How Renishaw Drastically Reduces the Need for STL File Healing

“Our collaboration with Spatial now allows us to not only perform high-quality healing on STL files but, more importantly, to import various CAD formats directly.”-- Stephen Anderson, Director of Group Software at Renishaw

Industry: Engineering and Scientific Technology

Product: 3D ACIS Modeler, 3d InterOp Translators

Challenges: Move away from an STL-centric file import process and its limitations while minimizing engineering effort

Solutions:Integration of 3D InterOp™ and the 3D ACIS® Modeler with CGM Polyhedra

• Eliminates transcription errors
• Enables model healing capability
• Paves the way to future CAD functionality
• Enables support for model-based engineering
