 DesignCAD 3D MAX 2019’s new and improved features include:

  • 3D Print Check Tool – This new tool determines if an (exported STL) mesh is 3D printable or not. The result is based on the common tests used for 3D printability. General Information provided includes:  Number of Facets, Number of Edges, Min XYZ/Max XYZ extents, Length, Width, Height, Maximum Length, and Minimum Length.  This tool checks a part for common topological errors such as: non- manifold edges duplicated and collapsed facets, open edges, shells, Normal orientation and more.
  • 2D PDF Import PDF compatibility has been expanded to now include 2D PDF (vector) file import.  Previously, only 2D file export was supported. 
  • 3MF File Import and Export – 3MF is a new 3D printing format that allows design applications to send full-fidelity 3D models to a mix of other applications, platforms, services and printers. 3MF is an XML-based data format – human-readable compressed XML — that includes definitions for data related to 3D manufacturing, including third-party extensibility for custom data.
  • FBX Import and Export – FBX, Film Box, a popular 3D file format is one of the main 3D exchange formats as used by many 3D tools used in Digital content creation DesignCAD 2019.
