SpaceClaim for 3D Printing

SpaceClaim for 3D Printing

SpaceClaim’s intuitive interface allows users to create, edit, and prepare models for 3D printing faster and more efficiently than before. With a new module, we upgraded functionality to allow users to work directly with STL files as well as leverage automated many prep tools for 3D printing applications.

Key Benefits for 3D Printing

  • Repair models from problems you typically run into during the printing process
  • Easily shell models to minimize waste
  • Scale models
  • Save money on expensive 3D printing software
  • Split models for better printing, adding pins, lips, mortise, or joints as needed
  • Save and export STL

Benefits of STL Prep Module

  • Work directly with STL files to shell, scale, and split models
  • Automated verification and repairing STL: intersections, watertightness, misaligned normals, co-incident triangles, etc
  • Combine STL models with other STL models or solids
  • Decimation/reduction
  • Quickly create mid-surface models for mold simulation
  • Edit mold geometry directly in the cross section

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's intuitive interface, speed, and ability to work with any major 3D format into the 3D printing world.
