SpaceClaim announced the immediate availability of 2014 Service Pack 1, which includes two new tools for SpaceClaim Engineer 2014: LiveReview, SpaceClaim’s cloud-enabled live 3D collaboration system (formerly codenamed “Connect”), and a new STL Prep for 3D Printing module.
LiveReview provides a secure session where more than one user can engage and contribute simultaneously to editing a model in real time. It is accessible through any WebGL-capable browser on a computer or mobile device. Even engineers without any 3D modeling software can actively review, edit or model live online, the company says. Every SpaceClaim customer currently on active subscription will have early access to LiveReview for six months.
STL Prep for 3D Printing module prepares models for 3D printing by offering a set of tools to repair printing problems and to modify STL and CAD files. Engineers can use the module to check for and repair water-tightness and intersections, to shell models to save on material, and to create connecting features in order to combine parts of a model after printing. STL Prep for 3D Printing also works with OBJ, CGR, and AMF file formats. STL Prep is an add-on module to SpaceClaim Engineer.
