A wide variety of companies are now participating in the beta validation program of Materialise’s signature software package for data preparation.
Earlier this year, Materialise announced the launch of the Materialise Magics 3D Print Suite, combining the functionality of multiple software applications into one reliable backbone for the 3D printing industry. This suite allows multiple companies, including many Fortune 500 enterprises, to produce high-quality printed parts in a swift and controlled manner.
Now, Materialise is proud to announce the beta launch of Materialise Magics21, the core component of the suite. Materialise Magics is the industry-leading data preparation software for 3D Printing that allows users to convert, repair and edit files, as well as find an optimal position for their part on the build platform. Around 100 companies all over the world signed up for the beta validation program to already have access to the Materialise Magics21 beta version and test new and improved functionalities.
“It’s very exciting to work with this dedicated group of users who participate in the beta validation program. We deeply appreciate their commitment to share their valuable feedback with us and help ensure the quality of our software suite,” states Anca Fulger, project manager of the Magics Beta Validation Program. “Their input helps us to push our product forward, meeting the demands of a very large group of user profiles.”
The beta testers represent a very diverse audience indeed, coming from various industries (automotive to aerospace) and using a variety of 3D printing technologies (from plastic to metal sintering) and machine types (from laser to image and toolpath printers). They are spread all over the globe, which is why Materialise Magics will be available in eight languages as of this year.
“Both the product and the development team have made their very best efforts in the past months to ensure the release of a high-quality product. The new version will allow the user to take full control over the data preparation process” explains Gert Claes, product manager of Materialise Magics. “We find it essential to develop our software for and with our users, and are looking forward to receiving their feedback so we can bring a flawless, premium version to the market.”
