Materialise and Structo Launch Structo PrintWorks

Leuven, Belgium – January 20, 2016. Materialise NV (NASDAQ: MTLS), a leading provider of Additive Manufacturing software and sophisticated 3D printing solutions, and Structo Pte. Ltd., a Singapore-based manufacturer of 3D printing machines, are proud to announce the launch of Structo PrintWorks, a customized Build Processor for Structo’s Stereolithography printers.

Structo manufactures industrial-grade 3D printing machines that rely on the company’s unique patented Liquid Crystal Dynamic Mask Stereolithography (MSLA) technology. This allows all of their printers to be incredibly fast. Structo’s three printing machines, the all-round high-capacity RapidForm, the dental-focused OrthoForm and the versatile OmniForm printer, are now all equipped with customized Materialise software.

The Structo PrintWorks software allows users to edit and analyze files easily and intuitively. The advanced support generation is fully automated. Users can apply different build strategies depending on the geometry of the part, and rely on Materialise’s state-of-the-art slicing software. In addition to the Structo PrintWorks software, Structo printers can be upgraded with Materialise’s versatile data preparation software Magics. This means that users have access to advanced repair, editing and support generation tools to prepare their designs quickly and accurately for 3D printing.

“We find that Magics and the accompanying Structo PrintWorks software, developed by Materialise, are world-class software products. Together, they offer the most advanced features and smooth workflow to give our customers the best possible user experience in going through file fixing, support generation and pre-print processing,” explains Huub van Esbroeck, founder of Structo. “Through this partnership, we are able to deeply integrate Materialise software with our hardware and offer the best-in-class turnkey solution for ultra-rapid prototyping.”

Materialise and Structo will be exhibiting together at Inside 3D Printing Singapore. During this event, visitors can find out more about Structo’s signature fast and high-quality 3D printing machines and Materialise’s industry-leading software backbone. Structo and Materialise will also launch their Structo PrintWorks software that facilitates the 3D printing process for users of Structo 3D printers.
