Re: Slice to CAD File Software

I've been using NUAGES (it's freely downloadable from the web) to create
STL files from contour data, but the I've been having problems getting
valid STL files from it, and it requires a specific input format for the
contours, which is fully described in the help files, but is not a
standard slice format. It also can output DXF, VRML, OBJ, and some
other formats...I've never tried those. What is your input data format?
