      3D printing software from design to manufacture

      Fusion 360 with Netfabb® software—available as a Premium or Ultimate version, as well as Netfabb Local Simulation—includes efficient build preparation capabilities alongside tools for optimizing designs for additive manufacturing and simulating metal additive processes.

      Build preparation

      • Video: Import, analyze, and repair models

        Import, analyze, and repair models

        Import models from a variety of CAD formats and use repair tools to quickly correct errors. (video: 3 min.)

      • Video: Netfabb helps improve the manufacturability of parts to reduce build time and improve the surface finish

        Modify models for production

        Make your models production ready by adjusting wall thicknesses, smoothing rough areas, and more. (video: 2:26 min.)

      • Video: Netfabb automatically generates support geometries only when they’re necessary, reducing volume and material used

        Configurable build supports

        Identify areas that require support and use semi-automated tools to generate support structures. (video: 1:47 min.)

      • 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.

      • Automation


        Automate common preparation tasks including import, analysis, repair, packing, slicing, and tool pathing.

      Design optimization for additive manufacturing

      • 3D part with optimization utility dialog

        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.

      • User interface in Netfabb registering the stress being placed on a lattice design

        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.

      Machine integration

      • 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.

      Netfabb local simulation capabilities

      Predict the thermomechanical response of additive parts during the metal powder bed fusion and directed energy deposition manufacturing processes.

      • Laser powder bed additive manufacturing

        Metal powder bed fusion

        Use multiscale modeling to predict the thermal and mechanical response of parts and help reduce build failures.

      • Directed energy deposition

        Simulate full builds for both powder-fed and wire-fed DED processes with Netfabb local simulation.

      • Fast, predictive simulation

        Adaptive meshing and the physics-based, multiscale approach help keep processing time low and accuracy high. (video: 1:07 min.)

      • Small-scale simulation

        Generate PRM files based on chosen material and process parameters for increased accuracy.

      • Part-scale simulation

        Simulate the additive manufacturing process for powder bed fusion to identify potential causes of build failures.

      • Simulate the entire build plate

        Capture interactions between parts and the distortion of the build plate.

      • Simulate stress relief

        Design appropriate heat treatment cycles by inputting the temperature vs. time curve of the desired process.

      • Detect recoater interference

        Identify possible build failures with powder bed processes that may cause equipment damage.

      • Avoid support failure

        Predict support failure to aid in the design and placement of support structures.

      • Predict part distortion

        Predict how metal additive manufacturing parts will deform to help reduce build failures.

      • Account for part/powder interaction

        Model the conduction of energy into the loose powder to increase your model’s accuracy.

      • Calculate residual stresses

        Accurately calculate residual stresses and strains built up during the AM process to identify likely regions of failure.

      • Simulate response after wire-cutting

        Simulate the mechanical response of a deposited part after removal from the build plate to calculate the final distortion.

      • Predict hot spots and lack of fusion

        Apply multiscale modeling to predict regions of a build that get too hot or not hot enough during processing.

      • Compensate for distortion

        Automatically compensate geometries based on simulation results to achieve the desired shape when printed.

      Simulation validation and research

      • Part/powder interaction

        Experimental data show improved accuracy with the explicit modeling of loose powder and the interaction between parts.

      • Manufactured component on left and simulation results of that manufactured component in Netfabb

        Support failure prediction

        Netfabb simulates the delamination of the part from the region where the support structure on a component experienced failure.
