Tutorials Magics Print

How to successfully 3D print models using a DLP or metal printer? In this series of tutorials, we explain you how to prepare your platform, repair file errors, edit the 3D model in various ways, position the model, generate support structures and finally perform an analysis before sending it to the printer. Our Magics Print software is based on Materialise Magics, the industry standard software for data preparation, but it is fine-tuned to serve the specific needs of DLP or metal printer users like you.
