ideaMaker: Intuitive Slicing Software Packed with Advanced Features

Manufacturing, Engineering or Education-Your 3D Prints are Only as Good as the Software You’re Using

ideaMaker is all about options and saving those options to use later. ideaMaker allows you to create specific settings for different printers, filaments and models- then quickly and easily store them for later use. These profiles can also be exported and imported from other team members, allowing the community to share best practices with each other in a way that streamlines workflow.

Custom Supports

Easily create precise support structures automatically or create 3D masterpieces using a completely customizable support system. Change the thickness of the supports as well as add or remove them manually — With ideaMaker you can be sure your prints have minimal scarring and look their very best.

Adaptive Layer Height- Speed & Quality Combined

ideaMaker can be set to automatically raise or lower the layer height depending on the level of detail required for the current area being printed, further improving quality and reducing print time.

Take Maximum Advantage of the Open Filament Program (OFP)

ideaMaker allows simplified use of 3rd party filaments with customized profiles categorized by brand and material that can be downloaded and saved from the OFP directory. With ideaMaker, tested and certified materials from the OFP come with preset profiles that have already done the work for you to determine temperature, flow rate and speed, so you get consistent, quality prints every time.
