Save MathCAD 3d plotdata as iges setp files etc

Save MathCAD 3d plotdata as iges setp files etc

Save MathCAD 3d plotdata as iges setp files etc

I have made a 3d plot using CreateMesh plot routine in Mathcad 14
Now I need to convert this 3D plot data to .stl for 3D printing

But Mathcad does not have such an option to save file as .stl format
So I was asked by 3D printer services to save the 3D plotdata as .iges or .step or .stp format. A roundabout way to get the 3D printing accomplished.

Can any one help me here?

Can Mathcad CreateMeah 3D plotdata be saved in any form of CAD format?

RE: Save MathCAD 3d plotdata as iges setp files etc

I doubt it but if you look at the IGES file spec I think you will be able to create one in Excel from your data.

An alternative would be to import a point cloud into a CAD program and write it out from there.
