Rapid Tools allows one to add patterns such as dates to an existing STL part.
This is achieved using the boolean operations capabilities. Different STL
models can be combined using union, intersection, and exclusion operators.
Additionally, objects like dates can be designed and created within Rapid Tools
without the need to move to another software package.
