Title: Export formats for Cubify Invent CAD package
Post by: Peter Gregory on July 16, 2013, 01:48:12 PM
I know I can export a gear design to STL, is there a way to export to any of the following formats?
STEP, IGES, SAT or Solidwork s.
The CAD software called Invent that builds STL print objects can import any of the above formats.
Thanks!

Hi Peter:

   As yet, no. I am working on doign that in future, but as yet, only STL type of data ( face based) can be output as
the main thrust at the time was for 3d printers that dont really require CAD data but shape data.
 It will likely be end of year before a format like .step will appear.

Thx
