Lo­gist­ics Labor­at­ory - Soft­ware

3D printing & scaning in the spare parts logistics

  • Simplify 3D (slicing softare for 3D printer)
    Slicing softwares control every aspect of  3D printing. They translate 3D models into instructions that 3D printers understand. Better instructions mean better prints, so a simple upgrade of a slicing software makes all the difference for 3D printing results. 
  • Artec Studio 13 Professional (scanning software)
    This is one of the most popular softwares for professional 3D-scanning und data processing.
  • Geomagic design X (reverse engineering software for scanning)
    Geomagic Design X is an all-round, professional reverse engineering software with a smart combination of history-based CAD with 3D scan data processing, letting you produce feature-based, editable solid models compatible with your existing CAD software.
  • Autodesk Fusion 360
    Autodesk Fusion 360 is a CAD-program, which enables the creation of  digital 3D-objects. These objects can subsequently be printed in one of our 3D-printers.
