Mesh Enabler

Digitally signed app

Aplicación de suscripción


The Mesh Enabler application converts mesh features to solid base features or surface features. This function can be applied to individual or multi-selected mesh features or mesh feature folders.

After installing Mesh Enabler, right click on one or more imported mesh features of interest, and convert them into Base features (solids, surfaces, or composites) through a new context menu command.


The graphical mesh data is converted into B-Rep Model data that can be used similar to imported solids and surfaces.

  • Doesnt work anymore
    Lee Hughes | septiembre 18, 2023

    I used this reguarly to convert STL files, now it no longer works, there is no base feature and the units are wrong. Need to fix this ASAP

  • Great when fully operational
    Nick Sayer | julio 12, 2023

    Please update to work with 2023/2024 Inventor. Thanks.

  • New version doesn't work
    daniel gain | mayo 18, 2023

    I pay my subscription but the features keep reducing.

  • New version Broken
    Matthew Newman | abril 20, 2023

    Has worked in the past, now doesn't work in 2023 or 2021.

    Either '1 mesh feature failed to convert to base feature' OR it converts but isn't a solid and you can't edit the model it correctly.

    Please fix we need to modify STLs in Inventor

  • Version 1.0.15 Does not work with Inventor 2023.2 (Windows 11 Enterprise, OS Build 22000.1696, Version 21H2)
    Alexander Gall | abril 12, 2023

    Version 1.0.15 Does not work with Inventor 2023.2 (Windows 11 Enterprise, OS Build 22000.1696, Version 21H2) We used the tool for several users in the past (W10, Mesh Enabler 1.0.12). After installing Mesh Enabler 1.0.15 with system account, Mesh Enabler DOES NOT APPEAR IN Add-In Manager 2023. I also can't find the earlier versions like 1.0.14 or 1.0.13. Too bad that even the system requirements were not specified. Can you please place link here to download versions 1.0.14 and 1.0.13?

  • working very well on Inventor 2022 build 153
    Kis Gellert | enero 23, 2022

    great job !

  • Works just fine
    Brandon Mooney | diciembre 15, 2021

    To the folks who see all the "doesn't work!" reviews, don't stress it.

    I'm running build 287, version 2022.2, and it works just fine! Zero issues. Just remember, that just like any add-in, you need to load/enable it in the add-in manager before it will work :)

    (it's possible it didn't work prior to this date, which would mean that the other reviews are outdated and not relevant, so don't stress them)

    Deividas Palacionis | junio 22, 2022

    Thank you so much, i can confirm it works fine

    Great for tinkering with STL Files, but it doesn't seem to work in the 2021 version of Inventor.


    Compto | diciembre 06, 2020

    Same for me.

    Alexander Messer | diciembre 28, 2020

    2019 does not work too.

    Kerry Hicks | diciembre 30, 2020

    There is a missing step in the instructions that you need for 2021 (and probably the others). Make sure to pull up the "add in" option under the tools tab....and click on the mesh converter to make sure it is activated. They really should document that!

    Rocky Zhang (Editor) | diciembre 31, 2020

    Can you make sure the addin is loaded after installation? Or read the online help here:;appLang=en&os=Win64 If you still have problem please let me know.

    Christopher Nguyen | enero 04, 2021

    It works for 2021 Professional version for me. The publisher, Rocky Zhang, even said he updated it for 2021 below. Version 1.0.10 works just fine. Anyways, for anyone that is installing the .msi file, remember to close Inventor first. I thought the installation was taking forever, but it was because I didn't close Inventor first. After installation, go into Environments and checkmark 'Loaded/Unloaded' and 'Load Automatically' under 'Load Behaviour'. Good luck!

    Wayne Newberry | enero 04, 2021

    YES! Thanks Kerry Hicks- After loading in the "+add ins" menu it is working. Thank you too, for the follow up Rocky Zhang.

