Merge two STL files

Recommended Posts

Posted · Merge two STL files

I use solidworks and have been trying to join two STL files together but this doesn't seem to work.

Does anyone know how this can be achieved. I'm wondering if perhaps I need to convert the STL files first.

What are you trying to do? Does it need any precision or do you just want two files printed at once?

If you're trying to position the parts precisely I guess I would try to import the STLs into two separate files as solids and then create an assembly of the two to position them and then export that assembly. But now that I think about it I seem to remember there being some issue with exporting assemblies to stl...hmm.

      Through this post I would like to further explain what we are doing, and what you could be doing. 
      Our efforts consist of 2 layers. First; connect medical institutions and hospitals to (local) 3D Printing hubs to help them print parts of which a 3D model already exists. And second, contribute to design the necessary part and then have it printed via a (local) 3D printing hub. Experts are available from within Ultimaker and from within our network of 3D printing experts.
