Hello everyone,

Can someone please tell me what CAD software to use so that it can exports a certain file extension, that Shapeways can directly use it without having to correct its geometry?

Thanks in advance

Sry

Just what do other people perfer to create their work with?

I use to use AutoCAD back around 2000 but now I have to use a free program. Please only reply or vote if you use legal software. I'm a software engineer so I frown upon pirating software.

None of the above Confused

Mainly, I use Imagine (IFW)2.0, occasionally Sculptris and even less often, Wings3D - even when modelling in Wings or Scupltris, I'll start with a base model from Imagine and convert the file using Accutrans3D. I'll also use NetFabb Basic for cheking the model and correcting any errors before upload.
