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.
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 and Boolean as well as STL coloring and texturing. Basic supports can be generated for both Stereolithography and metal processes. With the latest 64 bit implementation models with millions of triangles can be handled reliably. Prepared models can be sent directly to the receiving process using the new Plugin interface. 3Data Expert is the 3D data processing tool you need to get your AM business running.

Create 3D Text and join geometries
Additive Manufacturing processes allow you to build several parts at once. Adding 3D Text will help to brand a model or to tell apart the models when ready from the machine. With 3Data Expert you can add 3D Text mark-ups to recognize parts from each other. Also, primitive and freeform geometries can be generated for support or to add new features to the original part.
Advanced cutting functions
Medical and engineering processes may require very specific tools to cut models or to drill holes for fixtures or connectors. Cut and Hole Tools available with 3Data Expert enable most delicate Boolean operations with user defined surfaces even with complex model geometries.
Re-triangulate faceted models
3Data Experts fast triangle decimation and aspect ratio improving functions allow you to prepare 3D faceted files for any simulation system effectively. Detailed user control over the reduction results guarantee the optimal simulation result. Triangle refine, reduce and smoothing functions allow you to prepare sparsely triangulated models from CAD systems to scanned data for accurate simulation or manufacturing.
Sim Expert is a dedicated tool for preparing 3D models for Simulation applications with triangle count reduction and triangle aspect ratio improvement functions. DeskArtes Expert Series STL model repair technology is fully available with Sim Expert to prepare faceted models for accurate simulation.
Optionally, you can add 3D CAD Import Translators to triangulate and auto-repair standard and native 3D CAD models Simulation applications. Import translators include STEP, CATIA 4/5/6, CATIA CGR, NX Unigraphics, SolidWorks, Solid Edge, Inventor, JT and Creo/ProE input formats with new optimized triangulation for simulation applications.
