DeskArtes Expert Series version 9.1 - User Friendly Data Manipulation for 3D Printing and Additive Manufacturing.

3Data Expert is DeskArtes' solution for manufacturing engineers needing to efficiently create and manipulate faceted and surface models for 3D Printing, Rapid Prototyping, Additive Manufacturing, Simulation, and Analysis. DeskArtes continues to add new, useful and robust functions into 3Data Expert to help professionals around the world to get the most of their Additive Manufacturing systems. New commands, like Selection/Replace Tool, Smoothing and Volume Supports give additional confidence to tackle even the most difficult tasks with Additive Manufacturing. Simultaneously, existing commands and display are made faster enabling the manipulation of bigger 3D models.

Dimensions Expert is a special tool for preparing data for 3D Printing systems with smaller build area. Its data repair, splitting and connection capabilities as well as ease of use outperform the competition. New lap joint and free form split lines enable generating extremely robust joints between split parts, even with thin walls.

3Data Expert software converts surface data in IGES, CATIA, Pro/E, STEP and UGS files to solid STL, ZPR, PLY or VRML files. 3Data Expert as well as Dimensions Expert software products input and automatically repair various errors in STL, ZPR, PLY, 3DS, Collada, DXF, FBX and VRML files.

"DeskArtes 3Data Expert offers full set of tools for preparing 3D models for 3D Printing and Additive Manufacturing systems. New repair tools added with unique part selection and replace tools make the repair of most complex model, like architectural, very effective", notes Mr. Ismo Mäkelä, CEO of DeskArtes. "Dimensions Expert opens a new era with ease of use and set of functions in its price range, with repair, curved cutting planes and lap joint connection".
