Materialise releases Magics²⁰

Materialise NV has released the new software, Magics²⁰. This latest version of their data and build preparation software introduces a new user interface and supports all current file formats, including voxels and .3MF. Magics20, combined with Materialise’s range of software solutions for AM that include an enterprise software solution (Streamics), a range of Build Processors, an Additive Manufacturing Control Platform (AMCP), and more, is a true software backbone for the AM industry.

Magics20 has been used in many of the projects and demonstration material Materialise had on display at formnext. Featured projects represent a range of industries, including aerospace, automotive, eyewear and more, with cases from Toyota, Adidas, Samsonite, Schunk, 328 Group, Hoet Design Studio and RS Print.

Materialise Founder and CEO, Fried Vancraen, had this to say about Magics20, “When I purchased my first stereolithography machine and started Materialise 25 years ago, the industry lacked the software needed to efficiently connect a design to a 3D Printer. In order to survive and thrive as a company, we needed to develop a solution that allowed us to meet customer demand for 3D printed prototypes, on time and as ordered. The resulting software worked so well that we brought it to the market as Magics. Over the years, Magics has helped lift the AM industry as a whole to new levels by optimizing data and build preparation for an expanding range of materials and technologies.”
