Hi there this is my first day on Shapr3D, and so far I’m very impressed.

However I cannot seem to find an assembly process, that being taking individual 3D models, and assembling them together. I could do it in Inventor, but I cannot find where to do it on this app?
Could someone please help me?


Hi @JAMIE, we don’t have assemblies yet. Currently the closest thing to assemblies is the Align tool, that allows you to accurately position two parts, but it won’t create constraints between the parts or a semantic assembly. We plan to implement assemblies in 2021.


Can’t wait :slightly_smiling_face:

That would be a good option when it’s available. However I worked out a work around, if you export the designs to a step file, and then open up one of the designs, you can import the designs that way. Worked very well for me.

I’m new on Shapr3D and the forum, but have years of experience on Pro-E and would like to help out on setting up Assembly structuring if possible. Or just give my 2 cents on how it might just want to be structured for best practice.

@JAMIE Yes that is a good way to bring multiple individual designs together. The only thing I would change about your workflow is instead of exporting “STEP” export “SHPR” instead and you will get much better fidelity.
