How to convert 3MF to ArtiosCAD (ESKO)?


PolyTrans|CAD+DCC performs mathematically precise CAD, DCC/Animation, GIS and BIM 3D file conversions into all key downstream 3D packages and file formats. Okino software is used and trusted throughout the world by many tens of thousands of 3D professionals in mission & production critical environments, backed by respectable personal support directly from our core development team.

     

3MF

3MF, 3D Manufacturing Format, is a modern replacement for the legacy STL (StereoLithography) file format with an explicit focus on the proper transmission of CAD and non-CAD model data for 3D printing as well as to downstream services and platforms. From Okino's long term perspective, the VRML2 file format was and is "just as good" for such requirements but never had the correct understanding nor traction since its introduction in 1995.

Features of 3MF over the legacy STL format includes: geometry instancing support, layered texture maps, multiple layers of UV texture coordinates, vertex colors and extended material types.

History, features, overviews, implementation partners and more can be read on the 3MF Consortiumís web site.

Note: Microsoft Windows uses the 3D Manufacturing Format (.3mf) for all 3D printing tasks.

Please also refer to the 3MF export converter for more information related to 3MF.

     

ArtiosCAD

ArtiosCAD is stated to be the world's most popular structural packaging design editor. It has tools specifically designed for packaging professionals for structural design, product development, virtual prototyping and manufacturing. ArtiosCAD is the ideal product for all corrugated, folding carton and POP, POS, FSDU display designers.

While ArtiosCAD has some basic CAD importers, it does not have the plethora of interoperability file formats offered by Okino software, and of the depth and breadth of our converters. Conversions occurs from the Okino source of CAD, DCC and VisSim file formats into ArtiosCAD via the Okino Collada exporter. This pipeline has been well tested and used in production environments by mutual ArtiosCAD customers.
