SmartSlice Slicing Optimizer - Single User License

Get so much more from your 3D printing with the SmartSlice print optimization plugin. SmartSlice is a slicing software plug-in from Teton Simulation that works with your design needs to ensure that your 3D prints succeed at the jobs you've made them for. Validate and optimize print parameters or apply STL modifications to confidently achieve end-use requirements, all intuitively and from within your slicer--Cura, STRATOS, and more. SmartSlice automatically identifies print profiles for your FFF parts to achieve the best performance without the constant and continuous iteration that can plague traditional qualification. SmartSlice also looks for opportunities to provide the most efficient manufacturing of your design, opening up options for batch printing, all of which can save your bottom line. Optimized parts, direct from the world's most popular slicer.

Select Single User License for an individual or business, or Multi-User License for educational applications that require five users int he same organization.

Designed for Users of Every Experience Level to Be Fast, Accurate and Intuitive

SmartSlice bridges the gap between design and application by simulating real world physics to tell you how your part will perform once it's been printed and installed. This frees you from the countless cycles of printing, testing, and revising that eats up precious time and materials.

As a plug-in for any flavor of Cura as well as STRATOS from BCN3D, the interface is unobtrusive and incredibly easy, and allows you to define performance requirements for your part, before it engages in cloud-based optimization to return a number of solutions to achieve the results you need. This could be as simple as revising the slicer settings such as infill or layer thickness, or it could mean incorporating model modifications, provided by SmartSlice.

Once you've worked with SmartSlice to finalize your part, simply print and install into your application. No need to adjust the design and print again: it works the first time.

Rob Ellis, owner of Carbotech shared how SmartSlice has helped his business: "SmartSlice has proven to give substantial savings which are already showing benefits both for us and for our clients."

For one project, Carbotech was able to save 50.4 hours in print time thanks to SmartSlice.

Cut Down on Time and Material, Improve Performance

By using the integrated plug-in in Cura or STRATOS, SmartSlice helps you to make certain your part will perform exactly how you need it, on the first print. Rather than testing it in its use-case, allow SmartSlice to simulate the part in action and hand you the adjustments you need before you 3D printer even heats up.

The ROI is excellent, and Teton Simulations' studies have shown that the cost-savings can pay for itself--and your 3D printer--within a matter of months.

Within your slicer, define surfaces that will be experiencing stress, and provide weight and pressure minimums they need to withstand.

Once SmartSlice runs its simulation, it will present a number of suggestions for improving your design to achieve your needs, on the first print.

SmartSlice is Engineering to Save You Time 

SmartSlize was developed to optimize the engineering of your parts specifically for faster, better 3D printing. Not only does this help you save time, but it also cuts down on material use, making your spools last longer.
