Boston Micro Fabrication Announces Partnership with Materialise
Delivering a first-class 3D file editing solution for BMF customers, Magics Print for BMF
Boston Micro Fabrication (BMF), the pioneer in microscale 3D printing systems, today announced a software partnership with Materialise, a global leader in 3D printing solutions. Magics Print for BMF offers a tailored, turnkey solution for build setup and data preparation for BMF’s Projection Micro Stereolithography (PμSL) micro-precision 3D printing systems from industry leader Materialise.
Magics Print for BMF has improved support structure generation, allowing for more support structure types and styles which are customized for the user’s unique geometries. The result is greater build success, even more accuracy, and a large reduction of overall preprocessing times.
Magics Print for BMF performs all software build preprocessing with one tool, including:
- STL File import
- Translate, Rotate, Scale parts
- Duplicate parts with arrays and orient parts using automatic placement
- Support structure generation with customizable profiles for Point, Line, Block, Cone and Tree support structures
- Creation of high-resolution build data (slices / layers) using the Magics Build Processor
“Today’s agreement will combine the strengths of our leading 3D file editing software with BMF’s powerful PµSL 3D printing technology,” said Karel Brans, Sr Market Director, Materialise. “This will help BMF’s customers achieve the highest level of precision and accuracy available on the market today.”
“We are thrilled to partner with Materialise to deliver a first-class importing, fixing and editing tool for 3D files to our customers. Magics Print for BMF will arm our customers with a smooth workflow to easily interface between 3D file generation and the microArch line of micro-precision 3D printers. Magics Print for BMF aligns with our goal to deliver the highest quality products to our customers,” said John Kawola, CEO of Global Operations, BMF.
