Debian 3D Printer Project
Summary
Stl
Debian 3dprinter packages for STL files

This metapackage will install packages related to 3d printing software dealing with STL files.

Description

For a better overview of the project's availability as a Debian package, each head row has a color code according to this scheme:

If you discover a project which looks like a good candidate for Debian 3D Printer to you, or if you have prepared an unofficial Debian package, please do not hesitate to send a description of that project to the Debian 3D Printer mailing list

MeshLab is an open source, portable, and extendible system for the processing and editing of unstructured 3D triangular meshes. The system is aimed to help the processing of the typical not-so-small unstructured models arising in 3D scanning, providing a set of tools for editing, cleaning, healing, inspecting, rendering and converting this kind of meshes.

Meshlab can read files in these formats: PLY, STL, OFF, OBJ, 3DS, COLLADA and PTX. It can write PLY, STL, OFF, OBJ, 3DS, COLLADA, VRML, and DXF.

A RepRap is a 3D printer: a machine which can print 3-dimensional plastic objects from a computer model. Repsnapper can convert STL, which can be created with most 3D drawing programs like Blender, into GCode, which the RepRap can understand. It can also be used to send the result to the RepRap.

Slic3r converts digital 3D models into printing instructions (G-code) for your 3D printer. It cuts the model into horizontal slices (layers), generates toolpaths to fill them and calculates the amount of material to be extruded.

Slic3r supports input in the STL, AMF and OBJ formats, and can output G-code for several series of 3D printers, including RepRap, Ultimaker, Makerbot, as well as SVG files for DLP printers.

It can be used with a graphical interface, or in batch mode via the command-line.

Creation-workshop
Slicer and Host Controller
License: non-free
Debian package not available

Creation Workshop is a Slicer and host controller application for your SLA/DLP printer. It works on Windows, Mac & Linux. It can also host FDM/FFF 3d printers. It allows you to load models, generate supports, slice, & control your printer.

Ivcon
3D Graphics File Converter
License: unknown
Debian package not available

IVCon is an executable C++ program that can read and write a variety of 3D graphics file formats, converting from one to the other.

This is extended version of John Burkardt's great, but buggy tool. It Supports many 3D formats, and a lot of 3D scene elements.

Supported formats include 3DS, ASE, BYU, DXF, GMOD, HRC, IV, OBJ, OFF, POV, SMF, STL/STLA/STLB, TEC, TRI/TRIA/TRIB, UCD, VLA, WRL/VRML, XGL and more.

The program supports many elements of 3D scene, but specific converters may not support all of them. There are two possible reasons of that: one is that the support is not fully programmed inside this tool, second is that the format may not have possibilities to support the item. Good example is the ASC format - which is an ASCII cloud of vertices, and supports only bare points in 3D space.
