SpaceClaim Shows Live 3D Collaboration and Groundbreaking Prep for 3D Printing Tools at Atlantic Design & Manufacturing

Tuesday, 10 June 2014

Attendees will see SpaceClaim’s new Live Review Cloud-Enabled Collaboration and STL Prep for 3D Printing Capabilities First Hand

NEW YORK, Atlantic Design & Manufacturing Booth # 203, June 10, 2104 -- SpaceClaim, the leading provider of fast and intuitive 3D modeling software for engineers, is exhibiting how easy it is to leverage SpaceClaim’s capabilities across the entire manufacturing process at Atlantic Design & Manufacturing, opening today. Designers can rapidly create concepts with a simple yet powerful interface. Machinists can easily import any major CAD model for repair, defeaturing, and prep for manufacturing.

In addition, SpaceClaim is showcasing two new innovations on the SpaceClaim Engineer platform. STL Prep for 3D Printing, SpaceClaim Engineer’s add-on module -  extends its intuitive interface, speed, and ability to work with any major 3D format into the 3D printing world with the ability to edit STL files. LiveReview brings the power of SpaceClaim into a single, secure session where more than one user can contribute to and engage in editing a model in real time. 

STL Prep for 3D Printing module prepares models for 3D printing efficiently and easily by offering a set of tools to repair printing problems and to modify STL and CAD files, as easily as if they were created natively or imported. Engineers can use the module to check for and repair water-tightness and intersections, to shell models to save on material, and to create connecting features in order to combine parts of a model after printing. STL Prep for 3D Printing also works with OBJ, CGR, and AMF file formats.

“SpaceClaim continues to extend the reach of 3D beyond the CAD experts, allowing engineers to apply their expertise without spending most of their time learning how to use the software,” said Frank DeSimone, SpaceClaim vice president of software development. “Atlantic Design & Manufacturing is an opportunity for us to show engineers what is possible when the software does exactly what they need it to, without getting in the way of their ideas. 3D modeling should not be a complication or bottleneck in the manufacturing process but an opportunity to expand capability and success.”

With the STL Prep for 3D Printing module, users can work directly with STL files to:

    • Analyze & Clean STL: Intersections, ensure it is watertight, fix immediately
    • Edit STL: Cut up model, slice them into several parts for multi-material printing
    • Combine STL models with other STL models or even solids
    • Decimation/reduction
    • Shell models to minimize waste & Create Connecting Features

Live Review makes design review, remodeling, or model walk-throughs more productive and engaging with:

    • A fast and intuitive interface: no training, no downloads, no models to email
    • Interactive and simultaneous experience: LiveReview encourages active participation in the review and editing of models. This is not passive attendance.
    • Secure data management: A hosted, multi-user SpaceClaim session that protects your design while showing it in detail

Engineers can visit SpaceClaim’s website to begin a trial of SpaceClaim Engineer, Live Review, and the STL Prep for 3D Printing module at: http://www.spaceclaim.com/en/trial.aspx.
