, as well as with perforated supports that save time and material.

Why Choose the Magics SG Module?

1. Analyze Your Parts

  • Easily identify critical support areas
  • Avoid trapped volumes with early detection. Solve them with re-orientation or the perforator tool.
     

2. Reduce Data Preparation, Building & Finishing Time

  • Reduce data preparation time with semi-automatic support generation
  • Save building time and material with non-solid, single-line, optionally perforated supports
  • Decrease finishing time with teeth shaped part-support connections that peel off easily, or via perforated and fragmented supports that can be removed with even greater ease.

3. Reduce Build Failures

  • Create the proper support structure for any type of geometry.
  • Build in extra support on the lowest line of a surface.
  • Stay in control of all of your parameters.

With the Materialise Magics SG module, you can have a complete gallery of support structures to choose from, or combine:

Point support structures

Point

For very small surfaces and downfacing points

Line support structures

Line

For thin surfaces or edges.

Gusset support structures

Gusset

For high overhangs.

Web support structures

Web

For round surfaces.

Contour support structures

Contour

For easy removal.

Block support structures

Block

The best choice for most large surfaces.

Three Easy Steps to Create Support with the Materialise Magics SG Module

  1. Automatically generate a support proposal based on your parameters
  2. Fine-tune the proposal and optimize it to your needs
  3. Export the support as a separate STL, either merged with your part or sliced
