Recommended Export Settings from CAD Programs

Valid for:

Desktop Series, Industrial Series


Do you recommend any export settings from CAD (Computer Aided Design) programs to import to Eiger?

Choosing your CAD program's "fine" or "medium" resolution STL export should work. For higher surface finish, use 1 degree angular deviation, 0.1mm chordal tolerance, and 0.1mm minimum facet width.

Further decreasing these numbers is not necessary, as it may push your file size above our practical limit of 20MB. It will also make your part resolution below the print system capability. Additionally, any STL above 20MB may cause extended upload times and the potential for upload failure.
