3Data Expert is a professional tool for preparing 3D models for Additive Manufacturing and Simulation applications. There are several commands for manipulation of both 3D surface models and 3D faceted models. These commands include surface triangulation, STL verification and repair, STL offsetting, splitting, connecting, decimation, smoothing, shrink wrap, nesting and Boolean as well as STL coloring and texturing. Sand Supports can be generated for deliate sand parts.
3Data Expert Support Structure beta program gives you free access to professional support struture generator for metal, DLP and Sterolithoraphy processes. See more at Support Structure beta program. 3Data Expert includes the same powerful viewing, measuring and communication tools available with the free View Expert. Some of the more advanced functions are described below. Optionally, you can purchase 3D CAD Import Translators to triangulate and auto-repair standard and native 3D CAD models for 3D Color Printing, Additive Manufacturing and Simulation applications. Import translators include STEP, CATIA 4/5/6, CATIA CGR, NX Unigraphics, SolidWorks, Solid Edge, Inventor, Parasolid, JT and Creo/ProE formats. Conversion keeps original assembly colors (not textures) for 3D Color Printing and can generate optimized triangulation for simulation applications. Color models can be reliably transferred to 3D Color Printing preparation software modules 3DEdit Pro, ZEdit Pro and ColourIT via DeskArtes native file format .3de.
