Release 1.2 of Materialise’s EOS sintering package links forms an interface between the file fixing tools of Magics and the 3D Printer


The latest update of Materialise’s platform, which acts as an interface between EOS 3D printers and Materialise’s STL editor and build preparation software, Magics, has been launched.

The EOS Build Processor looks to simplifies the workflow from 3D design to laser sintering production of parts for EOS users, allowing them to import an STL file or a CAD file directly into the Magics software.

In Magics they can edit, manipulate and enhance files, as well as prepare the build platform with the final file being read directly by the EOS machines and sliced according to build and machine parameters.

The controlled addition of bubbles to injection moulded parts - like in a chocolate bar - can now be simulated in MuCell, reducing part weight while retaining structural strength

Inspired by the honeycomb structure of a chocolate bar, Moldex3D reports that its customers are using its MuCell technology to produce lighter parts by introducing gas bubbles into plastic parts as they are moulded.

Now MuCell’s simulation feature can help users achieve targeted weight reduction before actual manufacturing, reducing effort of testing different injection moulding ‘VP switch-over points’.

One of the strengths of this technology is that it lets users achieve a lightweight design without compromising too much on the mechanical strength of the part.

Kenesto has launched its own cloud drive - with free and paid options

Two new packaged solutions from Kenestohave been designed to address the requirements of engineering use-cases and workflows often missing from consumer based cloud storage and file sharing tools.

According to Kenesto, users wanting features including viewing 2D and 3D designs in a browser; automatic file synchronisation across desktop, web, and mobile platforms; version and permission control across project teams; and an ability to lock files for editing, can sometimes be without these abilities.

The new packaged solutions offer users a choice between a free and paid version, with Kenesto’s virtual cloud drive, Kenesto Drive, which automatically maintains desktop files and documents synchronised with Kenesto’s web browser app, is included in both.
