3D Systems to offer Magics software with its SLA and SLS systems

Materialise NV : 23 May, 2006  (New Product)
3D Systems Corporation, prototyping and manufacturing solutions, and Materialise, one of the drivers in software development for rapid prototyping and manufacturing, have entered into a worldwide distribution agreement that covers the Magics product line. Under terms of the agreement, Magics, Materialise's specialized software for rapid prototyping work preparation and STL manipulation, will be offered with 3D Systems' stereolithography and selective laser sintering systems.
Materialise's cutting-edge Magics software offers fast and easy-to-use solutions for rapid prototyping and manufacturing processes. Over the years, the software has grown into a common platform for the rapid prototyping community.
Magics is indispensable software for the rapid prototyping process. Cutting parts to fit on the build platform, hollowing models to save material and build time, Z compensation, labeling, automated three-dimensional geometry nesting that minimizes build height and time… it's all in there.

'We are proud to team up with 3D Systems, the company that invented our industry. This industry is now in transition from a prototype phase to maturity in manufacturing,' comments Wilfried Vancraen, Materialise's CEO. 'We feel confident that the increasing group of professional 3D Systems' users will appreciate the effectiveness, reliability and productivity that Magics brings them. Cost-effective manufacturing of 3D models requires the integration of manufacturing systems with qualified logistical and data handling systems, which Materialise pioneered 15 years ago and continues to develop.'

Magics' suite of integrated software tools provides an important part of a total solution for 3D Systems' SLA and SLS systems customers. The availability and seamless integration of complementary tools helps 3D Systems' advanced users take full advantage of the exceptional part quality, high throughput, and broad range of materials' availability with 3D Systems' SLA and SLS product lines, including the new, state-of-the-art Viper Pro SLA and Sinterstation Pro SLS systems.

'We are pleased to work with an innovative and experienced software company like Materialise, a true industry pioneer and partner that has been providing exceptional software products for our growing family of rapid prototyping and rapid manufacturing customers for many years,' said Abe Reichental, president and CEO of 3D Systems. 'Teaming up with complementary solutions' providers like Materialise demonstrates our strong commitment to expanding the range of our products and services and to delivering to our customers economical rapid manufacturing solutions that improve their bottom line and enhance their competitive position.'
