Materialise Anniversary Present

Date: Wed Jun 28 2000 - 19:24:36 EEST

> 10 years ago, on June 28th , Materialise was founded as a Rapid
> Prototyping service bureau with an SLA 250.
> A lot of trouble to get good data forced Materialise to develop software
> solutions for Rapid Prototyping just a few weeks after the first machine
> had been installed. Since those early days their experience and
> development efforts have been growing steadily, every year without
> interruption, despite the ups and downs of the industry ...
> Today, Materialise has the largest software development team of the RP
> sector and the Magics software has become the cornerstone of data
> manipulation for many RP users around the world.
> To thank everybody for those years of trust and cooperation, the company
> offers a new and interesting software tool to all its customers and anyone
> in the rapid prototyping sector who is interested:
> the STLzip software.
> Starting from the 28th of June, STLzip can be downloaded as FREEware from
> the Materialise Software website.
> STLzip: fast, efficient and free!
> STLzip is a new generation of data compression software:
> * reduces STL files 10 to 20 times of the original file size.
> * compression rate 5 to 10 times higher than WinZIP.
> * fast STL transfer, saving on telephone costs, data storage media,
> time, ...
> * efficient STL back up.
> * can be extracted with Magics RP 5.3 or higher.
> * can be viewed with Magics Communicator 1.4.
> is freely available.
