Why Choose the Materialise Magics Structures Module
The Materialise Magics Structures Module enables you to transfer a solid 3D model into a lightweight version. A lattice structure can be applied to reduce the weight of the design or reinforce it. Have a look at these four reasons why to choose the Structures Module.
1. Save Powder
Once you have created a hollowed design, you can add draining holes so that excess powder can be removed, leading to lower powder consumption and production costs.
2. Keep the Temperature Under Control
Since a model with structures requires less scanning, the generated heat can be kept under control and distortion during the build can be reduced
3. Enhance Your Design
Keep your model’s design intact, while reducing its weight
Create porous designs for bone and tissue ingrowth
4. Freedom of Design
Use the module’s structures library or design your own unit cell structures to create lattices
