MiniMagics2 Released

Materialise has released a new version of their MiniMagics software, which is used for management of STL files. What can it do? Here's a short list:
 
  • Import and save .STL, .magics or .mgx files
  • Compress STL files up to factor 20
  • View parts and rotate, pan or zoom
  • Detect bad edges and flipped triangles
  • Make a section
  • Request part information, such as XYZ measurements, volume, surface area or number of bad edges
  • Measure parts
  • Add text annotations
  • Create a print-out of parts 
 
The new version includes features to enable more precise measurements using points, circles and planes, additional viewing options and a "silent server installation option" for sites with locked-down computers. 
Did we say that this software is free (with registration)? It's available in English, German and Japanese versions, but only runs on Windows platforms.
