Export Cura STL model into CAD

Recommended Posts

Posted · Export Cura STL model into CAD

Hi,

Anybody knows how to export from Cura a 3D model with the inner infill created?

I am creating a functional prototype. I started with a part simulated as a solid. However for obvious printing time reasons I decided to use infill parameters.

I want to export the model that Cura creates (and transforms to G-code) back to my CAD software to simulate it and validate it.

Thanks,

Inigo.

Hi DaHai8,

I did try to use the options about reverse code but it seems you can only get the outer shape in detail. The infill is not represented when you export it into stl and convert it back to a solid.

Thanks anyway.

I will write here if I find a tool to do it.
