Dear Mr. Ferrotto,DeskArtes has a software called 3Data Expert which
offsets any STL model - even an open surface to create it a thickness.

The software can be downloaded at, and you can request
for a 30 day trial.

For Unix workstations DeskArtes supplies a similar software called Rapid
Tools, and trials can be requested at

Best regards
