A Workflow that Makes Sense: File Fixing
Before using Materialise Magics, Sambon’s design team would prepare the CAD file in Rhino and send it to the data preparation team. They would then fix the errors they could and send the file with the remaining errors back to the design team for editing, or to their R&D colleagues. Getting parts with complex shapes ready for 3D Printing could easily take half a day.
Now, the file never needs to go back to the design or R&D team. With Materialise Magics, the data preppers can fix most errors automatically and handle more challenging errors manually. Repairing the file now only takes 2 to 30 minutes! On average, Sambon saves 3 hours on file fixing.
“With Materialise Magics, we can easily fix files which have lots of errors, such as overlapping triangles, bad edges, noise shells, etc. We can also cut bigger parts, which enables us to print parts easily.”
