Rework in CAD .stl  

Trusted Member

i have some basic to advanced skills in CAD ( autodesk inventor).

but i have problems when i try to do some work on designs from others, and i have only STL files. how do you manage this?

All the usual design steps like do a sketch on a surface do not work, because the surface whitch is flat when you print it (and in original design i guess) isnt in a microscopic look. when importing the stl it is a very whobbly surface then. i even cant transform them into solid objects to 3d modelling them. any ideas?

Its always difficult working with just the stl models.  For gross changes I've just been modifying the meshes with Blender but I think Fusion360 has a mode designed to work with an imported stl.  How good that is I don't know.Also something like Meshmixer which is designed for modifying meshes might work.
