Learn how to convert STL to Intergraph Smart 3D with CAD Exchanger
STL (STereoLithography) is a file format native to the stereolithography CAD software. This file format is supported by many other software packages; it is widely used for rapid prototyping, 3D printing and computer-aided manufacturing. STL files describe only the surface geometry of a three-dimensional object without any representation of color, texture or other common CAD model attributes. The STL format specifies both ASCII and binary representations. Binary files are more common, since they are more compact.
Intergraph Smart 3D, the most advanced plant design software offered in two decades, is Intergraph’s next generation, data-centric, rule-driven solution for streamlining engineering design processes while preserving existing data and making it more usable/re-usable. A fundamental component of Intergraph’s SmartPlant Enterprise, Smart 3D is a complementary, full-suite solution that provides all the capabilities needed to design a plant, and then keep it as built throughout its life cycle.
Need to work with CAD files in numerous formats? No worries.
