PrusaSlicer 2.5 beta1 is out and it can import STEP files directly!🧡 So you can skip exporting and sharing STLs completely when it comes to mechanical parts.

This page summarizes the projects mentioned and recommended in the original post on reddit.com/r/3Dprinting

Our great sponsors
  • InfluxDB - Build time-series-based applications quickly and at scale.
  • Sonar - Write Clean C++ Code. Always.
  • Zigi - Delete the most useless function ever: context switching.
  • Scout APM - Truly a developer’s best friend
  • PrusaSlicer

    G-code generator for 3D printers (RepRap, Makerbot, Ultimaker etc.)

  • OCCT

    Open CASCADE Technology (OCCT) is an open-source software development platform for 3D CAD, CAM, CAE. This is a clone of the official repository located on https://dev.opencascade.org/. Please use official development portal for registering issues and providing patches.

    They integrated OCCT, so they do now have code to read STEP as part of the code base. Yes, I am aware it is tessellated right now (which is the obvious first step to make it work), but that can be changed in future. Point is: they now have at least half of the necessary code available.

  • InfluxDB

    Build time-series-based applications quickly and at scale.. InfluxDB is the Time Series Data Platform where developers build real-time applications for analytics, IoT and cloud-native services in less time with less code.
