When it comes to learning the art and science of CATIA stl to model, it is critical to understand the dos and don’ts of the whole process

Opening any CATIA stl file is not all that difficult, provided you know how that is. First, you might need an RE2 license. Once you have that then you will need to go right back to the “Digitized Shape Editor” in its own environment. After that, it will be time to Insert and then Import the critical file. As a matter of fact, such surface creation can also be done relatively quickly and what it more the file can actually work in a “Quick Surface Reconstruction” runtime environment as well.

It is also possible to use the ‘Digitized Shape Editor command by clicking on its icon and then subsequently importing the required stl file (or files as the case may be). Apart from that, it is also possible to create a CATIA mesh from the same file if it is so required.  This file can also be suitably modified as well in the case, just in case it requires and further smoothing and decimation as well. After that, the same file can later on, be exported right back to stl too.

It is pertinent to note here that whenever anyone needs to export a file from stl to CATIA in any CAD package, it is possible to see the various parameters for important things like deviation, chord height, poly count, angle tolerance, or something similar, along with those lines. As a matter of fact, all of these points will become the various parameters that will in the long run also affect the faceting of the Stl file. This is because of the fact that stl is the most common standard file type that is typically used by many if not most manufacturing systems that require additives, so as to be able to model the various parts and components that need to be constructed via CAD / CAM processes.

We at CAD / CAM Services are the proven experts in CATIA design services and can also help you in transferring different types of stl files to CATIA for your modeling needs. Apart from that we also provide the best CATIA Drafting services as well as the utilization of the CATIA models Library for our esteemed clientele.  For more information and also to get any sort of relevant to get feedback on any project that you may have in mind, please contact us.  Our friendly and knowledgeable experts will be more than happy to help you in any way they can with reference to the CATIA library.
