Today, most CAD systems can output good STL data or STL data with minor errors. The most common problem Rapid Prototyping users are facing is the build area size versus the STL model dimensions. DeskArtes Dimensions Expert gives you the tools to automatically repair and to split the STL data into separate pieces and accurately combine them after the build. This is typically achieved with software five to ten times more expensive.
Dimensions Expert functions include:

  • STL input and output

  • VRML input
  • Automatic model verify and repair
  • Manual model repair and edit
  • Model splitting and connecting
  • Platform definition and positioning
  • 3D viewing, transformation and measuring for STL models

For more information You can also have a look at the presentation video (19 minutes, 21 MB).

DeskArtes Dimensions Expert is part of a DeskArtes Expert Series family. Expert Series products range from View Expert, a basic 3D CAD viewer, to full rapid prototyping data preparation software 3Data Expert and to full freeform surface CAD system Design Expert. Dimensions Expert includes a subset of 3Data Expert commands. For a full set of features available in each Expert Series programs please have a look at the Expert Series feature list.

Save time and money by using Dimensions Expert for STL manipulation.

Dimensions Expert includes all necessary and easy to use tools to get from any STL model to a buildable STL part, regardless of the possible problems or size of the final part. Model verification tools tell you if the model is correct or not. In case of errors, automatic and manual repair tools can be used to fix them. After fixing the splitting tools can be used to cut the model into a suitable sized pieces for your machine build area. Positioning tools can then be used to position the parts into wanted build areas before sending them to the Rapid Prototyping machine.
