How can I import STL model into solidworks?
Hi, Im going to design an mouse model for my customer. How can I import STL file into solidworks that I can trace the vertex when using 3dsketch?
I got file from the company Scan quet 3d : http://blogin3d.com/dich-vu-scan-3d-quet-mau-3d-tp-hcm
and stl file was retouch by zbrush!
You can import STL normally in SOLIDWORKS like STEP/IGES. But the model will have lot of polygons, A LOT! So the best method, if you want to reverse engineer is, either use the "Shaded View" and trace the outline like you want and work with surfaces. Or you can import you STL in FreeCAD and create a STEP file from it and work from there into SOLIDWORKS.
Also I do not understand the attached image. Is it a box or case? And are you modelling a mouse?
check it out in youtube. it will be easier to understand compare to wordings.
and here is the link.
all the best.
