Materialise Magics21

Materialise Magics is a versatile, industry-leading data preparation and STL editor software for Additive Manufacturing that allows you to convert files to STL, repair errors, edit your design and prepare your build platform. Ready to prepare your model for 3D Printing?

Control your 3D printing process and part quality even better with the latest version of Materialise Magics. It has improved repair and marking functions and finding the ideal position for your part has never been so easy. In addition, Materialise Magics21 is the ideal data preparation software to create support structures for metal applications.

Tree Support Module

You want to make sure that your small and delicate 3D-printed items come out just the way you designed. This is where the Materialise Magics Tree Support Module comes in. Not only does tree support hold your object tightly in place during printing, but the trunks and branches also connect to each other, with only minimal contact to your print. This provides easy break-off points and reduces the time needed for post-build processing.

  • Improve the surface quality of metal prints

  • Prevent part deformation with enhanced heat conduction systems

  • Save time on finishing

  • Use trees to create inlets in your lost-wax mold

Support Generation (SG) Module

More than 25 years ago, Materialise started with just one Stereolithography machine. And from the very beginning, it was clear that intelligent software was needed that could deal with issues in the area of support. The Materialise Magics SG module was introduced as a solution, and today offers the most complete support generation toolbox for Stereolithography on the market.

  • Easily identify critical support areas

  • Reduce data preparation time with semi-automatic support generation

  • Create and optimize adequate structures for different types of geometry

  • Efficiently remove support and limit finishing time

  • Save building time and material with non-solid, single-line, optionally perforated supports

  • Stay in control of all of your parameters

  • Choose from a complete gallery of support structures

Support Generation Module for Metal (SG+)

In Additive Manufacturing for metal applications, support structures fulfill a larger purpose than just supporting a part during the build process. An optimal support generation for metal also minimizes deformation, prevents build crashes and reduces post-processing work.

The Magics SG+ Module offers you all the tools needed to find the optimal orientation of your part, the right type of support, good anchoring, heat transfer and more. With the guidance of the Magics SG+ Module, printing metal parts is no longer a big challenge.

  • Conduct heat and avoid deformation

  • Optimize part orientation

  • Recuperate powder

  • Reduce build failures with build validation tools

Structures Module

The Materialise Magics Structures Module is designed to help you reduce the weight and material usage in your designs. Whether you wish to hollow a part and fill it with a lightweight structure; convert a part to a lattice structure or create functional surfaces, the easy-to-use wizard in our Structures Module will guide you through every step of the way.

With hollowed designs, the Materialise Magics Structures Module enables you to add holes so that excess powder can be removed. The module features a structures library and can be used to alter structures to meet a variety of objectives, including saving powder, controlling the temperature, reinforcing your design and much more.

  • Lower your powder consumption and production costs

  • Add strength to the parts

  • Reduce distortion (due to the heat generated during the build process)

  • Create porous designs

  • Design your own unit cell structures to create a lattice structure

Sinter Module

To make your Laser Sintering business time-and cost-efficient, we developed the Materialise Magics Sinter Module.

The Magics Sinter Module is equipped with a powerful multi-core nesting algorithm that will automatically nest your parts in no time. With this algorithm, you can save approximately one hour for each build and thereby reduce your personnel costs by €5,000 (1h/build x 100 builds x €50/h) per year. To protect small and fragile parts, and easily retrieve them after building, you can build a crate around them with the Sinterbox function.


  • Nest parts quickly and automatically on multiple platforms

  • Control the build time, height and density

  • Avoid interlocking and colliding parts

  • Create protective crates

  • Re-nest from an existing configuration

  • Import Data Types and Formats
  • Repair Your Files
  • Prepare Your Build Platform
  • Raises the bar for labeling and part tracking
  • Generate Reports
  • Edit and Enhance Your Files
Tetrashell Module

Traditional metal investment casting is a long and risky process. Much time is lost during the tooling phase, a wrong assembly of the wax can cause an incorrect coating and the wax may sag during the investment phase. With Tetrashell by SOMOS®, all these risks fade away. Transform a solid CAD design into a robust, hollow STL model for any Stereolithography equipment worldwide.

On the one hand, the software facilitates and shortens the investment casting flow. On the other hand, it offers a cost-efficient and reliable way to produce strong lightweight parts. Tetrashell has a wide field of applications, ranging from aerospace, to electronics and orthopedics.

  • Prevent assembly errors

  • Shorten the design evaluation from months to days by eliminating the tooling phase

  • No longer invest in casting tools

  • Achieve best-in-class quality

  • Experience impressive user control
    And more

Import Module

Materialise Magics bridges the gap between CAD files and 3D printers by importing nearly all standard CAD formats, and packages such as SketchUp, SolidWorks or Rhino as well as traditional ones. With the Magics Base License, you can import more than 15 CAD file formats. If you want to convert an even wider range of file formats to STL, the Materialise Magics Import Module is what you need.
