Mesh To Solid for AutoCAD is a polygon mesh to 3d solid conversion plug-in for AutoCAD. This plug-in gives AutoCAD the ability to convert a mesh into a solid. Mesh To Solid for AutoCAD adds several commands along with a menu which houses them.
Meshes are often used to describe closed solid or open surface objects. However, general solid modeling software do not have methods to manipulate or modify mesh objects. Solid modeling operations such as boolean operations (add, subtract, intersect), extrude, offset, fillet, chamfer, rib, draft, shell, hollow, etc. are possible only with solid or surface objects. Moreover, there is no way to convert a mesh into a solid so that the solid modeling operations can be carried out on it. Mesh To Solid for AutoCAD solves this problem by giving you the ability to convert a mesh to a solid.
Apart from processing meshes in the active AutoCAD drawing, Mesh To Solid for AutoCAD can read mesh objects from the following file formats:
Stereolithography files (*.stl)
Wavefront files (*.obj)
OpenNURBS files (*.3dm)
3D Studio files (*.3ds)
Mesh To Solid for AutoCAD is designed to be extremely user friendly and easy to understand. To convert a mesh into a solid simply run the ConvertMesh command and select the meshes you wish to convert.
Mesh To Solid for AutoCAD adds new commands to AutoCAD. All the commands start with "MS" (stands for Mesh To Solid) to distinguish them from other AutoCAD commands and commands added by other plug-ins. These commands are housed in a new menu called "Mesh To Solid" which is added to the AutoCAD menu. The commands added are:
MSConvertMesh - Convert a mesh into a solid
MSConvertMeshFile - Convert a mesh in an external file into a solid
MSOptions - Display Mesh to Solid for AutoCAD options
MSHelp - Display the Mesh To Solid for AutoCAD help file
MSRegister - Register your copy of Mesh To Solid for AutoCAD
MSAbout - Display the Mesh To Solid for AutoCAD About box
