CCM+ Surface Wrapper Export
 
Hello,

I am trying to use the surface wrapper to repair a piece of geometry and then export that as a standard file type (.stl, .igs, etc...). Is there any way that I can do this with CCM+ or do I need some sort of intermediate software to complete this export.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks,

Ross Kippenbrock

Re: CCM+ Surface Wrapper Export
 
IGS is geometry, but wrapper does does triangulated geometries. So to get IGS out of that geometry reconstruction is essential. No way to to with ccm+.

Export to triangular formats (like stl) may work with ccm+. However up to 2.08 only possilbe export was adapco database format. However this may have changed.

Regards.

Ross,

Right click on Representations -> Wrapped Surface and go to "Export Surface"

Many formats are available including .stl. As BastiL said since the wrapper creates a discrete triangle mesh, .igs will not work.
