Autodesk Labs Project Miller: Gcode simulator tests your print virtually before you waste plastic #3DThursday #3DPrinting

Autodesk Labs Project Miller: Gcode simulator tests your print virtually before you waste plastic, via SolidSmack:

Optimize and validate your design before you build it. Autodesk Simulation is extending this mission to the growing community of 3D printers.

Project Miller is a free technology preview developed to improve results with 3D printing. Is my model geometry printable? What changes can be made to improve it? What will the printed part look like? Like the ultimate Print Preview, Miller enables you to inspect your model, visualize how it will print, and identify problems in advance. Once you’ve imported your CAD geometry or GCODE, Project Miller offers several visualization and simulation tools to evaluate your model inside and out:

  • Result — View printing details such as feed rate, thickness or volume of extruded polymer, layer count and more
  • Visual — View the model with solids or lines
  • Animate — Watch how the model will be printed
  • Clipping — Create a planar cut to examine the interior of your model
  • Surface — If issues are detected, Miller’s Surface feature will help you re-surface your complex geometry and export an optimized 3D geometry (STL) for printing.
  • Mesh — Choose how to re-mesh your model

Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!

Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!

The Adafruit Learning System has dozens of great tools to get you well on your way to creating incredible works of engineering, interactive art, and design with your 3D printer! If you’ve made a cool project that combines 3D printing and electronics, be sure to let us know, and we’ll feature it here!


Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
