Maximize Machine Utilization & Throughput

Utilise efficient build preparation capabilities alongside tools that optimize your additive manufacturing designs, simulates metal additive processes, and planning for CNC post-processing.

What is Netfabb?

Autodesk's Netfabb offers a complete toolset that streamlines workflows and reduces build errors.
This expert data preparation package is a comprehensive toolkit for additive manufacturing processes, right from CAD imports (SLC to STL) to planning your CAM build. Netfabb amalgamates design enhancement, file fixing, triangle reduction, smoothing, support generation, slicing and XY packing in one integrated software environment.

  • Maximize the number of parts you can fit into each build.
  • Work with customized supports, mesh repair, and improved workflows to optimize your production process.
  • Get more from your part build, no matter what machine is used.
  • 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.”

Sean Buxton

Senior Mechanical Engineer, Ximedica

"One of the most exciting things about the Form 3 is where the low force print process brings us in terms of print quality and finishing. We’re excited about how we can push the limits of, particularly really tiny features. I am amazed at the small details that show up in models. It's really impressive."
