Materialise and Structo Launch New Structo PrintWorks Build Processor

by • January 19, 2016 • No Comments

3dp_printworks_Materialise_logoBelgium-based 3D printing software developer and 3D printing services provider Materialise teamed up with Singapore-based SLA 3D printing device developer Structo to turn it into a dedicated create processor. The new PrintWorks create processor was made to work exclusively with the line of Stereolithography 3D printing devices made and manufactured by Structo. Their industrial-grade 3D printing devices use a patented Liquid Crystal Dynamic Mask Stereolithography (MSLA) innovation which increases the machines’ printing speed and accuracy. The customized PrintWorks software platform aims to assist Structo 3D printing device users of any talent level acquire the talent to prepare and process 3D versions rapidly and accurately preceding sending them to be printed and achieve the top level of performance out of their Structo 3D printing device.

The Structo PrintWorks software platform is fully integratable-bodied with the entire line of Structo 3D printing devices, which include the high-capacity, industrial-scale RapidForm which was made to contribute a multi-purpose machine with uses in multiple industries. It in addition works with the high-resolution OrthoForm printing device which was optimized for dental applications as well as the rapid prototyping-specific OmniForm printing device. In addition to being a few of the many rapidly SLA 3D printing devices on the market, Structo has in addition made their own line of high-performance, industrial-quality polymer materials made for a wide range of 3D printing applications which include dental, engineering and low-volume making.

3dp_rapidform_structo_bannerThe PrintWorks create processor made for Structo is the fifth printing device-specific software box customized by Materialise for an industrial 3D printing device developer. Because there is no standard communication process for 3D printing devices, many of them use software which is not optimized for their machines. The Materialise create processors were made to simplify the 3D printing process for industrial users and contribute a streamlined, printing device-specific experience by focvia on the printing devices strengths and removing extraneous or unnecessary functionality. Materialise has previously turn it intod custom create processors for Arcam, EOS, Renishaw and SLM Solutions.

Materialise made the PrintWorks software to contribute Structo users a whole range of new showcases and functionality without complex the printing process. Users can rapidly and intuitively analyze or edit 3D printing files and rapidly add autogenerated assist material. It in addition comes with Materialise’s state-of-the-art slicing software which allows for users to preview alternate create strategies in order to optimise material use, create time and part resolution based on the geometry and create requirements of the part.

PrintWorks can in addition allow any of the Structo printing devices to be upgraded to include seamless integration of the Materialise Magics 3D printing software. Magics contributes a wide range of 3D printing enhancements, which include effortless version repair, high end editing and assist generation tools, the talent to 3D print parts in virtually any version format and swift version editing capabilities. Users can easily add textures, generate lattice structures, rapidly cut or hollow out parts and add serial numbers or logos.

3dp_printworks_structo_logo“We find which Magics and the accompanying Structo PrintWorks software, made by Materialise, are world-class software products. Together, they contribute the many high end showcases and smooth workflow to donate our customers the most possible user experience in going through file fixing, assist generation and pre-print processing. Through this partnership, we are able-bodied to deeply integrate Materialise software with our hardware and contribute the most-in-class turnkey solution for ultra-rapid prototyping,” explained founder of Structo Huub van Esbroeck.

Both Materialise and Structo can be exhibiting together and officially commence their Structo PrintWorks software for users of the Structo line of 3D printing devices at the next Inside 3D Printing Conference and Expo Singapore bringing place January 26th to the 27th. Visitors of the conference are encouraged to stop by their joined booth to find out additional of the swift and high-resolution Structo 3D printing devices and the industry-leading Materialise software.
