Software


MakerWare
MakerWare is a program that enables you to drive your 3D Printer. The program lets you move, rotate and scale your 3D models. It is a powerful algorithm that slices your digital file into very thin layers to prepare it for 3D printing.

Rhino
Rhino can create, edit, analyze, document, render, animate, and translate NURBS* curves, surfaces, and solids, point clouds, and polygon meshes. There are no limits on complexity, degree, or size beyond those of your hardware.

OnShape
Onshape is a free, full-cloud 3D CAD system that lets everyone on a design team work together using any web browser, phone, or tablet.

MeshMixer
Meshmixer is a free tool for working with mesh models. It is great for mashing together existing meshes and also for preparing files for printing or fabrication.

Project Shapeshifter
Project Shapeshifter is a free technology preview created to assist designers and makers cope with the task of modeling complex 3D printable geometries in a simple way.

TinkerCad
Tinkercad is an easy-to-use tool for creating digital designs that are ready to be 3D printed into physical objects. Users are guided through the 3D design process through ‘Lessons’, which teach the basics before moving on to more complex modeling techniques..

OpenSCAD
OpenSCAD is free software for creating solid 3D CAD models.
