Get your hands dirty and fire up laser cutters, CNC machines, and 3D printers! You can now export your sketches in SVG format (for 2D manufacturing) and models in 3MF format (for 3D printing).
Note: You can export low-res 3MF in Shapr3D Free, and hi-res 3MF and SVG in Shapr3D Standard and Business. FYI, it’s time you abandon STL and only use 3MF for 3D printing. Unlike STL, 3MF contains all necessary data — units, surface geometry, mesh topology, textures and other characteristics, and more — for printing in a single sleek package.
Plus, we packed some other medal-worthy updates so make sure you install the latest update!
- Repositioning or translating a 2D sketch item is simpler in this version. Before, you had to click an element — like an endpoint or center point — once and then click it again to start dragging it elsewhere. Now, you only have to click the item once.
- Here’s a pick-me-up for SpaceMouse users. You can select different navigation modes for the SpaceMouse — camera and object. You can find more details here. Go to View > Navigation Mode and choose the setting that’s most comfortable for you.
If you want to lock the horizon while you navigate the design space, enable Keep Horizon Level.
- We gave the app a summer glow-up and got rid of those blips that sometimes showed up on edges and section views.
