Industry-leading software for additive manufacturing

Fully Integrated - Single Environment

3DXpert is your one-stop-shop for additive manufacturing. Streamline your workflow, maximize efficiency, and avoid costly errors, by completing all AM processes in the same software environment, including DfAM, build preparation, simulation, and inspection.

Built Different: CAD at its Core

Achieve up to 75% faster file processing time with CAD to Slice workflows. No more compromising data integrity of mechanically designed parts to STLs. 3DXpert is built on a CAD engine - making history-based, parametric build preparation the new standard in AM. Hybrid DfAM combines the power of solid, mesh, and implicit (voxel-based) modeling.

Automate Your Additive Manufacturing

3DXpert can help you handle any challenge AM throws at you. When faced with repetitive tasks, or part types that re-occur in your trays, 3DXpert can carry a lot of your load for you. By capturing your knowledge into scripts and using AI to group similar parts together and apply solutions to them, you are free to focus on more value-added tasks.

Build Preparation and Slicing

Minimize manufacturing costs

3DXpert helps you keep the relatively high costs of 3D printing as low as possible. Reduce tryouts in your way to your first article, avoid costly mistakes, and optimize your printing process. With complex parts, 3DXpert gives you peace of mind.

  • Decision support Process Simulation - avoid failed builds
  • Single environment - avoid costly errors in file transfers
  • Orient, nest, support, arrange, slice, and optimize
  • Save time and errors through automation
  • Reduce material consumption
  • Cost estimation and reports
Simulate & Compensate

First Time Right

Process simulation anticipates the conditions and events taking place within the build chamber, indicates potential build issues, and allows for automatic pre-compensation of predicted displacement. If you do see deviations in the printed part, 3DXpert can read 3D scan data to provide a scan-based compensation.

  • Structure (mechanical) Simulation - predict failures and deviations
  • Thermal Simulation - ensure thermal stability
  • Simulation-based Compensation
  • Scan-based Compensation

Integrated Process Simulation For Additive Manufacturing

Physics-based job preparation tools powered by Amphyon technology

Build Near-Net-Shape Parts

Reduce costly build iterations. Automatically compensate for deformation. With 3DXpert Process Simulation you can achieve a significant increase of dimensional part accuracy for Metal 3D Printing (LBM, SLM, DMLS). Unprintable geometries become printable.

Prevent Printer Damage

The cooling and shrinking that occurs after each layer is printed may cause the metal to rise above the powder bed level. These raised tips can damage the re-coater or even cause the roller to stop its motion.

Use 3DXpert Mechanical Simulation to predict where metal is likely to rise above the next deposit layer and cause damage to the printer, enabling you to take the appropriate corrective action.

No More Overheating

Scaling from one part to a full build chamber changes the whole process dynamics. The Amphyon technology built into 3DXpert utilizes Thermal Simulation to predict overheating and achieve thermal stability by adapting the process setup with layer-specific cooling times - for all types of laser Metal AM machines. Ensure high-quality part properties.
