Import Pro/e Files In Maxwell

Recommended Posts

Guest gabbrielli

Hi everybody

 

I did same test with maxwell and I discover that is grate, until now everything looks good, but I’ve got a problem.

 

I work with pro/e and the best way to export in Maxwell should be STL , but the result is not very good (with the minimum chord and angle), and in Pro/e during the concept design the surfaces are open and is not possible to generate STL.

 

Solid works has Maxwell like plugin, what is the best way to export pro/e files in Maxwell ?

 

Ciao

You might need to think about fixing your surfaces so they form a closed object, that is a priority.

It is never good having open surfaces anyway.

 

Once that is done you can export youre entire assembly as a single wavefront (OBJ) file. Use 0 as chord and 1 as angle control.

Importing this single OBJ file of your Pro E assembly imports all your assembly files in one go.

This means you don't need to export each part as a STL seperately, resulting in 20 odd parts.

 

You might have to adjust the smoothing though but for me it has been good.
