Earlier this month, we made a new set of tools available for purchase that make it easy to prepare models for 3D printing. The STL Prep for 3D Printing module helps you repair 3D printing issues -- like water-tightness, wall thickness and self-intersecting triangles-- as easily as you clean up bad geometry today. The module also provides all of the solid creation and editing tools SpaceClaim engineer is famous for so that users can directly edit STL and solids in the same solution.
That combination of features creates a powerful solution. With STL Prep for 3D Printing, users can: create a model for printing from scan data; scrub STL files (as well as OBJ, CGR, and AMF files) of common errors that make them impossible to print instantly; merge the scanned model with another model created in any format or another scan data file; and edit the resulting model just as easily as something you created natively in SpaceClaim.
The STL Prep for 3D Printing module extends SpaceClaim Engineer's intuitive interface, speed, and ability to work with any major 3D format into the 3D printing world. If you work or plan to work with 3D printers, SpaceClaim is now your best friend for easy and powerful model preparation.
With something this innovative and powerful, seeing is believing, so we put together a simple, short video to show you many of the features in this new module. To find out more, visit our STL Prep for 3D Printing page or talk to your SpaceClaim sales representative.
