Using established file formats (parasolid, step, etc) import your existing CAD file into our platform.

2. Slice 2. Slice

Whether your part is single- or double-sided, set layer height and slicing direction, and find your part automatically sliced.

3. Segment 3. Segment

Depending on your chosen building approach, draw segmentation lines that divide your layer's contour into building blocks. Thanks to layer grouping, segmentation is applied throughout similar layers.

4. Generate 4. Generate

Tool-path plans are generated automatically, based on your choice of material and build strategy (oscillated or parallel deposition, whenever the default single deposition cannot provide you with sufficient thickness).

5. Receive process parameters 5. Receive process parameters

Depending on geometry, material, and deposition process, our Material Keys automatically populate your tool-path plan with all primary process parameters. Automatically-generated multiple sets of process parameters cope properly with variations in thermal mass, keep layer height under control, and avoid lack-of-fusion defects.

6. Post-process 6. Post-process

Depending on your chosen deposition process, our post-processor automatically translates the tool-path-plan into a printable file that's sent to the printer's controller.