    斉賀 和斗 | mayo 13, 2021

    I have a similar problem. What did "+ add in" menu get to work? Please tell me because access to Rocky Zhang' s URL is prohibited and I can not see it

    Wayne Newberry | mayo 14, 2021

    The link from Rocky isn't working- I was able to get Mesh Enable working by going to "Environments" clicking on "Add-Ins" and enabling the mesh enabler plugin by clicking the "Loaded/Unloaded" checkbox.

    斉賀 和斗 | mayo 18, 2021

    Thanks. Wayne Newberry. I couldn't see that "Loaded/Unloaded" checkbox. but I solved it by changing 2022 to 2019.

  • Thank you!

  • Sadly only up to 5000 triangles
    Friedrich Kellner | noviembre 10, 2020

    It works probably fine, I installed it twice as shown in the comments here but then i noticed that the readme states, that it only supports up to 5000 triangles. Sadly this makes is useless to me.
    Someone got a hint how i can convert 70000+ triangle 3d-Scan-Data (STL) to solid/surface?
    The Build-in feature of Inventor just cant handle so many facets too.

    Manju Odland | noviembre 14, 2020

    Mine says that it does convert, but it may take a ng time. Then it took... less time than logging in and starting this message

    Stefan Chindea | junio 10, 2021

    It's a bit late for your project, but other that might struggle with the low poly limit: You could try to reduce the number of triangles in a software like MeshMixer (remesh/cut relevant section -> smoothen -> reduce to 5000 triangles). (The smoothening will help average out rugged sufaces from an stl) Good luck!

  • it works
    Ian Rose | septiembre 06, 2020

    Thank you so much for making this, i looked for answers on how to convert the file to an object for hours, but found no answer. Luckily, I stumbled uppon this saving grace and I am pleased to say that it works. (only issue is that it does not appear uppon first instalation, you have to download it twice and override it, but otherwise it does its job).

  • It works second time
    Mihai Tudor | junio 04, 2019

    First time I installed this, it didn't work to make solid objects, it did automatically surfaces that I couldn't edit. I reinstalled it and than it works.

  • I need this for 3D print
    Miloslav Hyk | febrero 02, 2019


  • Yes!
    Tristan Andreas | octubre 01, 2018

    It is a little finicky, but by doing a solid extrude and then importing a mesh over and then making the mesh a solid, I was able to use the combine feature to make a cut (requires two solids).

    Even more amazing, it was a cut from a JPG that I edited a bunch and changed to a PNG, that I converted to a SVG, that I converted to a STL, that I then converted using this tool from a mesh to a solid.

    If you aren't getting the option when right clicking, make sure that you are right clicking on the mesh object under the mesh tree. Also, as others have said make sure to enable the add-on. It isn't automatic.

    Please fine tune! It is a great addition!

  • Why is this not a build in feature for Inventor?

  • If it doesn't work for you - ask for help!
    Jeffrey Mather | julio 27, 2018

    Reading all the Reviews where users couldn't figure out how to use Mesh Enabler - this isn't a Help forum - go over here and ask for help

  • Works, sort of.
    Anthony Brown | julio 11, 2018

    I installed this newer version of mesh Enabler for use with autodesk inventor  but I had to revert to an older version. It only converted my .stl files so long as inventor was set to use inches in and the ANSI standard. But the moment i switched over to using mm in the ISO standard, the .stl convertion was unable to produce a solid body output. This review should probably be under a bug reporting site but I cant find that so I hope the Autodesk team finds this here.

  • Multi Select Not Available in 2017
    Orrin Bourne | octubre 13, 2017

    I used this tool in 2015 and was able to multi-select mesh surfaces to convert (it worked very well). But now in 2017 the ability to multi-select meshes is not available. I can only select 1 mesh at a time, process, then select again etc. I'd give 5 stars if I could multi-select again.

  • Failed
    Benjamin Weible | octubre 07, 2017

    One star in the place of zero stars. Did not work for even a simple mesh conversion.

  • Works! but...
    Santiago Aljure | enero 09, 2017

    When it converts the .stl to part, the size changes (it grows a little bit). I wonder, have anybody else experience this? Does anybody know how to correct this issue? Thanks!

