How to export FE-results for 3D Printing?

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,


I would like to export my FE-results in a file-format suitable for 3D-printing. Using a zPrinter, I´d like to illustrate stress-analysis by a real 3-model. Is there anyone who has some experience on that topic?


Here are some ideas of (possible) suitable file formats:


.wrl (VRML)




Thanks in adavance!


Best regards,

Rahul, youre the best. Thanks a million!

Unfortunately there is no option to export the color of the contour with the .vrml. Do you know something about this: Is there a way to do it? Are there plans in the future?

Personally I like the idea of colored prints with the stress contours for discussion or other things like presentations!

Best regards!

I don't see any future plan yet for this request .You can look in to below webinar links from Resource library for 3d printing.(Commercial customer can access)



You can also explore Microsoft Hololens for this request.
