When you click on the Download button a pop-up window appears, presenting you with a variety of download options for your design. You have the flexibility to download the model in multiple formats, such as STL for 3D printing and compatibility with Solidscape users. Additionally, you can choose to download it in 3DM format, ideal for rendering and manufacturing purposes. If you need visual representations, you can effortlessly download renders in PNG format from various viewpoints. Furthermore, the platform supports downloading the design in both FBX and OBJ formats, providing compatibility with a wider range of software and applications.

Stereolithography (STL)

STL (an abbreviation of "stereolithography") is a file format native to the stereolithography CAD software created by 3D Systems. STL has several backronyms such as "Standard Triangle Language" and "Standard Tessellation Language". This file format is supported by many other software packages; it is widely used for rapid prototyping, 3D printing, and computer-aided manufacturing.

2Shapes offers two ways to export your design in STL format: with multiple closed meshes or just one closed mesh. We highly advise using multiple closed meshes for most of 3D printers, and one closed mesh for SolidScape owners.

Rhinoceros (3DM)

Rhinoceros (typically abbreviated Rhino or Rhino3D) is a commercial 3D computer graphics and computer-aided design (CAD) application software developed by Robert McNeel & Associates, an American founded in 1980. Rhinoceros geometry is based on the NURBS mathematical model, which focuses on producing mathematically precise representations of curves and freeform surfaces in computer graphics. The Rhinoceros file format (.3DM) is useful for the exchange of NURBS geometry.

2Shapes offers two ways to export in .3DM, one for rendering and one for manufacturing. There are small differences, one of them is prongs height, manufacturing is longer than rendering, for gemstone setting requirements

Images (PNG)

Allows the generation of realistic and high-quality visual representations of jewelry designs without manual intervention.

Filmbox (FBX)

An FBX (.fbx) file is a format used to exchange 3D geometry and animation data. You can use different programs to open, edit, and export high-fidelity 2D and 3D files. FBX files are used in film, game, and Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality (AR/VR) development.

Canadian software developer Kaydera originally developed the proprietary FBX file format, known as FLM, to store data from motion capture devices. FBX files store all the data for complete animation scenes.

Wavefront (OBJ)

OBJ (or .OBJ) is a geometry definition file format first developed by Wavefront Technologies for its Advanced Visualizer animation package. The file format is open and has been adopted by other 3D graphics application vendors.

The OBJ file format is a simple data format that represents 3D geometry alone — namely, the position of each vertex, the UV position of each texture coordinate vertex, vertex normals, and the faces that make each polygon defined as a list of vertices, and texture vertices. Vertices are stored in a counter-clockwise order by default, making explicit declaration of face normals unnecessary. OBJ coordinates have no units, but OBJ files can contain scale information in a human-readable comment line.
