Now you can build advanced workflows in MakePrintable using a simple but yet powerful node-based editor making your 3D printing experience seamless and optimized, saving you time and money.
Building your own 3D preparation workflow is the right way to go whether your goal is to repair 3D files or pack as many models to fit a tight build area.
Drag and Drop from a list of our features and create a custom workflow that suits your 3D Printing needs. And manage your MakePrintable processes manually.
In-depth analysis of the models 3D printability by providing a status bar with the model's issues. Find out its printability errors before printing.
Control your 3D model’s thin areas and thicken them for 3D printing, using our manual or automatic wall thickness adjustment tool.
Repair a 3D model for 3D printing in an entirely automated process. Repair non-manifolds flipped faces, boundary edges, solidity, and wall thickness issues.
Optimize your 3D model’s triangle count by controlling its polygons using our tool. Hollow the mesh to reduce the cost and time of printing.
Transform any 3D model into an STL, OBJ, SVG, or Gcode while ensuring that it's printability is not compromised from the transiting process.
Export your ready to 3D print model to one of our Printing partners Shapeways, 3D Hubs, and imaterialise and order from an extended range of materials.
Access 3D printing API that manages and optimizes your mesh for printing. Enabling your app to analyze, repair and optimize 3d models.
We accept 15+ 3D file formats and accepts files up to 200MB. We created direct plugins for Sketchup, Blender, and Thingiverse that zap your files directly to your MakePrintable account. If your looking to connect through API, please check our Developer section.
Your model will go through the Analyses process, and a viewer will showcase the 3D printability issues of your model, along with stats on common printing issues like boundary edges, non-manifolds, flipped faces, solidity, and wall thickness problems.
Our repair process rebuilds the mesh of your model optimising it for 3D printing, and removing all issues. The repair takes place on cloud servers at fastest speeds, with most accurate detail. A before and after will show you the results of improved model.
Pick from various 3D formats to download your file. Obj, STL, 3MF, Gcode, and SVG. You can slice your repaired model using Slic3r, or Print directly through one of our printing partners. Your model will be stored in the my model section for future needs.

I’ve been testing MakePrintable to repair errant STL 3D models and found that its capabilities are quite unique among the many model repair options available to 3D print operators. This product uses different approaches and can make repairs to 3D models not easily done with other tools. I’m adding MakePrintable to my toolkit of 3D printing utility software.

MakePrintable is by far the easiest print-prepping mechanism I've had the pleasure of using. I've thrown some really complex intersecting geometry at it, and gotten back something I can slice and print without having to spend hours running boolean operations.
We've tried dozens of 3D print cleanup solutions and pipelines but the results have always been unsatisfactory. We have been very impressed with what we've seen and tested with MakePrintable and we look forward to following their progress as they enter public beta we have high hopes for this tool.
