Where to buy Netfabb?

Recommended Posts

In the beginning I was for buying Netfabb too, just to be guided and helped during the printing processes, but now I can really say that Cura is a great software and you don't really need anything else.

I suggest you to get practice with it using the layer visualization option and the automated tools for print supports.

Good luck,

Marco.

I think you can still buy it directly from Ultimaker if you contact the support desk. They stopped selling it in their store because Netfabb stopped supporting the product effectively. I wouldn't recommend it either, based in what I've heard, but I think you can still get it if you really want to.

ok thats what i thought. My problem is that i have to deal with complex Parts with a few thousand polygons, 20h+ printing time and massive overhangings. Cura is a nice slicing Software but sometimes there are lacks of support structure besides other small bugs wich aren´t a problem on small parts but can cause trouble on big parts.

would Netfabb be suitable for my needs?

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
