SolidEdge Version Poll

RepRap Blog

The current version of model file releases is under v19. However, I''d like to move to v21 as I''m getting stability issues with v19, however, I don''t want to do that if it''s going to alienate any SolidEdge modellers out there (you won''t be able to open v21 files from v19). You may already be aware we''re allowed to use Solid Edge under an academic licence for development.

Learn how to work seamlessly with other CAD Tools using SOLIDWORKS 2017 3D Interconnect [WEBINAR]

Javelin Tech Tips

During the webinar we will review many of the new features and techniques including: How to maintain direct integration of native CAD files from PTC ® Creo ® , Autodesk ® Inventor ® , Siemens ® NX, SolidEdge ® , and CATIA ® , and treat them like native components.

How to convert CAD to STL for 3D Printing

Javelin Tech Tips

A STL is a triangulated representation of a 3D CAD model, an example is shown below: Solid test Facet normal 0 1 0 Outer loop Vertex 0 4 0 Vertex 0.517638 3.93185 0 Vertex 0.5 The triangulation of a surface will cause faceting of the 3D model. Fine STL file produces a smoother model.

CAD-TO- STL file Instruction sheet

3D Rapid Pro

This format approximates the surfaces of a solid model with triangles. For a simple model such as the box shown in figure 1, its surfaces can be approximated with twelve triangles, two on each side, as shown in figure 2.
