Tools by the devCad Team
DevStl Tools, the new application to create Molds and apply boolean
functions to STL files
devStl Tools is an application offered by the devCad
Team. It includes a collection of tools for Stl files, like
the creation of Molds and the boolean Union, Subtraction, Intersection
You can open Stl files created by devFus Mold, Profili Pro (in the near future
also from devWing Mold) or from other applications.
devStl Tools is a growing project, and will include more and more features...
The hobbyistic users of CNC machines and 3D printers often ask us for some
special features, generally available only in expensive professional 3D
packages (or not available at all).
As the commercial 3D software libraries available on the market are too poor or
far too expensive, we started 2 years ago to develop our own Stl 3D library.
This is a growing project, and new features and improvements will included as
long as we see a good interest of our users.
The actual version includes:
A Doctor feature to view info, preview and (try to) repair unvalid Stl files.
Simple Offset and Mirror function fo Stl files.
Functions to move, rotate and scale a single file stl or a set of them.
Splitting of a stl solid in two or more parts.
Automatic splitting of a stl solid in more parts to machine it in small CNC
machines or 3D printers.
Creation of regular solids.
Creation of Stl solids from a .p3D file of devFoam Pro. A license of devFoam
Pro is not required
Creation of Stl Rotation solids using a section drawn in devCad. A license of
devCad is not required
You can create cylindrical or toroidal solids, appling also an elliptical
Creations of Molds and plugs starting from a Stl file. A
special Wizard with a step by step approach lets you to create complex Molds of
different types, including the manual or automatic generation of reference
See below a picture as an example of what you can make with devStl tools in
just 1 minute:
Union, Subtraction, Intersection operations for Stl files. You
can open 2 Stl files and apply in a very easy way the Union, Subtraction,
Intersection operations, and see immediately the result.
See below a picture as an example of the 3D preview:
Actually the application is available as a Beta release. More functions will be
added as they are available, stay tuned!
To download devStl Tools see the Download
section of the web site.
To get a license of devStl Tools see the Prices section
of the web site. Or you can purchase a license of devFus Mold or devWing Mold, as these applications include devStl Tools
Other functions can be requested by users or by sponsors of the application.
