The Silhouette Alta is Silhouette’s first 3D printing machine. Create custom objects in the Silhouette 3D software and print 3D versions of those objects with the Alta machine. This machine is designed to take your creativity to a whole new dimension!
3D printing is the process of creating a physical 3D object from a digital model. The digital model is prepared for 3D printing through a process called slicing, where the software breaks down the printing process by each layer. When the slicing process is done, the software sends the information to the 3D printer, which prints one thin layer of melted filament at a time. When the filament has cooled down, the 3D object is complete.
The Silhouette Alta comes preassembled, precalibrated, and ready to plug and play right out of the box. That means you can start playing with the Silhouette Alta and printing unique 3D objects right away.
Included with the purchase of the Silhouette Alta, you also get the Silhouette 3D software to customize and prepare your 3D design to print. This software is unique because it’s a one-stop shop; you can design and slice your objects and send the printing instructions to the 3D printer all through Silhouette 3D. This is a game changer! Many 3D printing systems don’t allow you to design and slice within a single software experience.
