Materialise Launches Module for 3D Printing Preparation

Technology company Materialise's new software is designed to automate 3D printing preparation.

3D technology company Materialise has introduced its new Dental Module for Magics software, which is designed to allow dental labs to fully and automate their 3D printing preparation workflow for dental applications. With dentistry becoming more digitalized, Dental Module provides dental labs with the easy-to-use tools required to ensure a scalable 3D printing process.

Once dental CAD designs are uploaded, the Dental Module software automates all of the required printing preparation steps, such as labeling, nesting, and generating support structures. It is said to reduce task completion from hours to mere minutes. The module also provides advanced control over processing steps through customizable processing profiles. Users can take advantage of these capabilities to further refine automatically generated results or process applications not supported by the Dental Module in a tailored manner, if necessary.

As a leader in 3D printing software solutions, Materialise helps customers within a wide range of industries optimize their additive manufacturing activities. After this newest addition, there are now ten modules available for Magics users. Dental Module joins a line-up of solutions that offer automated printing preparation tasks such as support generation and 3D nesting.
