3D-CAD Models

Processing of External CAD Data

This extension just comprises software  – A dedicated input filter reads in STL files. An STL file describes triangulated surfaces in a three-dimensional Cartesian coordinate system. It is widely used for rapid prototyping, 3D printing and computer aided manufacturing.

The BioScaffolder 3.1 software allows to define inner “scaffold-” structures whereas the STL file brings in just surfaces. Like with the built-in scaffold generator, up to three different materials and different pore sizes can be assigned to the CAD model.
