STL Interface



The STL output interface outputs an STL data file from an ANSYS ICEM CFD unstructured surface mesh.

Creating the STL Input File

Under the Output menu, go to Select solver, and select the STL format.  Then select Write Input.   A window opens to allow the specification of the file to be translated into the STL format.  An existing unstructured domain file representing a surface mesh must first be selected (3 points triangles or 4 points quadrilateral elements).   In addition, the output interface offers the options to define the name of the STL file, to shift the mesh into the positive space, and to select the file format (ASCII or binary).   The default name for the STL file can be modified as necessary.

The interface generates the STL file in the current project directory.
