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.

  • Failed
    Benjamin Weible | октября 07, 2017

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


  • Solution
    Luis Gaiato | сентября 25, 2017

    Enable it on "Environment > Add-ins> Autodesk Mesh enabler" with a double click. Mark the automatic load box.


  • Worked Perfectly
    Dave Hoder | июля 25, 2017

    Just tried this with Inventor 2018 and it worked great on an imported .OBJ file (Kohler sink)


  • Rodolfo Ramos
    Rodolfo Ramos Castelo Branco | июля 20, 2017

    It does not work on the 2018 version. Any solution? I thank you


  • Mesh enabler 1.0.6
    Charlie Wright | июня 20, 2017

    Mesh enabler 1.0.6 only generates surface, will not creare a solid. previous version worked fine.


  • Crash
    Jark Schröder | апреля 21, 2017

    I used Inventor 2017 on Windows 10 and the newest Version of Mesh but ist Crash.


    Thomas Kalteis | июня 06, 2017

    Same problem for me! Inventor 2017 with Windows 10 and newest MeshEnabler version. Hopefully there's going to be a fix.


  • WASTE OF TIME!
    Matheu Broom | апреля 17, 2017

    Doesnt do what its say it does, spent hours, ends up making something that isnt a solid and you cant print it anyway. Wast of time!


  • Couldn't do without it
    Yuval Dascalu | февраля 23, 2017

    Waiting to see it in the 2018 version. Great work!


  • Inv2017 - Do not work
    Thomas Stephan | января 10, 2017

    - tried to enable in Environment > Add-ins> Autodesk Mesh enabler, but there is only the advise: Fail to load Uninstalled, booted, installed ... same problem. I dont know why.


  • Works! but...
    Santiago Aljure | января 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 | сентября 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.


  • Great
    rob de haan | января 08, 2017

    Good god this addin really is a must have for work with shape generation. Can't believe it isn't standard with inventor


  • Doesn't work....
    Robert Goodson | декабря 08, 2016

    Iv'e downloaded the application. Enabled add-ins on 2017 Inventor, but the option "Convert to Base Feature" never shows up.


    Alexandre Machado | декабря 21, 2016

    You need to enable first. Environment > Add-ins> Autodesk Mesh enabler (double click then Ok).


  • Amazing!
    Miguel Angel Velasquez Zabala | ноября 21, 2016

    I can convert and edit all my files (*.stl to *.ipt) Really helpful, thanks.


  • Very Good
    Aleksandra Martynowicz | октября 09, 2016

    Works great with Inventor Prof 2015


  • Thanks
    Pat Mcdonald | сентября 08, 2016

    I used this with Inventor 2017, it took 5-10 min to convert the part, however i am only running this on a laptop. Thanks


  • Deu certo!
    Marcio Melo Rodrigues | августа 09, 2016

    Demorei para conseguir baixar, mais no final deu certo. Tive que baixar o inventor que eu não tinha e logo apareceu a aba de Download.


  • It

  • Non riesco ad installarlo
    Enrico Zandegiacomo | мая 09, 2016

    Buongiorno, ho a disposizione inventor 2016 per studenti in italiano. Ho cliccato su installa, è andata a buon fine ma non riesco a trovare quel nuovo menù. Cosa posso fare?


    Andrea Marinelli | мая 25, 2016

    Avevo lo stesso problema e ho risolto in questo modo: > Dal menù aprire la sezione "Environments" > Sotto il gruppo "Manage" slezionare "Add-Ins" (come simbolo ha un "più" grigio) > dalla finestra che si apre, sotto la scheda "Applications" selezionare dall'elenco "Autodesk Mesh Enabler" e porre la spunta sulle voci "Loaded/Unloaded" e "Load Automatically" > premere "Ok"


  • goon enough for me
    Jeroen Van Der Meeren | апреля 26, 2016 Проверенная загрузка (Что это такое?)

    I use this tool to import .stl-files from thingiverse, in Inventor. I can convert to solids and edit the designs. Just don't forget to set the load behavior in the Add-in Manager, on "Load Automatically" .


  • still no solid and I cannot do any operation
    Enrique Centeno | января 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.


