Create 3D models cost effectively for 3D printing

For 3D printing, models can be created with free CAD software and then converted into 3D STL format

(PresseBox) (Moers, ) A 3D printer, with the help of a computer, is capable of creating real objects from a 3D CAD model. For a 3D print, a 3D model is created as, for example, a Stereo Lithography (STL) format file. The STL format is accepted by the majority of 3D printers and online print services. The 3D model can be created either with commercial 3D CAD software or with a free CAD application such as MEDUSA4 Personal.

Models for the 3D printing

CAD Schroer now offers an online converter for free CAD software, which enables the export of 3D models into STL format and their subsequent application to 3D printing.

Ready for the 3D print

MEDUSA4 Personal offers a comprehensive range of functions for 2D design. At the same time, the free CAD software includes a 3D module with which complex 3D models can be created quickly and easily from several 2D views. The possibilities offered by 3D-model creation from 2D are increasingly convincing more users worldwide. Therefore, CAD Schroer has now made available a STL converter in their service portal CSG eSERVICES.

Flexibly applicable 3D models

A 3D model created in MEDUSA4 Personal can now be uploaded to CSG eSERVICES for conversion into STL format for only € 4.99. Users of MEDUSA4 Personal now have the opportunity to cost-effectively translate a 3D CAD design into a 3D printed object.

Use MEDUSA4 Personal for the creation of 3D

The free CAD software MEDUSA4 Personal can be downloaded from the CAD Schroer homepage. From there, you can easily get to the STL converter by a link to the CSG eSERVICES portal. The conversion of 3D models from MEDUSA4 Personal to STL allows the user into the 3D design. The created model files can, for example, be displayed on a web page, or printed as 3D models on a 3D printer to produce working prototypes.