    Bernard Li | septiembre 16, 2017

    If it outputs as a solid, go to 3D Model > Modify > Direct > Scale and scale it down to the size you need. I had the same problem and it took me a while to get it corrected.

  • still no solid and I cannot do any operation
    Enrique Centeno | enero 11, 2016

    Hi! This article is very informative, but I'd you help me with a thing. I imported a stl. file in Inventor 2016 and I applied the app to convert a Base Feature, and I want to convert it in a solid, but what I got was a surface, I mean "the solid" created is empty. Also, I cannot calculate the properties (mass, volume...) and the software doesn't allow me to do any operation. Inventor doesn't recognize it as a solid. I wish you could help me with this.

    Can't get it to work. Restarted application, stl loads, but no conversion to solid.

    Luke Kani Zihni | enero 04, 2016

    You need to change the load behaviour in the Add-in Manager, this is accessed through the 'Tools' tab & then the '+ Add-Ins' Icon. If you tick 'Load Automatically' (bottom right hand corner) it should activate the add on every time you start inventor.

    Downloaded 3D DXF from manufacturers website Opened DXF in Inventor: Locks up Opened DXF in Rhino 5: OK Saved as STL and 3ds-file with Rhino 5 Imported STL in Inventor: OK, I see the mesh, but it's no solid. Applying Mesh Enabler on imported STL/Saved as IPT: Locks up Imported 3dm in Inventor: Result is an 'empty' modelfile Downloaded 3D DXF again from manufacturers website and gone trough the whole process again: No change I have no 'mesh knowledge' Please, what now? I need the solid. Mesh Enabler was THE promise. Thx and best regards

  • Convert to Base Feature not there in 2016
    Scott Moyse | septiembre 04, 2015

    .... well it is, but the addin isn't loaded correctly. You have to go to Tools>Addins then find it in the list, then enable it.

  • Unfortunately still crashes Inventor 2016
    Tomek Brzezinski | agosto 14, 2015

    Install the add-in on a working student edition of inventor 2016, but after installing add-in inventor crashes either during splash screen or after splash screen but before home page opens. Inventor stalls out (doesn't shut down.) Requires force-quitting After waiting long enough it does seem to get past the splash screen, but it still stalls for ages at the home screen (open recently used files screen.)

  • it works!!
    Oscar Mathews | julio 22, 2015

    It works well. I used it with 3DPrintTech 2.0 (also free) to split/partition and snap fit large STL on smaller printers. Easy-peasy.

  • Is it working properly?
    Emre Delikanli | julio 07, 2015

    I haven't download the program yet, but I wonder about that which version of inventor does it work with? I will load inventor hsm pro v2016, any problem?

  • Loaded but does not work...
    Frederic Defoy | mayo 14, 2015

    The installation seems to work but once I am in Inventor Pro 2013 and 2016 the option "convert to base feature" is missing when right clicking on my object. If I go to Tools / Exchange app manager I can see Mesh enabler 1.0.4 listed in there with a green check mark saying its up to date. So it seems to be loading but the menu entry is not there. How do I fix this?

    Jack Caldwell | mayo 19, 2015

    Hey, i had the same issue. I fixed it by going to Tools and clicking on Add-Ins. I noticed that mesh enabler wasnt being loaded for my model, so i selected it and checked the boxes. Hope this works for you!

    Tracy Chadwick | junio 08, 2015

    Thanks Jack Caldwell...that solved the problem for me too!

  • Crashes Inventor 2015
    Stan Feighny | abril 10, 2015

    Every time I've tried to use Mesh Enabler for a part that really isn't that big, the program crashes. I keep seeing that the bug has been fixed but I'm still having this problem.

    Rocky Zhang (Editor) | abril 24, 2015

    Hi Stan, Does the crash happen to Inventor 2015 RTM? Which Mesh Enabler version you installed?

    I am in the same boat. I have logged in, gone to subscription page, and no download. Has anyone figured this out? What a cool tool that addresses a need in my class...wish I could utilize it.

