Materialise e-Stage for SLA and DLP
Materialise e-Stage has a very powerful algorithm that leads to significant cost savings, especially labor costs. It has been proven that the data preparation time for Stereolithography builds can be reduced by up to 95%, whereas the finishing time can be reduced by up to 25%. You can tweak the algorithm in the extensive parameter list and optimize it depending on the machine, material and part geometry to ensure that all of your builds are created successfully. In our latest version, Materialise e-Stage 7.0, we introduced gusset preference parameters, which you can tweak to save up to 50% more material.
Save time on
Spending hours editing support structure could be a thing of the past. Materialise e-Stage is fully automated, due to an intelligent algorithm and extensive parameter set.

on support design
“Furthermore, the finishing process after using Materialise e-Stage is really effective and easier than some other software packages with heavier supports. We can easily remove the support structures of big sculptures with many contact points. After the support removal, there are only a few marks on the prints, which can be smoothened in no time”.

Reduce the risk of build crashes
Since the support generated by e-Stage is created automatically, human errors cannot occur. Every surface that should be supported will be supported.
The software also takes into account the force of the recoater (‘horizontal top load’ parameter) in order to prevent crashes caused by the recoater. It will also reinforce the support connections of tall, thin parts to ensure a proper stabilization and to prevent deformations while building. You can change the size of these connections in the parameter sets (‘horizontal connection height’ parameter).
