As of Materialise Magics 23, you’re able to generate and visualize Materialise e-Stage for Metal support structure in 3D printing data preparation software Magics. This means that you can generate, modify and recalculate all kinds of support structures within Materialise Magics. You can generate e-Stage support structure without entering SG module mode or by entering SG mode and choosing the e-Stage points on the part. These points can be moved or deleted and new points can be added. After calculation of the support, you can request a volume estimation of the structure. This will help you estimate the amount of metal powder used for your build.
