Date: Fri Apr 14 2000 - 12:34:29 EEST - a new web service for RPWe regularly export stl files form
an ACIS based system (IronCAD) without any problems. Maybe you should point
your accusations at the implementer of the technology not the technology

  Nice, nice ....

  First Spatial (usw. Autodesk) must fix thier .STL generator in order to be
succesfull in RP. We regulary receive .STL models from Mech.Desktop wich are
a real disaster to handle/repair, and often can't be used for running on our
Genisys FDM.

  Anyone experienced these kind of problems too? We now usually export the
ACIS-kernel-format and switch it to Parasolid-kernel-format (Vero
Visi-series) If we then make a .STL export, in 9 of 10 time a correct .STL
file is made.

  Kind regards,

    Check out the press release at

    which tells all about the new web-based service for the
rapid prototyping industry. The site will streamline the RFQ process, allows
management and tracking of RFQs and easy transmission of design data to
chosen recipients. the site is currently under closed testing but will be
available over the next few weeks. All manufacturers and vendors wishing to
participate when the site goes live are welcome to send a message to to be included on the site.
