Import common file formats
Batch import and repair
Solid model workflow
Automatic mesh repair
Semi-automatic mesh repair
Manual mesh repair
Cloud project collaboration
Mesh to CAD (B-rep) export
Import common CAD formats, such as SolidWorks®, Catia®, NX®, Inventor®, Fusion 360® and more; as well as common 3D file and slice formats.
Load solid models of CAD files and retessellate as needed to the appropriate level of detail for the task at hand
Run pre-defined or custom repair scripts that correct the most common mesh errors
Perform specific repair operations to the entire part or to a selection of triangles, surfaces, shells or edges
Use a variety of mesh repair tools to manually add, remove or adjust mesh triangles, nodes and edges
Share Netfabb projects with stakeholders anywhere using A360 cloud-based project storage
Convert organic, free-form mesh files to boundary representation models
Add multiple files to your project simultaneously and perform automatic repair during import
Part and platform statistics
Part level analysis
Live collision detection
Easily access mesh statistics, part sizes and volumes, and platform capacity and utilisation
Calculate and view upskins/downskins, centre of gravity, wall thicknesses, shadow areas and support volumes
Create measurements of lengths, thicknesses and angles on and between parts that update with model changes
Compare distances between meshes to check models after remeshing, scaling or corrective deformation
Check if two or more parts in the project touch each other and quickly identify where collisions are occurring
Identify where parts may be interlocked after manual and automatic packing steps
Ensure easy platform unloading by identifying where parts may obstruct each other vertically
Aggregate part and platform analysis information in customisable templates for use in estimates, quoting or production planning
Pins and holes
Mirror and scale
Split or extract shells
Texture and colours
Cut parts using standard or custom planes or freeform polygon shapes with custom edge profiles
Add pins and holes or hooks while cutting to aid re-assembly of split parts
Create mirrored copies of parts or scale components using scale factor, scale percentage or target size
For parts that contain multiple shells, split them all into multiple parts or extract selected shells manually
Manipulate meshes directly with smoothing, extrusion, distortion, boolean or shearing operations
Mark parts for specific machines to simulate painting or to send parts to a printer that can produce the colours
Add text, shield or image labels manually or automatically create multiple parts with labels at once
Create hollow parts using a variety of options to define the offset shell surface
Move, rotate and align
Automatic 3D packing
Calculate the best orientation and preview supports with user-defined parameters and custom rankings
Pack parts on the 2D platform, automatically grouped according to their shapes to avoid collisions
Create packages of small parts to avoid losing them in the build space
Densely pack parts within the entire build volume with the option to setup custom no-build zones
Detect recoater interference*
Predict build support failures*
* Simulation abilities require the additional subscription of Netfabb Local Simulation or the use of Autodesk cloud credits to access cloud solving.
Predicts how metal additive manufactured parts will deform so that designs can be compensated.
Helps eliminate re-coater damage, which causes expensive downtime and manufacturing delays.
Predict support failure, helping part designers and manufacturing engineers to optimise the support designs.
Flexible subscription options available. Includes support and more.
