Avante Technology is introducing Emendo Cloud, a cloud-based automated STL File analysis & repair service. Targeted at engineers and professional designers, this high-performance repair service addresses three common problems with STL files, which are used for output to both subtractive and additive manufacturing systems:
The first is the need for high precision repair of single and multiple component STL files. Another is the ability to repair large and complex files quickly. Finally the ability to identify the cause of the errors to prevent repeating the same design error every time the user designs a new object.
“The growth of design workgroups and a more varied range of design software has created the need for more comprehensive repair and file analysis,” said Robert Zollo, President of Avante Technology. “Emendo Cloud delivers high precision repairs of the broader range of STL file types in use today. It also delivers precision repairs at the higher processing speeds cloud-based computing provides.”
Helping Engineers Understand CAD/STL Problems
By providing users three modes of viewing access to file errors by type and location, down to the individual facet level, Emendo Cloud helps engineers understand what to do in future designs to avoid such problems. Providing more detailed information on the internal details in multiple viewing modes (solid, translucent and wireframe) saves users time and frustration in improving their CAD designs for both CNC and 3D printing applications.
Users can simply drag an STL file to the Emendo Cloud upload box and the file is automatically uploaded, analyzed and displayed for more detailed viewing. The user can rotate and zoom in on the file in solid, translucent and wireframe views to facilitate locating errors and problem zones throughout the 3D file.
