MeshLab, Netfabb Basic, and Netfabb Cloud Service are free programs that help prepare your 3D files for successful uploads and 3D printing.
To best understand the unique benefits for each program, here we’ll be reviewing useful tools that can assist you.
Before getting started, you’ll need to download and install Meshlab and Netfabb.
MeshLab can open and export in several file formats that Netfabb cannot. If your file isn’t in the right format and your software doesn’t export in one of the format options that can be read, you can use MeshLab to convert it.
