  • What is 3DXpert?

    3DXpert® supports every step of the AM workflow, from design to printing. You can streamline your AM process to transition quickly and efficiently from a 3D CAD model to a high-quality, 3D-printed part. 3DXpert is the best solution for the disruptive shift from rapid prototyping to serial AM production.

    • Streamlined workflow—from design to printing
    • CAD-based design for additive manufacturing (DfAM)
    • Unprecedented optimization for AM
    • Supports multiple CAD software solutions and both plastic and metal printers
  • What Can You Do with 3DXpert?

    3DXpert has features for importing, positioning, modifying, optimizing, designing, simulating, analyzing, and slicing & hatching operations. 3DXpert is ideal for include innovative assemblies that reduce part counts and provide greater strength and efficiency, including optimized structure and lower weight. Some typical use cases include:

    • Brackets and blades with optimized structures
    • Patient-specific implants
    • Low-volume production of standard implants
    • Complex anatomical shapes and surgical implants with surface lattice
    • Conformal cooling inserts
  • 3DXpert rendering of a print part
  • 3DXpert Features

    Learn about the features available in 3DXpert for importing, positioning, modifying, optimizing, designing, simulating, analyzing, and more.
  • With 3DXpert, you no longer need to go back and forth between several different solutions to get the job done. Now you can use the same software to:

    1. Import native part data directly from CAD.
    2. Position the part and modify it for printability.
    3. Use Generative Design, Implicit Modeling, lattice structures and textures to optimize geometry.
    4. Create optimal supports. 
    5. Simulate printing to ensure a successful print.
    1. Set optimal printing strategies.
    2. Calculate the scan path.
    3. Arrange the build platform.
    4. Send to print for any industrial printer.

  • What's New in 3DXpert?

    3DXpert 22.2 offers major benefits and more values to AM Designers and Manufacturers across their entire process. From design for AM and optimization through build prep, simulation and slicing. This new version helps ensure that our customers are proficient and productive than ever, in a growing competitive marketplace

    With 3DXpert 22.2 begins a new era in software updates for 3DXpert. New versions will now be released once a quarter and will allow us to be more agile and react much faster to industry trends, new technologies and emerging requirements from the market and from our customers.

    • Rich and powerful design for AM toolset. Lower part weight, material usage, and printing time, and enhance functional part properties while complying with the part mechanical specifications with Generative Design and Implicit Modeling
    • Ensure thermal stability and reduce build failures. Use thermal simulation to find thermal instabilities and automatically modify slicing to fix them.
    • Optimize slicing & hatching to ensure repeatability and quality. Intelligent slicing and hatching calculation engine enables automatic optimization of single and multiple laser head scanpaths, increasing performance and quality. 
    • Automation of build prep workflows. Define automatic workflows using programming-free, smart and easy-to-use scripting.
