A great design for Additive Manufacturing usually starts with a CAD design, a topology optimised model, a simulation, or scanned data as input. To benefit from the possibilities that 3D Printing offers, you need a versatile tool to make design modifications on the mesh level.
With Materialise 3-matic, you can clean up rough data for simulation or convert your mesh back to CAD. In addition, it allows you to enhance your design by creating 3D textures, lattice structures, and conformal structures, ready for Additive Manufacturing.
Why Choose Materialise 3-matic
Experience Unprecedented Freedom of Design
With our design optimization software, you can fully personalize your products and create models that were impossible to produce with traditional manufacturing methods.
Save Time and Costs with Lattice Structures
Materialise 3-matic allows you to create stunning lattice designs, leading to lower material costs and less printing time. These optimized lattices outperform solid blocks of material in numerous ways.
Master Part Properties
Master the physical properties of your part. Change aerodynamic, acoustic and cushioning properties or characteristics, increase grip or control the density of your part with porous structures.
Rely on a Complete Platform
Materialise 3-matic is integrated with Materialise Magics and other solutions from our extensive software suite.
Features of Materialise 3-Matic
Textures, Patterns and Perforations
With the Texturing Module, you can directly apply textures, perforations, and patterns to complex 3D shapes within an STL file. Textures provide extra value to you Additive Manufacturing projects by adding functionality or an aesthetic dimension.
Lattice, Conformal and Porous Structures
The Lattice Module allows you to create directly printable internal and external structures that add extra strength, provide cushioning, increase porosity, or simply reduce the weight of your design.
Convert Mesh to CAD
Easily convert your mesh file to a CAD file format with the Materialise 3-matic CAD Link Module. The conversion will recognise the analytical shapes in your part and generates a fully parametric file without having to design from scratch.
Materialise 3-matic is a 3D modeling software program that enables design optimisation and modification on mesh level, using CAD designs, scanned data and topology optimised models as a starting point.
Materialise 3-matic lets you redesign rough surfaces outputted by topology optimisation. This prevents complicated freedom modeling work when moving to CAD, as well as more complexity and possible stress concentrations for FEA.