  • still no solid
    Jan Van De Geest | декабря 16, 2015

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


    Luke Kani Zihni | января 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.


  • ayuda
    henrry de la cruz urrutia | ноября 22, 2015

    Santiago Aljure | января 09, 2017

    A mí me funcionó y tengo cuenta de estudiante. Tienes que acceder con tu cuenta de estudiante para que se te habilite el botón para descargar (pero si pudiste descargarlo, supongo que ya accediste, así que solo tienes que buscar el botón para descargar).


  • Inventor 2016 with Mesh Enabler: Locks up
    Colino Sprockel | ноября 10, 2015

    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


  • Check Your Add-Ins
    Chris Edw | сентября 06, 2015

    I suddenly had a problem with this add-in and just had to re-inable it on the tool menu. It works great as long as you have it running.

  • Convert to Base Feature not there in 2016
    Scott Moyse | сентября 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.


    Peter Pedersen | августа 01, 2016

    Had the same problem, so would rate it 5 stars for working, but deduct 2 for the pain of getting it running...


  • Unfortunately still crashes Inventor 2016
    Tomek Brzezinski | августа 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.)


    Philipp Landgraf | ноября 02, 2015

    same problem here. inventor 2016 pro windows 8.1.1 64bit


  • it works!!
    Oscar Mathews | июля 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 | июля 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 | мая 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 | мая 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 | июня 08, 2015

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


    Philipp Landgraf | июля 08, 2015

    Thanks Jack, that did the trick on my installation as well


  • No Download Option
    Robert Klewer | мая 01, 2015

    Even though I am a valid Subscription Customer I am not able to download this App. Can somebody help?? I need the app really really urgently.


    Sergey Minakov | июня 09, 2015

    same here :(


    Stanley Akers | июня 24, 2015

    Me as well what gives?


    Ty Shipp | июля 07, 2015

    Same problem here. Signed in and "Subscription App"


    Jonathan Thompson | октября 14, 2015

    I too am unable to see the the download despite being on Subscription. As luck would have in I need this urgently to create a Shrinkwrapped part of some Catia files which at the moment are only meshes.


  • Crashes Inventor 2015
    Stan Feighny | апреля 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 (Разработчик) | апреля 24, 2015

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


    Philipp Landgraf | июля 07, 2015

    I'm using Inventor 2016 Pro on 8.1 64bit with the newest Mesh Enabler and have the same problem. It fills up all 8gb of ram but only uses about 30% of my i5 2.5 ghz. Thereby it kills every other program, of course, but even after an hour and a half of doing its thing, no response, no result. I notice another Inventor window that's just the inventor Icon open in the task bar called AdInventorButton or somesuch. It too does not respond.


  • Works well
    Maximilian Wolf | марта 31, 2015

    Great job!


  • Can't get the download link

    I can't find it either. I'm signed in, but this download isn't an option


    Tim Cruger | апреля 30, 2015

    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.
    Eric Jiang | марта 13, 2015

    Where is the link? I click Subscription App but it doesn't let me download. I logged in to the Education Community and Autodesk Subscription Center there is no link neither.


    Chris Nantau | марта 17, 2015

    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.


    Wyatt Masniuk | марта 20, 2015

    I am having the same issue as you. Can't find the link.


  • Works well
    Bulent Kalaycioglu | декабря 16, 2014 Проверенная загрузка (Что это такое?)

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


  • Wonderful plugin!
    Steven Lucero | декабря 11, 2014 Проверенная загрузка (Что это такое?)

    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 | декабря 08, 2014 Проверенная загрузка (Что это такое?)

    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 | марта 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 | октября 29, 2014 Проверенная загрузка (Что это такое?)

    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 | ноября 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.


  • How to get this for Autodesk Student Version?
    Joey Pietrzak | октября 28, 2014

    I have the Autodesk student version of inventor. How can I download and install this?

  • Crashes in 2015
    Jeremy Noland | октября 08, 2014 Проверенная загрузка (Что это такое?)

    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 (Разработчик) | октября 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 | октября 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 | октября 14, 2014

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


    Rocky Zhang (Разработчик) | октября 17, 2014

    A new version is published for fixing the crash issue, please check it.


    Jeremy Noland | октября 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 | декабря 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 | декабря 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.
