Fusion 360 with Netfabb: Software for additive manufacturing, design and simulation

What you can do with Netfabb

Streamline your workflows for additive manufacturing

  • Import models, analyse for printability and automatically repair for manufacturing.
  • Choose from a growing library of 200+ integrated 3D printers and prepare prints through slicing and customisable toolpath creation.
  • Orient your models to reduce build times, minimise supports or nest parts efficiently.
  • Hollow parts and generate internal lattices to use less material.

Gain competitive advantage through automated processes

  • Automate manual additive manufacturing workflows with scripting to reduce human error.
  • Identify and compensate for possible build errors through process simulation for Directed Energy Deposition (DED) and metal Powder Bed Fusion (PBF).
  • Generate high-performing design alternatives that use compliant lattice structures with Optimisation Utility for Netfabb.
