DeskArtes Additive Manufacturing and 3D Printing Products

The DeskArtes software products provide complete professional Additive Manufacturing data processing solutions

DeskArtes 3Data Expert AM software suite starts from free STL repair and goes to full Additive Manufacturing data preparation, including 3D CAD conversion, STL editing, DefAM, AM support generation, slicing, hatching, G-code and bitmap generation. You can take full control of AM production with DeskArtes AM software.

The latest version includes a simple step by step workflow and supporting command sets for effective 3D model preparation. Print Configuration files allow to preset the software for specific AM process and materials, supported with friendly graphical user interface and excellent 3D data processing algorithms!

DeskArtes 3Data Expert allows you to process 3D models for AM effectively with:

  • User friendly and clear four step workflow to support efficient 3D data preparation for AM.
  • Print Configuration files for presetting the software for your specific AM system.
  • Efficient and accurate 3D CAD model conversion to STL or 3MF.
  • Full 3D model repair and checking via automatic repair commands, including "shrink wrap"
  • 3D model editing with 3D Lattice, Boolean, Split, Offset, Smooth etc. operations.
  • Part positioning to preset workspace with automatic 3D Nesting and Orientation commands.
  • Support generation for metal, DLP, stereolithography and sand based AM systems.
  • Final 3D print preparation with Z Compensation, Slicing, Tool compensation and Hatching for accurate component production.
  • Send to Print with a single command to various AM processes.

Standard input formats include STL, VRML, ZPR, 3MF, PLY, 3DS, OBJ, DXF, and slice formats CLI, SSL, SLC and SLI.

Optional input formats IGES, VDA/FS, STEP, CATIA 4/5/6, CATIA CGR, Unigraphics, SolidWorks, Solidedge, Inventor, Parasolid, JT and Creo/ProE allow to input directly native 3D CAD data with geometry and colors for 3D Color Printing and AM.

DeskArtes provides professional tools for Additive Manufacturing and Simulation data preparation worldwide. DeskArtes data preparation tools allow you to take any 3D CAD file and triangulate, verify, heal, modify, support, slice and hatch it for the AM processes. Customers in the AM/CAD/CAM/CAE industry vary from AM service bureaus to leading car manufacturers and other multi national industrial companies and to AM hardware and software OEM.

DeskArtes 3D Data Processing software packages for Additive Manufacturing offer the most wide range of high-end functionality for data repair and processing of standard format data files, like verify/repair, generate supports, slice and produce AM production documentation.
