Highly Advanced STL Manipulation with Magics 8 from Materialise

Leuven, Belgium, October 17, 2002 – Materialise, industry leading developer of Rapid Prototyping and Rapid Tooling software, presents Magics 8. Materialise has sped up the manipulation, editing and fixing of STL files by developing a variety of advanced, intelligent algorithms. These algorithms are especially designed to boost efficiency and productivity. The result is the addition of a wide range of powerful new tools to the Magics software.

Self-intersections (intersecting triangles or surfaces within one part) can easily be removed with the brand new 'Unify' tool. 'Unify' is very useful for post-processing offset and Z-compensation. Magics' other novel features for repairing functionality include a 'small triangle remover' and an improved 'fill all holes' function. You'll save the time and hassle of fixing files yourself after importing them with Magics' new fixing algorithms. These algorithms correct defective 3D CAD files automatically before they are converted into STL files.

Would you like to smooth only a selection of triangles or perform a triangle reduction on a single surface while the rest of the part remains detailed and unchanged? Local smoothing and local triangle reduction makes it possible from now on.

What if parts are too large for the machine? What if it would be easier to build the part into separate pieces? Magics offers the perfect solution through its cutting functionality, with the increased flexibility of its two new cutting options. Use the 'cylinder cut' when you need to cut a cylinder or circle shaped piece from the part. The 'profile cut' is especially designed to ensure a strong assemblage of the cut parts. The teeth of this 'profile cut' can be defined parametrically, allowing you to adapt them perfectly to your needs.

It can't be denied… Magics 8 proves its worth as a major update as it provides a lot of added value for professional users.
