How to convert STL to STEP using FreeCAD

73 22 Beginner
This tutorial covers how to convert an STL to a STEP using FreeCAD. Note: Since STLs are meshes, the resulting model won't be as precise as parts originally made as solids. FreeCAD can export: - Step - Iges - Scad - Dxf - Dwg - Obj - Pdf And many others…

Simplification Surface and Surface Mesh

4 0 Beginner
https://youtu.be/XQ0Q6M66ToM This tutorial shows you how to transform a multi-patches surface into a clean surface. With the surface simplification functionality, you can merge patches together and obtain a proper surface. Combined with the healing feature, you fill the small gaps and connect all the patches together. To verify if the surface you can offset it to see if it is fully healed. The final step is to open the SIMULIA Structural Model Creation application, to mesh the surface and see why is it useful to clean the surface first.

Car wheel rim finite element analysis

4 1 Beginner
Learn how to use SesamX, Salome and FreeCad to create a finite element simulation of a car wheel rim. This tutorial is composed of 4 steps: 1) How to prepare the rim geometry for meshing using FreeCad. 2) How to mesh the rim using Salome. 3) How to analyze the rim deformation using SesamX. 4) And how to visualize the results using Salome. You can consult the detailed wheel rim tutorial for a deeper presentation: https://www.sesamx.io/doc/tutorials/car_wheel_rim The geometry used for this tutorial is provided by Henry: https://grabcad.com/library/car-rim-132
