Benefits

A multitasking software that reduces the amount of time and maximises build preparation, allowing you the benefits of multiple software in one.

Features

Build preparation

  1. Import models from a variety of CAD formats, analyze and repair quickly correct error
  2. Modify models by adjusting wall thicknesses, smoothing rough areas, and more for production and configurable build supports
  3. Convert organic, free-form mesh files to boundary representation models
  4. Use 2D and 3D packing algorithms to optimally place parts within the build volume.
  5. Create custom reports that include critical information for manufacturing and quoting
  6. define toolpath parameters for maximum surface quality, part density, and speed.

Design optimization for 3D Printing

  1. Through Internal lattice structures create lightweight parts with performance characteristics specific to your application.
  2. Topology optimization
  3. Integrated performance analysis
  4. Automatically verify and optimize lattice and skin elements to meet load requirements and reduce weight.

Netfabb Simulation Capabilities

  1. Use multiscale modeling to predict the thermal and mechanical response of parts and help reduce build failures of Metal Powder Bed Fusion
  2. Simulate full builds for both powder-fed and wire-fed DED processes with Netfabb local simulation.
  3. Part-scale simulation for powder bed fusion to identify potential causes of build failures.
  4. Generate PRM files based on chosen material and process parameters for increased accuracy through Small scale simulation
  5. Simulate the entire build plate and stress relief
  6. Predict hot spots and lack of fusion
  7. Avoid support failure
  8. Predict and compensate part distortion

The Imaginarium Difference

Imaginarium is India's leading Rapid Manufacturing & Engineering Solution Provider. Headquartered in Mumbai, India - Imaginarium’s 300 strong team has over a decade of experience. With 15+ years of experience and being users first, we're always looking out for the latest technology and are excited to adopt them and apply it to our manufacturing processes.
Having used Autodesk softwares for years, we understand how it helps in streamlining workflows, reducing build errors, Shorten production times and reduce manufacturing costs.

“If we didn’t have Netfabb to automate a large portion of the file preparation process, each build would be substantially more time consuming and labor intensive.”