  • I can't download the Mesh Enabler. There's no link to start downloading it.

    Hey Eric, I was having the same problem and customer support was no help. I think their license server was down for a bit for educational licensing because now I can download it.

    Thanks a lot. We are able to convert a stl object to a surface during a demo with our customer.

  • Wonderful plugin!
    Steven Lucero | diciembre 11, 2014 Descarga verificada (¿Qué es esto?)

    This is exactly what I've been needing! Saved me a few times, and couldn't be simpler! The only thing I guess I could ask for would be tools to automatically reduce the mesh size within the tool - but there are plenty of other programs for that (try Meshmixer!)

  • Milimeters and Inches
    Evan Weinstein | diciembre 08, 2014 Descarga verificada (¿Qué es esto?)

    This works very well! The only problem is that I cannot figure out how to import designs that were exported as mm. They import as inches and show up very large.

    Sebastian Morales | marzo 05, 2015

    You may have solved this already but just in case: When you are importing the model you can click on options and a window will appear. Here you can select the units, by default they should be set to "Template Units" and here you could change it to whatever unit you need.

  • Seems to just hang
    Robert King | octubre 29, 2014 Descarga verificada (¿Qué es esto?)

    I've installed the addin, and I'm attempting to do a mesh convert from the file as an .IPT, and after accepting the operation, it just seems to hang. I mean I cannot do a single thing after starting it. A few mouse clicks later, and the 'busy wheel' appears, and Inventor 2015 SP1 is no longer responding.

    Daniel Lã¶wen | noviembre 24, 2014

    I am having the same problem for bigger .stl files i want to convert. Smaller are converted fine. I have waited for hours but nothing happens. Is there a solution besides waiting? EDIT: It's done, after a few hours and filling my RAM up to 25GB.

  • Crashes in 2015
    Jeremy Noland | octubre 08, 2014 Descarga verificada (¿Qué es esto?)

    I tried to convert a .stl file and it crashes Inventor 2015. I have changed the star rating from an original 2 stars to 4 stars now. Rocky fixed the issue and it seems to work fine now. Thanks Rocky.

    Rocky Zhang (Editor) | octubre 10, 2014

    If you are using Inventor 2015 SP1 you can encounter the crash, for RTM it should not. I am fixing this issue and will publish the newer version. Thanks for your feedback.

    Jeremy Noland | octubre 10, 2014

    Thank you Rocky for looking into it. I am using 2015 SP1 so I look forward to the new version when it is available.

    Blaine Young | octubre 14, 2014

    2015 Froze for me but the base feature seems to have been created. Looking forward to the fix.

    Jeremy Noland | octubre 22, 2014

    Seems to work fine now after Rocky fixed it up. Thanks Rocky! This next comment doesn't really have anything to do with how the Mesh Enabler works other than how you import then use the Enabler: Make sure you know what your units are of the .stl file (inch or mm) when opening the file and change it in your options to match before opening it to keep it at the correct values. I opened a customer model and it looked correct until I made a measurement and it was 12" the real measurement was 0.473 or 12mm. The customer exported in mm and I imported in inch. So it sees the 12 as the value and the import doesn't know or care what it is but as soon as I changed my import option to mm the .stl came in fine and matched what the customer had. Once the .stl was open, I click on the part, then right click, select Convert to Base Feature, I selected output to solid, OK and it was done and worked correctly.

    Evan Weinstein | diciembre 08, 2014

    Jeremy, I am having the same problem with it importing in inches when it should be in mm. How did you change the option to import in mm?

    Jeremy Noland | diciembre 08, 2014

    Evan, What I did is when you go to open your .stl file single select the file you want to open so it is highlighted and down at the bottom there is an Options button, click that and it opens a window, under Units there is an Import Units button, switch that to mm or in depending on how your file was saved out originally. That should do it. Keep in mind I believe it keeps as a default when you change that and you may have to go back and return it to whatever units you normally save in. Hope this helps.

    When it works, works good. Can run the same file twice in a row. One time converts meshes, next it won't.
