Re: STL to STEP Lossless

Looks like I'll be doing what the previous comments said, ask the client why he specifically wants STP files if it's for 3D printing.

Re: STL to STEP Lossless

All what is needed to make the mesh 3d printable is that it is a solid . Solid means that the mesh is watertight, i.e. it mustn't contain any triangles with an edge that has no adjacent triangle (boundary edges). Or in other words it mustn't contain any holes. If your client insists on getting a ST...

Re: STL to STEP Lossless

If the end goal is 3D printing then going to a STEP solid is a needless, useless and wasteful intermediary step, because 3D printing still relies on meshes, the STEP file would have to be converted back to STL. There must be a different reason why your client wants a STEP file. This is what he sent...

Re: STL to STEP Lossless

I honestly do not know what his plan is, but I'm assuming it's to make 3D printed dentures that can function as he told me that last time. https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/268911855173369856/574056865520943105/image1.jpeg https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/268911855173369856/57405686366312...

Re: STL to STEP Lossless

Good Evening guys, First of all, I want to heavily heavily apologize for coming back after like half a month, the reason why I didn't reply was because I discovered a dos program that at least let me convert stl to stp files but sadly I still got the same result. I actually gave up and sent it to my...

STL to STEP Lossless

Hi guys, I'm a 3D Artist who was given the task of converting an STL (3D Scanned) file to STEP file. I successfully created it into a solid file to be used, and I always reach the same problem. My new step (or igs) file almost always becomes lower quality after the conversion and I want to ask, how ...
