Create the Best Designs for 3D Printing

A great design for 3D printing usually starts with a CAD file, simulation result, or scanned data as input. To benefit from the possibilities that 3D printing offers, you need a flexible tool to make specific design modifications or enhancements, often at the mesh level. Whether you want to produce a functional automotive part, a lightweight aerospace part or fascinating shoes, our specialized software helps you optimize your designs with an unprecedented degree of freedom.
