From 3D model to successfully printed parts

  • Model import, repair and editing

    Edit and prepare models for manufacturing by adjusting wall thicknesses, smoothing rough areas and more. (video: 2.32 min.)

  • Design optimisation

    Use lattice and surface optimisation to create lightweight parts with performance characteristics suited to your specific application.

  • Additive manufacturing simulation

    Predict how metal additive manufactured parts will deform to help reduce build failures. (video: 37 sec.)

  • Automatic packing

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

What's new

  • Mesh to CAD (B-rep)

    Convert organic, free-form mesh files to boundary representation models making them available in CAD in STEP, SAT or IGES format.

  • Access to Netfabb simulation

    Get access to cloud-based metal powder bed fusion process simulation with Netfabb premium and ultimate for fast and accurate results.

  • New machine workspaces

    Integrated workspaces for over 100 machines for every AM process including EOS, SLM, HP, Farsoon, Formlabs and more.

  • Plan near net shapes

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

Which Netfabb product is right for you?

  • Netfabb Standard

    Quickly prepare models for additive manufacturing and 3D printing.

  • Netfabb Premium

    Minimise build failures with cloud simulation and optimise designs using latticing tools, build supports and automatic part packing.

  • Netfabb Ultimate

    Access local simulation abilities, draft custom toolpath strategies and automate common print preparation tasks.

  • NETFABB SIMULATION

    Simulate metal powder bed fusion and directed energy deposition additive processes.

Netfabb Simulation

Simulate metal powder bed fusion and directed energy deposition additive processes. Predict thermal history, residual stress and distortion of manufactured parts to reduce design time and development costs while improving part performance.

Cloud-based multi-scale simulation for metal powder bed processes is now available with Netfabb Simulation as well as Netfabb Premium and Ultimate.
