How to convert file formats, such as sldprt and sldasm files, to STEP, IGES, STL, Parasolid (.x_t), ACIS (.sat), JT, or VRML (.wrl)

How to 3D Print in Full Color (Part 3): Clear + Texture Together

23 5 Expert
This is the third in a series of tutorials to help printer operators who are NOT graphic artists get the absolute most out of their multi-color, multi-material 3D printers, like the Stratasys J750. We will cover how to create models with semi-transparent textures wrapped around curved, transparent bodies (taking advantage of a new slicer from Stratasys), and how to fix UV-mapping problems when wrapping 2D textures around 3D bodies goes wrong.

STLs and 3D Printing for PolyJet

19 0 Beginner
This tutorial is the first part of our series about how to prepare and optimize settings for mesh file types supported by GrabCAD Print (GCP). The tutorial explains the building blocks of 3D printing with PolyJet. We will explain the conversion process from a CAD file to an STL file and how to optimize it to achieve the best print results possible. Future tutorials in this series will then explain more advanced types of files and operations.

How to Convert .OBJ Files to VRML in Blender

12 1 Beginner
Note: As of Blender 2.80, the ability to export VRML files was removed. On the bright side, if you use GrabCAD Print, you can still export full color models by way of a .OBJ file! You can learn here: https://grabcad.com/tutorials/how-to-use-blender-3d-software-with-grabcad-print. If you are using an older version of Blender, this Tutorial will teach you how to take an .OBJ file and convert it to VRML format to prepare it for 3D printing.

OBJ Files for PolyJet

7 1 Beginner
In previous tutorials in this series, we explained the capabilities of STL and VRML files in 3D printing. In this tutorial, we will explain OBJ files and their expanded capabilities in addition to color, transparency, and bump.

VRML Files for PolyJet

7 0 Beginner
In our previous tutorial, we defined STLs and explained best practices for using them. In this tutorial, we will explain VRML files and their expanded capabilities beyond basic geometric representation.
