What's inside your part?

The state of the slice

Modern slicers have a staggering number of print parameters, giving you near complete control over how a part is printed. Everything from the infill pattern and density to the layer height and wall thickness, to name just a few. This control means that there are nearly endless possible configurations and each configuration ultimately determines how your printed part performs. Getting these parameters dialed-in is essential to manufacturing a part that is able to meet performance demands.

Say good-bye to the print-break cycle

You've printed your part but how do you know it won't break when put into service? The primary method, until now, has been expensive print-break-iterate cycles that rely on tribal knowledge and trial and error. This approach is far from ideal.

Enter SmartSlice

SmartSlice takes the guesswork out of determining print parameters, optimizing them for performance demands and manufacturing efficiency. We have removed the ambiguity and confusion of selecting slicing print parameters by automating the process and identifying the best potential profiles to make superior parts, faster.

Optimally engineered parts

SmartSlice uses sophisticated optimization routines to ensure parts meet requirements

Reduced material usage

Material is placed only were it is needed based on requirements you define

Minimized print time

Print time is prioritized during the optimization process

Validated parts, faster

Virtual prototyping cuts the number of build-break iterations dramatically

SmartSlice creates real value

The benefits of using SmartSlice are clear:

Parts that meet performance requirements, produced quickly and with minimal material usage.

Understand part performance...

Understand how your part performs with your current print profile using the Validate feature. In just seconds, SmartSlice tells you if your part is under- or over-designed by comparing simulated part deflection and safety factors to limits you define.

...then optimize for the best possible part

Get the most out of your part with a SmartSlice Optimization. Ensure structural requirements are safely met while minimizing print time and part mass for a truly optimized print profile.

Step 1 - Open the part and select print settings

Step 1

Open your part in Cura, select a material, and enter the SmartSlice stage.

Step 2 - smartslice_logo

Step 2

Define use cases and requirements. Then, it's as simple as 1-click validation and optimization.

Step 3 - Review the optimized print settings
