Alibre Atom3D Overview
Welcome to Alibre Atom3D
The perfect 3D modeling program for enthusiasts. Easily craft, edit, and refine your idea and then send it to your 3D printer, CNC machine, laser cutter, or printer. Everything fits, it looks great, and you waste less.
Alibre Atom3D is built on 20 years of business-grade CAD development, but with a highly simplified interface and just the features you need to make your ideas come to life, whatever they are.
What can you design with Alibre Atom3D?
Pretty much anything you plan on building. For example:
Make manufacturable parts
Combine parts to make a finished design
Analyze your designs to make sure your parts fit correctly
Create basic 2D drawings
Import STEP, SAT, DWG, DXF, and SolidWorks
Export STL, STEP, SAT, DWG, DXF, 2D PDF, and 3D PDF
Compatible with almost all CAM, 3D printer, laser cutter, and other fabrication software
For your 3D printer
Alibre Atom3D has a rich history of working with 3D printer manufacturers to ensure high quality prints. Outputs from Alibre Atom3D can be opened in any 3D printing application, such as Ultimaker Cura or MakerBot® Print. Export STEP or STL files directly to your slicer of choice for final print prep.
For your CNC machine
Alibre Atom3D works with just about any CAM software by exporting an STL, SAT, STEP, DWG, or DXF file. For a fully integrated experience, you can use Mecsoft’s AlibreCAM right inside Alibre Atom3D.
For you laser cutter/engraver
Convert your 3D model to a 2D drawing automatically. Lay it out as you please, and then export a DXF or PDF. Open these in almost all popular laser cutter software. Edits you make in the 3D model update the 2D drawing as well, so changes are easy and don’t require tedious rework.
For fabrication services
Don’t have access to your own fabrication machine? Upload your 3D and 2D files to the likes of 3D Hubs, Shapeways, Ponoko, and others. Choose from dozens of materials suited for strength, surface finish, or appearance. Sit back and wait for the mailman.
For the hardware store
Building it yourself? More power to you. Get the design perfect in the 3D model and then create 2D drawings in a few clicks. Add dimensions and notes and save it as a PDF file or just print it. Use your drawing to buy your materials and as a reference while you build your masterpiece.
Alibre Atom3D Software Requirements
Supported Operating Systems
Windows 7 – 64 bit
Windows 8 – 64 bit
Windows 10 – 64 bit
4 GB RAM minimum
Note: if your designs are very complex or you use lots of applications at the same time, you may need more RAM.
Video card must be compatible with DirectX 9
Internet access is required for activation and de-activation of the software. It is also required every few weeks to refresh your license.
– Faster cores are more beneficial to Alibre Atom3D than multiple, slower cores
– Larger assemblies (e.g. 100s of parts) will require more RAM
– An SSD will significantly speed up load and save times
