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.
View features by release
Import models from a variety of CAD formats and use repair tools to quickly correct errors. (video: 2:35 min.)
Make your models production ready by adjusting wall thicknesses, smoothing rough areas, and more. (video: 2:36 min.)
Identify areas that require support and use semi-automated tools to generate support structures. (video: 2:22 min.)
Use 2D and 3D packing algorithms to optimally place parts within the build volume. (video: 1:20 min.)
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.
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.
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.
Fill solid volumes with standard or custom structures to create unique material properties for your part.
Use multiscale modeling to quickly predict the thermal and mechanical response of parts and help reduce build failures. (video: 1:06 min.)
Capture interactions between parts and the distortion of the build plate. (video: 0:27 sec.)
Automatically compensate geometries based on simulation results to achieve the desired shape when printed.
Identify possible build failures with powder bed processes that may cause equipment damage. (video: 0:41 sec.)
Apply thermomechanical modeling to large geometries designed for additive manufacturing.
Predict how metal additive manufacturing parts will deform to help reduce build failures.
Predict support failure to aid in the design and placement of support structures.
New | Account for part-powder interaction
Model conduction of energy into the loose powder for increased model accuracy.
New | Solve locally or in the cloud
Simulation capabilities require an additional subscription to Netfabb Local Simulation or the use of cloud solve.
Plan and model the near net shape for metal additive manufacturing processes using PowerShape technology.
Export near net shapes directly to PowerMill to generate CNC toolpaths for post-processing.
Select from the most popular additive manufacturing machines to configure the Netfabb workspace to your process.
New | Collaborative multi-head 3D printing
Intelligently distribute toolpaths between multiple print heads working in unison on a single printer.
Netfabb works with a range of OEMs to create integrated printing experiences configured for specific machines.
