Materialise has extended its bespoke 3D printing solutions to encompass Structo, a Singapore-based manufacturer of 3D printing machines, with the launch of Structo PrintWorks, a customised build processor.
Structo’s Stereolithography printers are billed as industrial-grade 3D printing machines that rely on the company’s patented Liquid Crystal Dynamic Mask Stereolithography (MSLA) technology.
On paper, this allows all of Structo’s family of three 3D printers to be fast with the customised Materialise software looking to advance this even further.
Structo has three machines:
– RapidForm: its flag-ship high-speed, large volume industrial 3D printer that claims its entire 40L volume can be printed in less than 15 hours
– OrthoForm: a high-speed printer built for dental applications that can print up to 10 high res dental models in a reported 30 minutes
– OmniForm: a high-speed printer built for a range of applications for architects and product designers. Users of this printer can print objects up to 350mm tall.
The Structo PrintWorks software aims to help users edit and analyse files easily for all three machines, with support generation fully automated.
In addition to the Structo PrintWorks software, Materialise points out that Structo printers can also be used with Materialise’s data preparation software Magics for advanced repair, editing and support generation tools.
