Why Magics 28?

Materialise Magics 28 introduces several new features and improvements to optimize the user experience and increase productivity in preparing parts for additive manufacturing.

Usability and User Interface

Dark theme: Magics 28 introduces a dark theme designed to reduce eye fatigue during prolonged use of the software, especially in dimly lit work environments.

UI/UX optimization: Import windows have been improved to provide a better overview of parameters, while the workspace has been expanded with the ability to minimize tool sheets.


Universal Lattice Module: The new lattice module integrates all the tools needed to create meshes, including traverse and slice-based meshes, enabling more efficient management without the need for additional software.

Slice-Based 3D Plots: This feature allows plots to be transformed into slice-based 3D plots, avoiding the creation of large mesh files and allowing quick cutting with the Materialise Build Processor or Slice Magics Module.

Improvements in Label Planning:

Significant performance improvements with reduced execution time and memory usage, making the labeling process more efficient.

Preparation of the Parties

Improvements in Cutting: New dialog boxes and elaborate tooltips improve the user experience by providing more precise control when cutting parts.

Contactless Media:

Introduction of hybrid supports that reduce the need for post-processing, improving the overall quality of the parts produced.

Advanced Features

CO-AM Integration: More options for opening and managing imported parts, allowing greater flexibility during import.

Advanced Nester: New features such as the Organic Sinterbox and 3D Nester window improve the nesting process, optimizing space utilization and better protecting parts during production.


Enhanced Media Generation: Includes features to preserve media during fitting, beveling and labeling operations, as well as options for manually cutting media to speed up workflow.

Materialise Magics 28 offers a wide range of enhancements that make the software more intuitive, efficient and powerful, adapting to the growing needs of the additive manufacturing industry.
