New release of Moldflow Magics STL ExpertTM 1.0, a product provided under license from Materialise NV

Materialise NV : 10 September, 2006  (New Product)
Moldflow Corporation, the world leader in process-wide solutions for optimizing the design and manufacture of plastic products, today announced the release of Moldflow Magics STL ExpertTM 1.0, a product provided under license from Materialise NV. The Moldflow Magics STL Expert stereolithography manipulation product is designed specifically for the needs of Moldflow's customers in the plastics injection molding industry and will be resold through Moldflow's worldwide sales channel.
Moldflow Magics STL Expert 1.0 is a powerful tool for viewing, measuring, correcting and optimizing STL and solid surface models imported from popular 3D CAD/CAM systems in preparation for analysis using Moldflow's patented Dual DomainTM technology. Dual Domain analyses can use STL models as the starting geometry and Moldflow Magics STL Expert 1.0 can be used to quickly validate those STL models and resolve any identified problems prior to analyzing with Moldflow's design analysis solutions - Moldflow Plastics Advisers or Moldflow Plastics Insight.

Moldflow Magics STL Expert 1.0 also interfaces with Moldflow Design LinkTM (MDLTM) to import solid surface models and convert them to STL format, which can then be optimized for use with MPA and MPI. Key features include:
STL Fixing Wizard - The usage paradigm of this product is centered on an automatic STL fixing wizard that guides the user through a series of easy steps to refine and optimize STL models
Manual Fixing Tools - The automatic fixing wizard is complemented by numerous manual fixing tools
STL Optimization Tools - Two optimization tools that greatly improve the efficiency of MPA and MPI analyses:
Triangle Reduction - can be used to minimize the STL model size and complexity without any loss of accuracy
Remeshing - transforms STL model triangles characterized by irregular size and high aspect ratio to uniform size and low aspect ratio
Measuring Tools - Numerous measuring tools with built-in feature recognition can be used to measure thickness, distances, radii, diameters, angles and coordinates of various entities of the STL model
Editing Tools - Allow for the translation, reorientation and scaling of the part model
Labeling Tools - Part dimensions, part information, various measurements and the coordinate system can all be labeled for on-screen display and hardcopy print
CAD interfaces - Moldflow Magics STL Expert 1.0 interfaces with Moldflow Design Link 5.0 to allow the direct import of native Parasolid, Pro/ENGINEER, SolidWorks, CATIA V5 and standard STEP part models

'We are very pleased with Materialise NV for the quick turn-around in developing this product. We expect it to positively impact the productivity of the vast majority of our design analysis customers that use STL models,' commented Ken Welch, executive vice president and general manager of Moldflow's design analysis solutions business unit.
