Why would I need 3D printing software?

In order to reveal the full the potential of your 3D printer, it is crucial to have the right software. Achieving the optimum results in additive manufacturing requires a delicate balance of accuracy, high detail and speed, and software plays a vital role in ensuring that balance is achieved. This is particularly true for BigRep's 3D printers, which have been specifically designed to work seamlessly with our software products.

By utilizing the advanced capabilities of our software, you can achieve greater control over your prints, fine-tune your settings for greater efficiency, and optimize your designs to achieve great results.

What is Slicing?

Before a 3D computer model can be transformed into a physical object, it must first go through a slicing software program to generate the gcode that 3D printers use to create the object. Our slicing software, BLADE, offers a variety of pre-configured profiles, optimizing the printing process and saving you valuable time and money. The advanced selection of settings allows for complete customization to save time and money when printing and perfecting your object.

CAD Modelling

What is CAD Modeling?

CAD stands for Computer-aided design. CAD modeling software is a powerful technology that enables you to create complex 3D models with ease. Once you have created your model, it must go through a slicing program to generate the gcode needed to print it. With FLOW you can access automation tools that calculate print times and potential costs. You can also create ready-to-use templates, fixtures and manufacturing aids without the need for any design skills.


What is Print Monitoring Software?

Print monitoring software is a vital tool for obtaining information about your 3D printing process. With CONNECT, you will have access to a wealth of information about your prints, including print times, material usage and analytical data. This information enables you to make informed decisions about your printing process, allowing you to fully optimize your workflow.

Which software is right for you?

When you are using a BigRep printer you are already required to use BLADE as your slicing software. It is also highly recommended to use CONNECT to monitor your prints and have complete analytics to optimize your workflow. Additionally, when configuring the design of specific tools, such as templates and fixtures, and manufacturing auxiliaries, FLOW can speed up production capabilities significantly.
