Description of the different steps
- To load a file, you can go to File >> Load and use the Import Part option. Alternatively, you can go to the Quick Access bar, and click on Import part. The keyboard shortcut CTRL+L will also open the import window.
- In the import window, specify the placement option: As Is, Default Position, Aside of Others, and Automatic Placement. You can automatically fix your files during import by enabling Autofix during import.
- If you’re importing an STL file, just click on Open. If you’re importing a CAD file, an additional window will pop up, giving you options for CAD-to-STL conversion. When the options are correct, click on OK. The CAD file will be converted to an STL file, and opened in Materialise Magics.
