How to convert 3MF to WinCaps III (DENSO Robotics)?


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.

     

WinCaps III

WINCAPS III, by DENSO Robotics, is offline programming software which enables users to conveniently program a robot from a remote PC without operating the robot. DENSO is a leader and pioneer in manufacturing automation, including the design and manufacturing of industrial robot arms, since the 1960s.

Conversion from Okino software into WinCaps III is best done with the either VRML2 or DirectX file formats. If one has to be chosen over the other, VRML2 is a generally better file format than DirectX but both will convey the same data as required by WinCaps III.
