File Production And Conversion



Scan with the Einscan 2X plus, this then creates a surface file, known as an STL. When the 3D scan is complete the Einscan software gives 2 options to mesh the surfaces:

  • Watertight: The file is totally enclosed and any missing surfaces filled to produce a watertight looking object
  • Non watertight:  saves the file as is, so can then be modified later

Non watertight files are the surface files only, Watertight can be saved as an STL then used to 3D print or using some clever software……..




Within a click of a button the Einscan software exports the file directly to SolidEdge shinings 3D edition. This very clever software then easily converts the STL file to a Solid 3D CAD file


Now the easy bit.

The file is now converted to STEP, IGES,  or any other 3D CAD file of choice, ready to upload to Solidworks, Autodesk inventor etc, for modification, measurements, stress analysis and more.
