Streaming Architecture

Cuttlefish® enables users to start printing in seconds after the computation started. This is realized by processing the output for the build tray portion by portion from bottom to top.

Component-Pipeline Architecture

Users and developers are able to choose from a set of components the ones they need to drive their specific printer.

Plugin Capability

Adding new components and therefore new features to Cuttlefish® is easy. We provide a C++ SDK to develop new components that can be loaded into Cuttlefish® dynamically.
