File export

Recommended Posts

I use a mac. How do I export a file from Autodesk to Cura for printing on a Printrbot.

Autodesk can export these file types:

IGES (.igs .iges)

SAT (.sat)

SMT (.smt)

STEP ( .stp .step)

Archive Files (.f3d)

Curt uses .stl files ???

Autodesk has a whole bunch of different products that could be used for 3D printing - from TinkerCAD, 123 Design, Fusion360, Maya, Inventor, AutoCAD etc. pp.

Which Autodesk Software are you using?

Here are 4 Autodesk products i am using:

a) Fusion 360: use the Make > 3D Print from the Toolbar, uncheck "Send to 3D Print Utility" to save to STL - or try if you can send to your slicer as "Custom" utility.

b) 123 Design: Export to 3D > STL or: select the part and click "Export Selection"

c) TinkerCAD: File > Download for 3D Printing

d) MeshMixer: File > Export

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
