After design enhancement, the engineers used Materialise Magics to add logos of the three companies, find the optimal orientation, position the part within the build envelope and generate support structures. Good support structures fulfills a larger purpose than just supporting the part during the build process. It also minimizes deformation so that the build process will not be terminated.
With our Support Generation Module for metal, it was possible to anchor the part and transfer the heat. As one of our trusted beta testers, Renishaw already has access to Materialise Magics, which provides even more control of support structures for metal 3D printing.
