Thin wall and STL import/export

Hello everybody,

Can I draw .8mm (0.8mm)walls with the Shapr3D app?

When,please when will the import/export STL files come available?(tomorrow?)

I’m asking,because I would realy like to begin using the IPad pro app in the future for 3D printing.




You certainly can draw 0.8mm walls and STL export is already available :slight_smile:
Stl import is coming in 2018 hopefully.

Thank you for the fast reply Daniel…

2018 would be great…Especially on the first of january.(haha)

Happy new year.

Until we are ready with STL import, you can use other services to convert STL to STEP. And you can import STEP to Shapr3D directly.

To convert STL to STEP:

  1. Download FreeCAD:
  2. Load STL to FreeCAD
  3. Convert to STEP format

You can find the detailed conversion steps here:

Load STEP to Shapr3D

  1. Install Shapr3D
  2. Import the STEP file

Takes a few extra steps, but it should work.


Thank you Gabor.

For thinking with me.

Greetings Robin

Thanks, Gabor.
Any ideas, anyhow, about a release date for the STL importer?
If you only want to work on an ipad pro… passing through a Pc or Mac for any STL file is a pain…
Great app, anyhow… i’d want to directly prepare here the files to 3d print with an Ultimaker 3x.

Hi - mesh import is something which is always on our mind. I can’t promise you anything, but hopefully happen mid-term, but no ETA.
