Easily create a negative

In just a few clicks, subtract complex geometries, avoid undercuts, and fine-tune offsets for a securely fitted fixture.

Export fixturemate

Seamless 3D printing integration

Exports are optimized for 3D printing, so once your design is complete, simply slice, 3D print, and deploy your custom fixture within hours.


Industry-standard components included

A range of standard clamps and baseplates are available directly in fixturemate, saving you the hassle of creating these components from scratch.

An intuitive web-based software enabling anyone to design fixtures for 3D printing.

How our customers rethink fixtures

Audi sport team

"In CAD we usually need two to four hours to produce a design, depending on the size of the part. With fixturemate we can produce a usable fixture in minutes."

Cem Guelaylar Additive Manufacturing Lead at Audi Sport GmbH

"trinckle's fixturemate software has seamlessly integrated design automation into our additive manufacturing processes for tooling at Deutsche Bahn. The software has drastically reduced our design times and costs."

Sven Gaede Application Engineer, DB Fahrzeuginstandhaltung GmbH

fixturemate design workflow

Step 1

Import CAD data

Upload STL, 3MF, SLDPRT, or STEP workpieces, and position them in the workspace. 

Step 1
Step 2

Define the baseplate 

Your fixture's baseplate can be a standard manufactured component, or completely 3D printed.

Step 2
Step 3

Generate support structures

Support workpieces with rectangular, cylindrical, conical, or custom-shaped structures.

Step 3
Step 4

Create a negative

Subtract your workpiece geometry from the support structures to form a nested geometry, and fine-tune offsets for a snug fixture fit.

Step 4
Step 5

Add standard components

Incorporate optional features, such as clamps, text labels, holes, or cutouts.

Step 5
Step 6

Export for 3D printing 

fixturemate outputs STL files optimized for 3D printing. It can also auto-generate PDFs of 2D drawings to clearly communicate the assembly process.
