Netfabb announced the release of netfabb Professional 5, the latest version of its software for 3D printing and additive manufacturing. According to the company, it improves productivity in quoting, file review, file fixing, mesh optimization and build setup. The quality control minimizes failed builds and machine errors.
The company says that the software provides 80 percent faster automatic repair and macro scripting. Part quality is improved with enhanced mesh modification, new boolean and text, and labeling. The software supports full-color parts printing.
The new release allows users to view files on various triangulated formats to determine main parameters and to help predict special issues, calculate pricing and determine the best orientation for manufacturing. It also provides the ability to make late design changes and modify details to improve production; add text and labels on parts to mark them for identification; optimize and fine-tune the mesh to improve surfaces; and pack builds manually and check for collisions live.
