nTop Platform can import several types of surface meshes. This article lists options for importing discretized geometry and makes suggestions for optimal workflows. Mesh models are approximations of CAD or other geometry and are polygonal (usually triangles or quadrangles). 3D printing workflows typically necessitate polygon models. Import Mesh supports the following file types:
|File Type||File Extension|
|Standard Polygon File Format||.ply|
We also support exporting Mesh formats.
