3D printing software from design to manufacture
Netfabb® software includes efficient build preparation capabilities alongside tools for optimizing designs for additive manufacturing, simulating metal additive processes, and planning for CNC post-processing.
- Import, analyze, and repair models
Import models from a variety of CAD formats and use repair tools to quickly correct errors.
- Modify models for production
Make your models production ready by adjusting wall thicknesses, smoothing rough areas, and more.
- Configurable build supports
Identify areas that require support and use semi-automated tools to generate support structures.
- Mesh to CAD conversion
Convert organic, free-form mesh files to boundary representation models and make them available in CAD in STEP, SAT, or IGES format.
- Automatic packing
Use 2D and 3D packing algorithms to optimally place parts within the build volume.
- Report generation
Create custom reports that include critical information for manufacturing and quoting.
- Advanced toolpaths
Develop build strategies and define toolpath parameters for maximum surface quality, part density, and speed.
Automate common preparation tasks including import, analysis, repair, packing, slicing, and tool pathing.
Design optimization for additive manufacturing:
- Internal lattice structures
Create lightweight parts with performance characteristics specific to your application.
- Topology optimization
Generate forms that are optimized for stiffness and weight, based on the loads and constraints of the part.
- Integrated performance analysis
Test how your optimized designs will perform using built-in Autodesk® Nastran® simulation.
- Optimization engine
Automatically verify and optimize lattice and skin elements to meet load requirements and reduce weight.
- Selective space structures (3S)
Fill solid volumes with standard or custom structures to create unique material properties for your part.
- Integrated print engines
Select from the most popular additive manufacturing machines to configure the Netfabb workspace to your process.
- Solutions for machine manufacturers
Netfabb works with a range of OEMs to create integrated printing experiences configured for specific machines.
