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 builds supports
Identify areas that require support and semi-automated tools to generate support structures.
Use 2D and 3D packing algorithms to optimally place parts within the build volume.
Create custom reports that include critical information for manufacturing and quoting.
Develop build strategies and define toolpath parameters for maximum surface quality, part density, and speed.
Design optimization for additive manfuacturing
Internal lattice structures
Create lightweight parts with performance characteristics specific to your application.
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
Automatically verify and optimize lattice and skin elements to meet load requirements and reduce weight.
Selective space structures
Fill solid volumes with standard or custom structures to create unique material properties for your part.
Metal process simulation and hybrid manufacturing
Fast, predictive simulation
Use multiscale modeling to quickly predict the thermal and mechanical response of parts and help reduce build failures.
Simulate the entire build plate
Capture interactions between parts and the distortion of the build plate.
Produce compensated pre-forms
Automatically compensate geometries based on simulation results to achieve the desired shape when printed.
Detect recoater interference
Identify possible build failures with powder bed processes that may cause equipment damage.
Simulate complex parts
Apply thermomechanical modeling to large geometries designed for additive manufacturing.
Predict part distortion
Predict how metal additive manufacturing parts will deform to help reduce build failures.
Avoid support failure
Predict support failure to aid in the design and placement of support structures.
Account for part-powder interaction
Model conduction of energy into the loose powder for increased model accuracy.
Solve locally or in the cloud
Simulation capabilities require an additional subscription to Netfabb Local Simulation or the use of cloud solve.
Near net shape planning
Plan and model the near net shape for metal additive manufacturing processes using PowerShape technology.
Export to PowerMill
Export near net shapes directly to PowerMill to generate CNC toolpaths for post-processing.
Integrated print engines
Select from the most popular additive manufacturing machines to configure the Netfabb workspace to your process.
Collaborative multi-head 3D printing
Intelligently distribute toolpaths between multiple print heads working in unison on a single printer.
Solutions for machine manufacturers
Netfabb works with a range of OEMs to create integrated printing experiences configured for specific machines.
