Delcam’s PartBuilder software, currently under development at the company’s Birmingham headquarters, is intended to provide fast, easy methods to prepare CAD files for additive manufacturing from both native and neutral formats. The software covers four main steps in model preparation: checking the quality of the CAD model and repairing any problem; positioning the part in the optimum orientation; adding fixtures, supports or other required geometry; and exporting the complete data in a suitable file format. PartBuilder can output models in a growing range of manufacturers’ file formats including CLI data for EOS machines and MTT data for Renishaw equipment, as well as STL mesh data that can be processed directly by most additive machines’ native software.
