Exporting 3D

By July 9, 2012September 11th, 2012No Comments

Exporting 3D objects enables you the ability to 3D print, transfer objects from program to program, collaborate with multiple other 3D modelers and countless other possibilities. While there is a wide range of 3D file formats available to export in Rhino, in this video, we’ll be going over five:

  • STEP – Great for submitting to engineers or those who use Solidworks.
  • 3DS – Flexible and light, this is a great file for sending to polygonal modeling programs like Max, Cinema 4D and others.
  • OBJ – Another pretty universal file format. Opens great in Cinema 4D, Modo, Z-Brush among others.
  • DAE – Collada file. This is a file that SketchUp touts as an export.
  • STL – STereoLithography – The file format that is wonderful for 3D printing.
