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. (video: 2:35 min.)
Modify models for production
Make your models production ready by adjusting wall thicknesses, smoothing rough areas, and more. (video: 2:36 min.)
Configurable build supports
Identify areas that require support and use semi-automated tools to generate support structures. (video: 2:22 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.
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 manufacturing
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 (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.
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.
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.
Flexible subscription options available. Includes support and more.
