3S Scripting

3S Scripting enables users to script a workflow of commands in the netfabb Selective Space Structures (3S) software. This is extremely useful in production applications where a certain design principle is applied on a regular basis. Benefits of 3S Scripting include:

  • Time savings for regularly occuring tasks
  • Quality Enhancement by ensuring that a workflow is processed to an exact specification
  • Capability of less experienced operators to carry out complex tasks
  • A tool to program proprietary functions into Selective Space Structures

Examples of applications where 3S Scripting have provided large benefits include:

  • Generation of complex cooling channels in tools
  • Design of structured implants in accordance with a pre-defined and qualified design procedure
  • Generation of complex light weight structures in arbitrary components

The 3S Scripting tool is based on the LUA Programming Language, a powerful, fast, lightweight and embeddable scripting language. For more information about LUA please visit or
