AM preparation with Magics Fix and Enhance and Prepare the Print better Import files prepare files edit data platform partsImport nearly all Create waterthight Add logos, series Duplicate parts View slicesfile formats and data numbers, etc Orient parts Detect collisionsnative color Correct problems Apply textures Define no-build Save platformsinformation Create short-cuts Perform boolean zones Generate reports to suit your workflow operations in a user-friendly Hollow parts interface Perform cuts, ... Magics AutoFab Suite is the ideal solution for professional users of additive metal melting processes.
AM preparation with Magics• Examples: • Fixing • Cutting • Structures • Sintermodule • FormFit • Trapped Volumes 19
AM preparation with Magics: Magics SintermoduleSave money by optimizing your builds Lower your powder consumption and production costs Save money by reducing data preparation time Increase nest density and pack more parts in same build enveloppe
AM preparation with Magics: Magics Sintermodule - Powder SavingsPowder savings based on nest density increase from 6% to 7%Nest density 6% Nest density 7%Height 148 mm Height 126 mm 21

e-Stage: Automatic SupportGeneration for Stereolithography 24
e-Stage: What is e-Stage?what: single button solution for intelligent & automated support generationaim: optimize support for your application
Which benefits does e-Stage bring to you?• e-Stage reduces lead time and improves quality in several steps of the process 1. Minimize Lead Time and Cost: • Very strong reduction of support design time • Saving resin and build time • Strong reduction of support removal time 2. Reliable Quality: • Support generation is repeatable and traceable • Less build failures and improved part quality • Minimal surface contact preserves surface integrity 26
Impact of e-Stage at Materialise and customers• At Materialise about 99% of SLA parts are made with e-Stage supports!• e-Stage works with annual licenses • Until now, ALL customers have renewed the licenses every year! 27
