Software Materialise

Materialise is a leader in Additive Manufacturing (also known as 3D Printing) and our aim is a better and healthier world.

Materialise is helping bring great ideas to life. We work with others to put great products aimed at niche markets directly into the marketplace as well as helping make the prototypes of products later manufactured by the millions. What’s more, through our software, we enable others to do the same with their own AM equipment and services.

Magics, the most powerful STL editor

Magics, a user-friendly data preparation software package and STL editor, can guide you through every step of your RP or AM workflow:

1. Import FIles

With Magics, you can import nearly all file formats and native color information, and stay in control of your original data.

2. Fix and Prepare STL Files

The STL editor in Magics allows you to correct problems, as well as create watertight data and shortcuts to suit your workflow. And all in a user-friendly interface. File fixing includes repair of flipped or broken triangles, bad edges, holes and other defects in your stl files.

3. Enhance and Edit Data

With the Magics STL editor, you can also take your designs to the next level: add logos, serial numbers, and hollow parts; apply textures; and perform Boolean operations and advanced cuts.

4. Prepare the Platform

Magics has the tools you need to duplicate parts, orient parts in an ideal way, and create no-build zones.

5. Print Better Parts

Magics ensures you print only the best parts. It allows you to view slices, detect collisions, save platforms, and generate useful reports.
