Oliver and RP'ers

        We use SDRC Ideas VGX Core/Cavity Software to quickly create core cavity and partingline data for Injection Molds. I know there are a few software tools that work with STL files but we prefer to Split the Core/Cavity in the original CAD system so that the same partingline data can be used for the production tool and the Rapid prototype tools. We provide this service and would be happy to take a look at your 3D Data.

    Hi RP'ers
    I have an application where I want to create cavities, cores and split
    lines from STL data quickly and easily.
    What software should I be looking to buy? I want to RP the cavities not mill them.
    Is it realistic to use STL data or should I be using something else?
    As usual all responses gratefully recieved.
