Premium Data Optimization Software

A great design for Additive Manufacturing usually starts with a CAD design, a topology optimized model, a simulation, or scanned data as input. To benefit from the possibilities that 3D Printing offers, you need a versatile tool to make design modifications on the mesh level.

With Materialise 3-matic, you can clean up rough data for simulation or convert your mesh back to CAD. In addition, it allows you to enhance your design by creating 3D textures, lattice structures and conformal structures, ready for Additive Manufacturing. 3-matic also includes scripting automation to make it easier to create ranges of validation samples and improve overall productivity.

Features of Materialise 3-matic

Design Optimization

Materialise 3-matic is a 3D modeling software program that enables design optimization and modification on mesh level, using CAD designs, scanned data and topology optimized models as a starting point.

Post-Topology Optimization

Materialise 3-matic lets you redesign rough surfaces outputted by topology optimization. This prevents complicated freeform modeling work when moving to CAD, as well as more complexity and possible stress concentrations for FEA.

Textures, Patterns and Perforations

With the Texturing Module, you can directly apply textures, perforations and patterns to complex 3D shapes within an STL file. Textures provide extra value to your Additive Manufacturing projects by adding functionality or an aesthetic dimension.

Lattice, Conformal and Porous Structures

The Lattice Module allows you to create directly printable internal and external structures that add extra strength, provide cushioning, increase porosity, or simply reduce the weight of your design.

Convert Mesh to CAD

Easily covert your mesh file to a CAD file format with the Materialise 3-matic CAD Link Module. The conversion will recognize the analytical shapes in your part, and generates a fully parametric file without having to design from scratch.
