In a previous article, we demonstrated how to access the 3DEXPERIENCE Marketplace from within SOLIDWORKS in order to get parts quoted for manufacture. We can now use eDrawings Professional to get parts quoted using *.stl files. STL (stereolithography) format is one of the most common and universal file formats for 3D printing.
- Load the *.stl model in eDrawings and click on the icon shown below. If the button is available in a native eDrawings format file, it likely means that the STL information was included. In that case, simply save as *.stl and open in eDrawings.
- You will be asked to log in to the 3DEXPERIENCE Marketplace using your 3DEXPERIENCE ID. That will spawn this window:
- Choose Get a quote. Please note that decals or visible cosmetic thread appearances can prevent this from working. Try hiding them in the source model, or review SPR-567023 in the SOLIDWORKS Knowledge Base for other options.
- Go through the guided steps to select part properties, manufacturing specifications, quantity and delivery, service provider
