3D slicing software is the proverbial bridge that connects a digital CAD file to the 3D printer itself. The program generates individual layers and toolpaths to create the blueprint for the printer to follow when building the part.
TriMech Application Engineer, Dennis Barnum, takes an in-depth look at some of the first-class print preparation tools available and discusses the strengths and weaknesses of each. Dennis highlights the key differences between traditional, single material and full color CMF modeling workflows. He also demonstrates the most efficient ways to bring digital CAD files to life with additive manufacturing:
Some slicing programs are far more robust and sophisticated than others, giving users control over tray and model settings to customize print parameters and optimize characteristics. But with so many different software options on the market today, how do you know which program is the right fit for you?
During this 3D Printing Webinar you will learn:
- The different types of 3D slicing software
- When to use each 3D printing file type
- How to eliminate inconsistent or failed parts
- Differences between single material and CMF modeling
