Convert solid, surface, polyface mesh to polygon mesh in AutoCAD

Automesher application for AutoCAD / BricsCAD / ZWCAD is able to convert any of 3D drawing entity ie. 3D solid, face, surface, smooth and polyface mesh into polygon mesh entity type. Polygon mesh entity is defined by a matrix of M and N vertices, similar to a grid consisting of columns and rows, with 256 size limit in each direction. This gives an advantage for polygon mesh entities to store a maximum of 65,536 vertices in comparison to polyface mesh which can store 32,767 points only.

Import and export STL, OBJ, 3DS, PLY, 3DM, SKP, IGES and STEP files

There is often a requirement to import into your base CAD platform either AutoCAD, BricsCAD or ZWCAD, a 3D model saved in external file format which is not handled by your DWG editor. Automesher addon comes with the solution to import and export many 3D file formats including STL, OFF, OBJ, 3DS, IV, PLY, VRML, 3DM, SKP, SAT, IGES, BREP and STEP in your native workspace.
