How to convert Intergraph SmartPlant 3D to 3MF?


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.

     

Intergraph SmartPlant 3D

Intergraph SmartPlant 3D is Intergraph Process, Power & Marine's next-generation, data-centric, rule-driven solution for streamlining engineering design processes while preserving existing data and making it more usable/re-usable. A member of Intergraph's SmartPlant family of plant modeling software, SmartPlant 3D is a full suite of complementary software that provides all the capabilities needed to design a plant, and then keep it as-built throughout its life cycle.

Files can be exported from SmartPlant 3D as MicroStation DGN files and imported natively into Okino software via our dedicated DGN importer. It is also suggested that you read the related 'Tutorial: How to Import Massive DGN Files (PDMS Plants, Oil Refineries, etc)' section

     

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.
