Speed and Ease of Use of SpaceClaim Engineer now available for editing STL!

The STL Prep for 3D printing module prepares models for 3D printing efficiently and easily by offering a single solution that not only repairs problems, but also modifies STL and CAD files. This new module also extends SpaceClaim Engineer’s intuitive interface, speed, and ability to work with any major 3D format into the 3D printing world.

Work with STL

  • Analyze and clean STL: Watertight and intersection analysis; generalized detection of holes, misaligned normals, co-incident triangle; repair STL for printing
  • Decimation/reduction
  • Cut and combine parts (boolean operations)
  • Edit STL directly

Shelling & Creating Connecting Features

  • Shelling: Less printing costs, less shipping costs, faster print times
  • Creating Connecting Features: Make connecting pins or offsets to recombine the model after printing
  • Converting to solid: Thickening, deleting, splitting and more

Other Benefits

  • Save and export STL files
  • Import other faceted formats such as OBJ, cgr, AMF
