Publisher description for Mesh To Solid for AutoCAD
Mesh To Solid for AutoCAD is a polygon mesh to 3d solid conversion plug-in for AutoCAD. This plug-in gives AutoCAD the ability to convert a mesh into a solid. Mesh To Solid for AutoCAD adds several commands along with a menu which houses them. Meshes are often used to describe closed solid or open surface objects. However, general solid modeling software do not have methods to manipulate or modify mesh objects. Solid modeling operations such as boolean operations (add, subtract, intersect), extrude, offset, fillet, chamfer, rib, draft, shell, hollow, etc. are possible only with solid or surface objects. Moreover, there is no way to convert a mesh into a solid so that the solid modeling operations can be carried out on it. Mesh To Solid for AutoCAD solves this problem by giving you the ability to convert a mesh to a solid. Mesh To Solid for AutoCAD can read mesh objects from the following file formats: Stereolithography files (*.stl) Wavefront files (*.obj) OpenNURBS files (*.3dm) Besides converting a mesh into an AutoCAD 3D solid object, Mesh To Solid for AutoCAD also has the ability to export a mesh to an ACIS file (*.sat). This SAT file can then be imported into other solid modeling software.
