Autodesk has announced the launch of Netfabb 2017, the latest version of its popular software solution for industrial Additive Manufacturing professionals. Netfabb 2017 integrates design enhancement, manufacturing preparation and build simulation tools in one software system that shares a common installer, common file formats and process definitions.
It was stated that users can access all the software they need to help reduce costs, increase efficiency and improve part performance in industrial Additive Manufacturing production environments.
“Additive manufacturing is having a profound impact on how manufacturers of all sizes look at product design, production, distribution and economies of scale,” stated Samir Hanna, Vice President and General Manager of digital manufacturing at Autodesk. “With Netfabb 2017, Autodesk has created a single set of industrial tools that help move from design to finished part quickly and easily.”
Since acquiring Netfabb in 2015, Autodesk has added a number of powerful new capabilities to the software package including enhanced simulation, optimisation and advanced toolpath capabilities. These provide engineers and designers with a broad collection of additive design and manufacturing tools.
