SOLIDWORKS 2017 – Print3D

Print3D allows us to analysis our model for 3D printing, for example, identify small gaps, and thin walls which can be an issue for printing, and also faces that needs support.
SOLIDWORKS is able to recommend a minimum wall thickness based on the inputted layer height and material used.
SOLIDWORKS can export the model as 3MF or AMF, which are the newest 3D Printing file format that can provide more information about the model than the traditional STL. There will be no need to post-process the model, position of model, orientation, colour, material will all be retained.
