Features

3D printing software from design to manufacture

Autodesk® Netfabb® combines tools for lattice creation, topology optimisation, build preparation, metal process simulation, CNC machining workflow and machine export.

Build preparation

  • Import, analyse and repair models

    Import models from a variety of CAD formats and use repair tools to quickly correct errors. (video: 2.30 min.)

  • Modify models for production

    Make your models production ready by adjusting wall thicknesses, smoothing rough areas and more. (video: 2.32 min.)

  • Configurable build supports

    Identify areas that require support and use semi-automated tools to generate support structures. (video: 2:17 min.)

  • Automatic packing

    Use 2D and 3D packing algorithms to optimally place parts within the build volume. (video: 1.16 min.)

  • 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.

Design optimisation for additive manufacturing

  • Internal lattice structures

    Create lightweight parts with performance characteristics specific to your application.

  • New

    Topology optimisation

    Generate forms that are optimised for stiffness and weight, based on the loads and constraints of the part.

  • Integrated performance analysis

    Test how your optimised designs will perform using built-in Autodesk Nastran simulation.

  • Optimisation engine

    Automatically verify and optimise 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.

Metal process simulation and hybrid manufacturing

  • Predict deformation

    Predict how metal additive manufactured parts will deform to help reduce build failures. (video: 0.46 sec.)

  • Predict build support failure

    Predict support failure to aid in the design and optimisation of support structures. (video: 0.47 sec.)

  • Detect recoater interference

    Identify possible build failures with powder bed processes that may cause equipment damage. (video: 0.41 sec.)

  • New

    Near net shape planning

    Plan and model the near net shape for metal additive manufacturing processes using PowerShape technology.

  • New | Export to PowerMill

    Export near net shapes directly to Autodesk PowerMill to generate CNC toolpaths for post-processing.

  • New | Cloud solving option

    Use cloud-based simulation to get fast and accurate metal process simulation results.

Machine integration

  • Integrated print engines

    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.

  • Solutions for machine manufacturers

    Netfabb works with a range of OEMs to create integrated printing experiences configured for specific machines.
