Netfabb, a subsidiary of FIT AG, has released Netfabb Professional 6, the latest version of its 3D printing software intended to simplify design tasks for complex parts and shorten production cycles. The release features a 2D nesting module which automatically arranges a maximum number of printable parts on the build platform. Automatic mass labeling capability adds unique identification codes to identical parts for quality assurance in mass production applications. New features include the ability to hide selected triangles to open the view to underlying elements; texture imposing for reliefs on part surfaces; and customizable PDF reports for quoting and quality assurance. This version of the software has been future-proofed with support for the new 3MF file format for industrial 3D print data.

The developer also offers the Selective Space Structures (3S) add-on for designing bionic structures, and the Support Structures add-on for complex DLP and stereolithography projects.
