Netfabb Standard1-Year Subscription Renewal includes efficient build preparation capabilities alongside tools for optimizing designs for additive manufacturing, simulating metal
additive processes, and planning for CNC post-processing.
What's New in Netfabb 2019.1
Improved skin generation for clean hollowing of models.
Tetrehedral mesh export to simplify validation workflows in external simulation packages.
Improved usability with drag & drop functionality of bodies between components.
Direct push from Optimization Utility: Edit nodes and beams of FEA optimized lattices in Lattice Commander
Bridging the gap from design to manufacturing is one way we hope to make your jobs a little easier.
With the latest Netfabb, you are presented with a new UI ribbon that should be more intuitive for those of you working in CAD,
plus you will see the familiar view cube and in-canvas manipulators. Don't love change? That's okay too.
Upon launch of Netfabb, you have the opportunity to revert back to the traditional menu you already know.
Lua scripting available in Netfabb Ultimate can be a life saver for those repetitive tasks.
Now with the latest Netfabb, you will find new scripts for Lane Packing and Multi-Tray Packing.
Many Netfabb releases include new machine workspaces and the latest version is no exception.
You will now find that Netfabb can control all Arcam machines, that workspaces for all existing SLM Solutions machines
have been updated, and workspaces have been added for the newest models: SLM 280.2 and SLM 800.
New workspaces have also been introduced for the Xact metal XM200C and XM200S and the Sinterit Pro Lisa.
Netfabb has integrated workspaces for over 100 machines, for every AM process
A lot of validation and testing goes into Netfabb simulation with the goal of successful metal additive prints the first time.
Netfabb introduces a few new updates to help:
New material-based heat loss approximation. Previously you could choose between general heat loss approximation
or material-specific heat loss approximation.
This new simulation applies a material specific coefficient to give you increased accuracy without taking the
time to model and mesh your powder.
Global Recoater Status Results: A new simulation type, you can now view results for recoater blade interference
across the complete model in cases where recoater interference exists on multiple Z-heights
DED results viewing: Quickly jump to relevant results to save time post-processing DED simulations with the
option to quickly change visualized results by Z-height, layer, time or result increment
Cloud simulation improvements: Cloud simulation was introduced earlier this year and now improvements have been made
for cloud-based distortion compensation, faster cloud calculations and reduced results wait time.
