Why 3DXpert?

  • Achieve successful, quality prints. Prepare designs for additive manufacturing (AM) to achieve speed to first good part.
  • Optimize design structure. Get the most out of AM with lighter weights and enhanced functional properties.
  • Shorten design-to-manufacturing lead time. Streamline your preparation and optimization process.
  • Minimize manufacturing costs. Reduce print time, material consumption, and failed builds.


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
  • DfAM - CAD-based design for additive manufacturing
  • Build preparation - unprecedented optimization for AM
  • Integrated application - 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

Additive manufacturing workflow with 3DXpert

With 3DXpert, you no longer need to go back and forth between several different solutions to get the job done.

Design for additive manufacturing

  • Import native data directly from CAD. Position the part and modify it for printability. Use Generative Design, Implicit Modeling, lattice structures and textures to optimize geometry.

Build preparation

  • Create optimal supports, simulate printing to ensure a successful print, and define optimal printing strategies.


  • Calculate the scan path, arrange the build platform, and send to print for any industrial 3D printer.


What's New in 3DXpert?

3DXpert 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. 3DXpert is released on a quarterly basis. Every new version helps to ensure that our customers are more proficient and productive than ever, in a growing competitive marketplace.

  • 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.
