Why Choose the Materialise Magics Sinter Module
The Materialise Magics Sinter Module offers a wide array of tools that allow you to nest your 3D models in a controlled way. Next to being a smart and very fast 3D nester, it also offers advanced options to protect small parts, indicate no-build zones and print on multiple machines.
Obtain Excellent Part Quality
Using the slice distribution graph, you can optimize the platform for a more equal distribution of material. This leads to an even heat flow and thus ensures both dimensional and surface quality of the highest level. Besides, you can apply variable spacing depending on part size and reach high levels of nest density without affecting quality.

Optimally Use Available Machine Capacity
The Magics Sinter Module will lead you to the best distribution of parts over your available printers, taking into account part priorities and other properties. In case you are managing multiple machines and producing a large number of parts, the multiplatform nesting option might do the trick for you. First you position the large parts on the desired platforms, and then you can let the 3D Nester fill up all available platform space for the desired machines.
Commit to Tight Lead Times
By increasing nest density, you can build the same amount of parts in less time, or more parts in the same build envelope. Add and nest last minute orders to a running machine without the risk of build failure.
Facilitate Job Quoting
Create a sub-nest of parts from the same order to calculate the representative build volume and offer your customer a correct quotation.
Run a Profitable Business
Increase part density and printer profitability, while reducing powder usage and avoiding scrap parts.
Tune Part Nesting to Your Needs
The Magics Sinter Module is based on the understanding that every 3D printing environment has its own needs and strategies. You can rely on our proprietary software’s powerful, accurate and incredibly fast multi-core nesting algorithms, but also adapt parameter settings for every situation. Features in the Sinter Module are patent pending.
- Assign the rotation freedom for each individual part in steps of 15°
- Assign translation freedom for each individual part
- Analyze and optimize slice distribution
- Define no-build zones
- Assign priorities to parts
- Generate protective cases to group small parts and protect fragile parts
Enhance Your Laser Sintering Process
Furthermore, Materialise Magics includes a whole range of tools to take full control of your plastic sintering processes, such as:
Wall Thickness Analysis - Shape Sorter - Part Labeling - Mass Labeling - Props Creation - Import any model as ‘no-build zone’ - Job Reports - Slice Preview.
A Joint Development
The Magics Sinter Module has been developed and continuously improved in close collaboration with its users. It is then validated at Materialise production facilities before being offered on the market.
Materialise Magics is part of the Materialise Magics 3D Print Suite. This software platform allows you to fully control every step of the 3D printing process, from design to printed part.
