Best 3D Printing Software

3D printing software facilitates the printing of 3D objects created inside of 3D modeling software by translating the model into data a 3D printer can understand. 3D printing software is also sometimes called slicer software because it breaks down a 3D model into sections, enabling a 3D printer to create the object slice by slice.

3D printing software is commonly used in makerspaces and creative studios with 3D printers, but anyone with a 3D printer will need to use slicer software to print their designs. 3D printing software often has overlap or works alongside other 3D design software or general-purpose CAD software.

To qualify for inclusion in the 3D Printing category, a product must:

  • Translate 3D models into printable instructions for 3D printers
  • Repair and edit STL, 3MF, or OBJ files
