Powermill Logo

Powermill is a 3D Computer-aided manufacturing app developed by Autodesk Inc. It runs on Microsoft Windows and is used in many different engineering industries to determine optimal toolpaths to reduce time and manufacturing costs.

Powermill rapidly creates toolpaths on large, complex parts, works with surfaces, solids and STL meshes. It uses efficient roughing strategies and can create gouge and collision free toolpaths, which can be edited and optimized. The software obtains comprehensive range of finishing toolpaths, user-defined macros and templates for automated CAM, extensive library of tool types for use with 3- and 5-axis milling, and specialist tools for demanding industries and applications.

GLB

GLB is a standardized file format for sharing 3D data used in virtual reality, augmented reality, games, and online applications. GLB files are a binary form of the GL Transmission Format (glTF) file, which employs JSON (JavaScript Object Notation) encoding.

Supporting data such as 3D scenes, models, lighting, materials, and geometry / animation are all stored in a single GLB file, eliminating the need for extra support files to access textures, geometry, shaders, animation, and other types of data required for a 3D view. GLB files are 30% smaller than glTF and its associated files, so they load and process faster.

GLB is compatible with various 3D visualization programs, such as Microsoft Paint 3D, Microsoft Remix 3D, Blender, Trimble 3D Warehouse, SketchUp.
