Flow™ Pre-Print Software

Print Preparation Software

Flow Software ensures predictable print outcomes while reducing preparation time. Driven by an integrated simulator and co-developed with Sapphire®, Flow enables parts not previously possible with Additive Manufacturing (AM).

Process Aware, Simulation Driven

Flow Software eliminates the frustration of print preparation Flow software:

  • A faster workflow that preserves the designer’s intent.
  • Fewer print errors and a streamlined, simplified user experience.

Manufacture Any Design - Deliver On AM’s Biggest Promise

Flow™ enables SupportFree for metal; VELO3D’s unique ability to print low angles, large diameters and inner diameters without supports. It overcomes historical limitations so engineers are free to innovate and accelerate product performance.

Assure™ Quality Assurance
and Control System

Deliver Predictable Print Outcomes

An integrated simulation engine predicts print outcome and applies print deformation correction to the part, assuring that the part will print exactly as designed the first time and every time in production.

Accelerate Print Preparation with Flow Native CAD Workflow

Flow™ Pre-Print Software native CAD workflow, helps engineers preserve the design intent. It makes metal 3D printing more accessible by integrating smart tools that help users with orientation strategy, support generation, print simulation, persurface process application, and process review.

Pre-Print Software


Print True to Design
Flow is the first and only print preparation software that delivers a print outcome based on the designer’s intent.
With native CAD workflow, users seamlessly translate the original design into print instructions. Users can optimize for target cost and quality parameters by surface.

Native CAD Print Preparation
The simple, intuitive Flow UI provides unprecedented ease of use. By retaining CAD’s capabilities, it makes cumbersome
processes fast and easy. Flow also supports workflows with topologically-optimized and generatively-designed parts.

Simulation Engine
Process-aware simulation in Flow can correct for build deformation and post-processing issues before the build even begins,
leading to typical first-print success of 90 percent.

Flow has a sophisticated composer that detects geometric features and applies an optimized process to those features, delivering predictable print outcomes. Unlike other slicing software, geometric feature detection uses information from previous layers to define print strategy for the next layer.
Flow Process Review lets you review the applied processes, laser assignment, and print order in 3D or 2D slices, prior to printing, assuring that the printer does what you specified.
