Dimensions Expert is a simple, economical and user friendly tool for STL repair and splitting for machines with a smaller build area. Dimensions Expert suites professional Additive Manufacturing users and hobbyists alike.
Today, most CAD systems can output good STL data or data with minor errors. The most common problem 3D Printing 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.
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 3D Printing machine.
Send models directly to printing through Plugin interfaces.
Dimensions Expert, like all new Expert Series products, include a new Plugin interface. Plugin interface allows you to generate direct links to your favorite 3D Printing or Additive Manufactuing systems. Once defined, Plugin commands allow you to send repaired 3D models to receiving system with a single mouse click.
Repair faceted 3D models
Dimensions Expert offers effective and user friendly repair tools for triangulated models. Models from different CAD systems, with or without colors, can be effectively repaired using both automatic and manual commands for Additive Manufacturing.
Split and connect large models
When the triangulated model is ready and repaired for AM processes, many times one problem still remains. The model may not fit into to the build area of the 3D Printing process in use. Dimensions Expert splitting and connection tools allow you to split and connect part halves accurately after the build.
