Why Choose the Materialise Magics Structures Module
The Materialise Magics Structures Module enables you to transfer a solid 3D model into a lightweight version. A lattice structure can be applied to reduce the weight of the design or reinforce it. Have a look at these four reasons why to choose the Structures Module.
1. Save Powder
Once you have created a hollowed design, you can add draining holes so that excess powder can be removed, leading to lower powder consumption and production costs.
2. Keep the Temperature Under Control
Since a model with structures requires less scanning, the generated heat can be kept under control and distortion during the build can be reduced.
3. Enhance Your Design
- Keep your model’s design intact, while reducing its weight.
- Create porous designs for bone and tissue in-growth.
4. Freedom of Design
Use the module’s structures library or design your own unit cell structures to create lattices.
