Model & Material Management
What file formats are accepted by 3YOURMIND?

We work with the file formats stl, obj, dae, wrl, ply, 3ds, step and iges.

In addition, multicolor models can be uploaded as a zip archive. (see next question for more details)
How do I upload multi-color files.

To upload a file with multicolored texture, you will need to upload your model file along with the texture file in a .zip package. Compatible file formats are obj, wrl, ply and 3ds.

The color information may be stored in three different ways:

  • using a texture file (image file)
  • with color per vertex (RGB values)
  • with color per face (RGB values)
How can I share my 3D file with others?

You can share your 3D file using a direct link or using our social platform integrations with Facebook, Twitter, Google+ or Part cloud.

To share your 3D file:

  1. Click to the Viewer and select on "Share and Set Permissions" (lower right)
  2. Now select the way you want to share under "who has the link".
  3. Now you can either copy and paste the link or post directly into your social media stream.
How do I know which material is right for my 3D printing?
Each 3D model has special requirements. First, read our materials descriptions for recommendations. If you still aren’t clear, contact one of our 3D printing experts.

3D models help us give a detailed impression of our products to potential customers.

Involving 3YOURMIND in our work flow allowed us to both produce high-quality models and to broaden our understanding of the possibilities of 3D printing.
