Meltio Horizon

Turn-key Metal
3D Printer Slicer

Meltio Horizon is a proprietary toolpath generator software for 3-axis metal 3D printing, tailored specifically to our laser-wire deposition process with the Meltio M450 metal 3D printer.

Slicing made easy

Simpler profile selection and premade profiles that cover a large range of geometries and qualities. Churn out great-looking parts faster without compromising surface finish.

Custom Build Plates

Build plates can be defined by the user and stored as presets. The machine workspace adjusts automatically.

Cool New Possibilities

Make porous structures that can serve as heat exchangers and explore previously untapped possibilities thanks to the new Gyroid lattice infill option.

Improve Layer Flatness

Remove the unnecessary material between infill lines and reduce overbuilding, thanks to the option to unlink infill sections.

Crisp Overhangs

Not only improve the definition of overhangs, but it also allows to push the system further than before, thanks to independent settings for the perimeters.

Meltio Horizon Advantages

Tailor-made to Laser Wire

Made to measure for Meltio’s LMD process and Materials. Complete solution delivered with material parameters.

Easy to use

Only relevant settings are available. Meltio Specific Explainers for all settings to make getting started much easier. 

Integrated

Incorporating more than just toolpath generation. It combines the print and material profiles into a single job file for more control over the printing process.

Future Proof

Building a dedicated platform for toolpath generation specific to Meltio allows us to expand our scope of service in the future.

Custom Gas Profiles

Configure your gas source and cost directly within Meltio Horizon. Flow rates are defined within each material.

Hotwire Compatible

Make full use of Meltio Hotwire features directly from the slicer and configure different sections of the build for quality and speed.

Technical Specifications

Features

Meltio Horizon is a proprietary slicer that ensures a fully tailored customer experience around our plug-and-play metal 3D printer, the Meltio M450 with its own unique features and custom-developed Meltio print and material profiles included.

2 Seats per license:

Each license comes with two seats for installation on two separate computers.

Tailor-made to laser and Dual-wire:

Made to measure for Meltio’s wire-laser metal 3D printing process as well as it also comes with built-in profiles for the Meltio Materials and is fully compatible with our dual wire printing technology.

Custom gas profile:

Configure your gas source and cost directly within Meltio Horizon. Flow rates are defined within each material.

Custom build plates / work spaces:

Select the right substrate right from the slicer depending on the part size. Build plates can be defined by the user and stored as presets. The machine workspace adjusts automatically, notifying the user if a selected build plate is too small.

Project files incorporated:

The complete project file, consisting of the model file, workspace, build plate as well as gas and material profiles can be conveniently stored and shared.

Hotwire Compatible:

Make Full use of Meltio Hotwire features directly from the slicer and configure different sections of the build for quality and speed.

Meltio Horizon Workflow

Slice Geometry

Turn geometries into layers with different strategies for toolpathing and deposition of material.

Combined Job File

Generates a single g-code file that combines toolpath and build parameters, making it impossible to mix up toolpaths and material files and ensuring standardization across machines.

Run Program (print)

Printing process fully controlled by the Meltio M450 user interface and process control software.

Meltio Horizon Slicing Features

Unlinked Infill

Disconnecting infill lines reduces overbuilding and waviness towards the perimeters of parts and ensures extra flat layers.

Full Control

Independently control all deposition parameters, such as speed, laser power, hotwire current, and more on a per-feature basis.

Improved Overhang Quality

Using dedicated settings for each feature improves the overhang quality, bonding between infill and perimeter and allows for faster printing without degrading the surface quality.

Hotwire Printing Processes

Using a Hotwire Process for the infill sections of parts printed with Meltio Horizon it is possible to create visually identical parts with much reduced print times.
Advanced Infill Strategies and Object Modifiers
New Infill strategy for Gyroid Lattice infill can generate parts with defined open cell porosity. Applications include cooling, heat exchangers, and lightweight applications.

Perimeters + Infill Joint

The Joint between Perimeter and infill is a critical area that is particularly prone to porosity. This Porosity is typically not reflected in materials testing as samples are taken from the bulk area. Creating a dedicated joining process alleviates this issue.

Metal 3D Printing Experiences

Daniel Hasic

3D Printing Specialist / ROEZ

” I don’t know how much Meltio saved us, but I can tell you it saved us a lot, and then that’s why we bought the Meltio, to print this case and to reduce the cost of the machining and also reduce the cost of the raw material.

We chose the Meltio M450 as our first choice because we can print a lot of materials directly from the package.

ROEZ is a Slovakian supplier of operating sets and investment units using a Meltio M450.
