  • What is 3DXpert?

    3DXpert® supports every step of the AM workflow, from design to post-processing. 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 post processing
    • 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 programming post-processing 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 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. Optimize the geometry and create lattice structures.
    4. Create optimal supports.
    5. Simulate printing and post-processing to ensure a successful print.
    1. Set optimal printing strategies.
    2. Calculate the scan path.
    3. Arrange the build platform.
    4. Program machining of the final product.
    5. Send to print for any industrial printer.
  • What's New in 3DXpert?

    3DXpert 15 focuses on supporting the shift from rapid prototyping to serial production. New features and enhancements shorten the design-to-manufacturing lead time, minimize manufacturing costs, and optimize design structure.
