ideaMaker: Intuitive Slicing Software Packed with Advanced Features

Manufacturing, Engineering or Education-Your 3D Prints are Only as Good as the Software You’re Using

ideaMaker is all about options and saving those options to use later. ideaMaker allows you to create specific settings for different printers, filaments and models- then quickly and easily store them for later use. These profiles can also be exported and imported from other team members, allowing the community to share best practices with each other in a way that streamlines workflow.

Custom Supports

Easily create precise support structures automatically or create 3D masterpieces using a completely customizable support system. Change the thickness of the supports as well as add or remove them manually — With ideaMaker you can be sure your prints have minimal scarring and look their very best.

Custom Supports

Adaptive Layer Height- Speed & Quality Combined

ideaMaker can be set to automatically raise or lower the layer height depending on the level of detail required for the current area being printed, further improving quality and reducing print time.

Adaptive Layer Height- Speed & Quality Combined

Take Maximum Advantage of the Open Filament Program (OFP)

ideaMaker allows simplified use of 3rd party filaments with customized profiles categorized by brand and material that can be downloaded and saved from the OFP directory. With ideaMaker, tested and certified materials from the OFP come with preset profiles that have already done the work for you to determine temperature, flow rate and speed, so you get consistent, quality prints every time.

Easily Create Textures

One STL, Endless Possibilities

With ideaMaker Texture, users can easily create different iterations of the same STL model by applying different patterns to the selected model’s surface. It works by creating a concave or convex surface on the designated model according to the values of an image’s greyscale.

Skip lengthy CAD processing

After the user selects an image with the desired pattern, ideaMaker will automatically apply the image across the surface of the model and generate the 3D texture. Users can then adjust the settings to the tweak the texture’s specifications to meet their requirements. More textures are available in ideaMaker Library.

Customize Your Support

Advanced Toolset for Support Editing

ideaMaker is a 3D slicing software that automatically generates support structure while providing a set of tools for manual editing and advanced purposes. Some examples include PVA support, creating a more stable support structure, creating an easy break-away structure, and reducing abundant support.

An Easy Interface and A Smooth Editing Process

Users can begin adding or removing support structures in two clicks. ideaMaker’s intuitive user interface allows users to process support structure smoothly, even from angels and different views.

Using Automatic Parameters for Optimization

One Click to Optimize

Powered by sophisticated algorithms, ideaMaker automatically computes the best slicing settings for users. Users can enable automatic optimization with one click, instead of having to manually inspect and optimize multiple parameters.

Balance Cost and Time Without Sacrificing Surface Quality

ideaMaker uses algorithms to compute the slicing parameters for layer height, infill structure, and support structure. By adapting parameters accordingly, the filament consumption and printing time decrease while surface quality is maintained.

Variable Setting for Selected Region

Improve 3D Printed Parts by Fine-Tuning Parameters Region by Region

Use one of ideaMaker’s powerful tools to optimize parameters of designated regions despite the global setting. Users have the flexibility to decide the scope of the region. This empowers advanced applications such as improving a 3D printed part’s mechanical performance.

Flexible Scope for Region Selecting

Users can decide the scope of the intended region in ways of model group, layers, or overlapped shapes. With the layers and model group, users can designate models in one group, and further certain layers of same model group. Users can also designate the overlapped shape of two models.

Modify Model Freely

Freely Adjust Models on Demand

Boolean tools are integrated into ideaMaker to help users carve, split, and combine models. This capability is useful in situations involving excessive model size and model personalization. It also saves users the extra time of running CAD software to achieve Boolean operations.

Update Models Quickly and Precisely

Combine graphic interface and numeric setting panels to easily and precisely adjust models while inspecting the result instantly. By using a combination of the rotating model and scaling tool, a user can quickly update models as desired.
