Polygonica functionality is ideally suited to making STL files ready for 3D printing.
The powerful algorithms inside Polygonica provide users with the necessary tools to create watertight models automatically.
Polygon meshes do not need to present a problem anymore; handling triangles is at the core of Polygonica’s advanced underlying technology.
Operations such as automatic mesh repair by closing holes, fixing self-intersecting triangles, reorienting triangles and removing noise shells are second nature to Polygonica.
Other useful features for 3D printing include inward and outward offsetting, slicing, remeshing, making comparison analysis and detecting features and collisions. Polygonica’s cutting-edge Boolean engine also enables features such as ray-tracing, offsetting and mesh analysis.
Polygonica Software used within GrabCAD Print from Stratasys
GrabCAD Print allows users to work with detailed views of the model, tray, and slice preview to make all the necessary adjustments before printing.
GrabCAD Print uses Polygonica for automatic repair of polygon meshes. Any damaged models get fixed automatically.
Reaching 3D Printing-ready status often presents a challenge and one of the bottlenecks comes from file preparation and optimisation. Polygonica offers functionality to overcome this process more efficiently through mesh offsetting, Boolean operations, and other mesh analysis functions.
