Hi . I need to get a .stl formate file for my geometry. Is it possible to export geometry file from CFX's DesignModeller as .stl format? or how can I convert a DesignModeller's geometry (.agdb or anyother ) into .stl file? any suggestion would be appreciated! MAB

You need to import first. Current import options are Nastran BDF, OBJ, mesh, dxf (3DFACE only). Once imported, you can export any object to STL TRI. includes auto bisect of quad surfaces.

Hi all,

I know this topic is a little old, but I have the same problem: I have a .agdb file (from Design Modeler) and need a STL file from this geometry. Did anybody do that?

Does anybody know how can I get this?

I try CAD Exchanger, but I had some topology problems.

Thanks in advance.

um... well, ICEM can write .stl files (file/export geometry), have you tried that?

Hi Lance,

Thanks for the reply.

Yes, I have tried ICEM. But when I open the STL file that I just exported from ICEM, I note topology problems.

My geometry has 2mm thickness, and when I open the STL file, this thickness disappear.

Do you know the probably reason for that?

Maybe the triangles in the triangulation are larger than 2mm? I guess that would remove your thickness.
