STL Meshing and CAD Integration

MAVIS-FLOW can import surface models from most 3D CAD/CAM systems using the stereolithography (ASCII STL) file format enabling complete integration of manufacturing and production systems. The new STL assembly interface allows meshing and assembly of multiple STL files to produce complex casting and tooling geometry automatically

Solid models for simulation of solidification are automatically meshed from ASCII STL files with the STL translator.

For added flexibility the optional Solid View Pro software can be used to convert IGES/VDA CAD data into ASCII STL format for direct import into the MAVIS meshing software. Native file support is also available for CATIA, ProEngineer and Unigraphics
