Is there a method to convert g-code to a cad model such as a solidworks part file? I want to do structural analysis including the infill patterns generated by Cura for my model. Any solution or ideas to create a custom solution would be much appreciated.
So a couple of months ago I came across a website called 3D Lab Print (a website where you can buy 3d printing models of famous aircraft) and I decided to print my own Edge 540, the same plane used in the red bull air race and commonly used in aerobatic competitions. I fell in love with the idea of modeling and printing my own plane at some point as a hobby to learn a variety of CAD softwares and learn a little more about aircraft design than I already do. I started my journey of modeling my plane a couple of weeks ago and am finally at the point where I am starting to import STL files into Cu
I want to take my 3D shape and put it with it's infill pattern into another programme such as Ansys so I can analyse it. When I save the file in Cura after slicing it and import it to any other programme it only shows the exterior shape and the infill pattern seems to disappear. Anyone got any solutions? Thank you.
Introduction Marco Polo, Christopher Columbus, Vasco da Gama, Amerigo Vespucci, James Cook. What do they all have in common, and what could they possibly be doing in a post related to 3D Printing and Generative Design? The obvious answer to what they have in common is that they were all explorers, many of them from an era known as The Age of Discovery. The reason they relate to this post is that Generative Design has been created for “design explorers” and it provides a method for navigating a route through to the discovery of the kind of design outcomes the like of whi
