Design for 3D Printing

Create world class products using the latest 3D printing techniques. Our tools support your end-to-end workflow, from design for 3D printing techniques, to preparation and output to 3D printing hardware and services with color printing capability.

Next Generation Design

The future of 3D product development—generative modeling, additive manufacturing and reverse engineering, enabled by Convergent Modeling technology. Read more…

Preparation of geometry for additive techniques

Seamlessly combine traditional “b-rep” solid models with triangular mesh models without time-consuming and error-prone conversions, reducing rework while supporting additive manufacturing processes for complex shapes.

Direct output of models to your 3D printer

Solid Edge supports output of your part models to 3D Printers using the 3D Print command. Write out your parts to .stl and .3MF formats, or send your parts directly to the Microsoft 3D Builder app. This allows you to print in-house with automated print preparation, including color printing capability.

Instant quotes and parts shipped to your door

With Solid Edge, you can also send your designs directly to cloud-based 3D printing services like 3YOURMIND to get quotes, with real time price and lead time comparison, for manufacturing the part in different materials and shipping to your location.

3D Printing: Quick tips for going from CAD design to printed object

Whether you would like to use 3D printing for your amusement or your income, whether you’re planning to create finished parts or to make prototypes, and whether you’ve downloaded a model or you’re creating one from scratch… your printing process will start with a design.

Additive manufacturing techniques

Solid Edge allows you to fully take advantage of additive manufacturing, whether you are creating individual prototypes or manufacturing larger volumes of components.
