A great design most commonly starts with the use of a CAD package or scanned data. However, the closer you get to the actual production, the more you need a flexible tool to make design modifications on the STL level.
This is where 3-matic comes into play. 3-matic offers design modification, design simplification, 3D texturing, remeshing, forward engineering, and much more, and all on an STL level. 3-matic bundles the most powerful STL functions in the industry. With the 3-matic functions you can, for example: efficiently change your design so that it can be tested in a wind tunnel; prepare your data for a quick and efficient finite element analysis; investigate the look and feel of new 3D textures; design or repair missing or badly scanned components. The possibilities are endless.
Moreover, Additive Manufacturing offers almost limitless freedom to designers, including the ability to produce lightweight components. This is a freedom that 3-matic, unlike traditional CAD packages, can support, enabling you to fully benefit from the possibilities of AM technology.
3-matic drastically reduces product development cycles and is, as always, supported by our international team of experts and engineers.
