Materialise Structures

Cover the entire 3D printing workflow

Materialise Structures is a module for Magics that enables you to transform a solid 3D model into a lightweight version. Apply lattice structures that reduce weight and material usage while preserving strength and stability.

Benefits 

Save powder

Add draining holes to hollowed designs in order to remove excess powder and reduce powder consumption and production costs.

Control build temperature

Since a model with structures requires less scanning, you can keep the generated heat under control and reduce distortion during the build.

Enhance your design

Keep your model’s design intact while reducing its weight. Plus, for medical applications, you can create porous designs for bone and tissue ingrowth.

Freedom of design

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

Transform a solid design into a lightweight model

Create a structure with or without an outer shell.
