Magics SmartSpace software proves to reduce SLS build volume with about 80%

Materialise NV : 26 May, 2006  (New Product)
Materialise' SmartSpace software has clearly proven its capability in an independent test executed by Saddleback College, California. The Saddleback College compared the 3D nesting performance of the Magics RP software and the 3D Systems LS software for Laser Sintering. The results show that SmartSpace enables its users to build more parts in a single machine run and consequently save a lot of money and time.

The Saddleback College compared the 3D nesting performance of the Magics RP software and the 3D Systems LS software for Laser Sintering. The results show that SmartSpace enables its users to build more parts in a single machine run and consequently save a lot of money and time.

Saddleback tested SmartSpace software on the Sinterstation HiQ (381x330x457 mm) and the Sinterstation Pro (550x550x460 mm) platform, to see how they could get the most out of their 3D Systems machine. The files were first nested with the LS software and then with Magics RP software. The lower the height of the build, the more time and material would be saved. The smaller the build volume, the more capacity would be created on a single machine.

The results were astonishing: Magics SmartSpace advanced 3D geometry nesting technology packs more parts on the platform and reduces build height and time compared to the standard machine software. In this case Magics seemed to have a better use of the XY platform. Magics RP saved approximately 100 mm of build height and reduced approximately 80% on build volume.

SmartSpace automatically lowers
the build height to its absolute mini-
mum, thus saving time and material
