About Printing 3D Models
3D Printing Service Providers
Autodesk has partnered with several 3D printing service providers to output physical
models from 3D models.
When you use the 3DPRINT command, you specify 3D data from a DWG file that is then
translated to a faceted mesh representation consisting of triangles. This representation
is saved as a binary STL file that can used by a 3D printing service provider to create
a physical model.
How to Create and Obtain Physical Models
The following diagram illustrates, from begining to end, the basic steps of creating
and obtaining a physical model:
