3D printer file format settings?

Are there any special settings in TS that need to be adjusted for exporting in TS to .STL file formats for 3D printing.

Lectra?

Anyone have any experience with Lectra? I guess they have created an overlay program on TopSolid for the Upholstery Industry. I kind of dabble in all aspects of the furniture industry and wondered about Lectra?

Thank you,

Re: Freelance TS Work?

Ken, The detailed CAD drawings go to 1 of 50 factories we deal with around the world so there is no need to create part drawings we allow the factory to determine how they want to manufacturer it though we provide certain standards and parameters they have to follow.

Re: Assign material to a group of parts?

What is the click pathway to do that?

I know where the "Matter"tab is and how to add materials to the material library and adjust the UV's but I do not know where the Matter configurator is?
