Cara Eksport File CAD ke Format STL

Untuk dapat di 3D print dan memulai proses Rapid Prototyping, kami membutuhkan file dalam bentuk STL.

Dibawah ini adalah cara untuk export dari file native CAD Anda ke format STL.

Lalu setelah dalam format STL, Download program seperti: FREE STL ViewerOpen Source STL View, atau NetFabb jika anda belum memiliki program modelling 3D

 

Alibre

  1. File > Export
  2. Save As > STL
  3. Enter Filename
  4. Save


AutoCAD

  1. At the command prompt type “FACETRES”
  2. Set FACETRES to 10 (FACETRES value from 0.1 to 10, the higher the number, the better the details)
  3. Type “STLOUT”
  4. Select the objects
  5. Enter Y or hit Enter for Create a binary STL file? [Yes/No]
  6. Enter Filename
  7. Save

  4. Select Binary
    1. Click Export
    2. Enter Filename
  5. Click Save


Blender

  1. File > Export > STL…
  2. Enter Filename
  3. Select location

Cadkey / KeyCreator

  1. File > Export > STL
  2. Enter Filename > OK
  3. In the options dialog:
    1. Change Format to Binary

Catia

Export ke format STL hanya dapat di lakukan di Part Design.

Jika ingin export assemblu (CATProduct) kedalam satu file STL, maka harus di convert ke format Assembly Design Environment seperti dibawah ini:

  1. Select the entire product tree
  2. Tools > Generate CATPart from Product
  3. Enter New Part number
  4. Do NOT check: Merge all bodies of each part in one body
  5. OK

Sekarang, dapat di export ke CATPart di Part Design.

Akurasi dari file STL tergantung kepada Display Accuracy. Pertama kita harus setting Display Accuracy

  1. Tools > Options…
    1. In the tree select General > Display
    2. Select the Performance tab
    3. Under 3D Accuracy select Fixed
    4. Set to 0.02 mm (0.0008 in)
    5. Adjust Curves’ accuracy ratio to 0.2
    6. OK
  2. File > Save As
  3. Enter Filename
  4. Select type stl
  5. Save


Creo Direct (Creo Elements/Direct, CoCreate, OneSpace, SolidDesigner)

  1. File > Save
  2. Press Select > select the objects (or click All Objects)
  3. Select File Type STL (*.stl)
  4. Click Options
    1. Check Binary
    2. Max Deviation Distance: enter 0.025 mm (0.001 in)
    3. Angle: enter 30°
  5. Enter Filename
  6. Save


Creo Parametric (Creo Elements/Pro, Pro/ENGINEER)

  1. File > Save a Copy
  2. Select type STL > OK
  3. Select Coordinate System Standard
  4. Check Binary
  5. Set Chord Height to 0 (Pro/E changes it to the smallest allowable value)
  6. Leave Angle Control at the default
  7. Enter Filename > OK


Google Sketchup

Google Sketchup tidak bisa export ke format STL secara native, makan Anda memerlukan plugin. Berikut adalah beberapa pilihan:

  1. CADspan plugin
  2. Convert Sketchup SKP files to DXF or STL
  3. Sketchup to CNC
  4. STL for Sketchup (stl4su) plugin

Atau, Anda bisa juga export ke format .dae, lalu buka Meshlab atau Blender dan import file .dae yang tadi telah di save.
