How can I get these printability checks for a specific printer and a specific material?

Thrinno's advanced version enables to fill in parameter settings in the profile editor.


How does the thermal stress checker work?

We don't consider ourselves as competitors with existing FEA packages predicting thermal stresses and deformations. Our algorithm works with a 'slice checker', considering large area spots per slice and the differences in successive slices. This approach is quite rough, but incredibly fast, enabling the possibility of trying out lots of orientations in seconds or minutes.

 

Confidentiality


I want to use Thrinno's software to make quotes, but I am bound to my customer's NDA.

Probably you receive your RFQs via e-mail and probably you did not set up an NDA with your e-mail provider. And that makes sense, because your e-mail provider is not a manufacturer, but a software company. So are we: Thrinno is a software company with a SaaS business model.

In our terms & conditions you can find the exact specifications of our policy. In short, Thrinno cannot and will not use this data for any purpose.
