I am trying to import into Sesign Spark Mechanical
I can do this easily with Spaceclaim but can't afford a personal license
I take it the imported file is an STL.
An STL file is an approximation of the outside surface of a model, that is split up into faces and then triangles. Dependent on the complexity and...
Import into what?
You can visit the various application support areas here.
If it is DSPCB there is a FAQ detailing it.
@DesignSpark Really useful link thanks.
This is an area for technology based questions, this looks like a support question for our software or applications.
Please post your question or raise a support ticket with our engineers...
A little while ago we published a post listing some of the most common issues we see & how to fix them. We had a lot of positive feedback from this post so thought we’d create a follow-up post with another 5 mistakes that are creeping regularly.
A question we repeatedly get from customers is in regards to foot grounders. Wrist straps are generally straightforward and people understand what they do and how they work. But when it comes to foot grounders, there is still a lot of confusion.
Continuous monitors eliminate the possibility of a component being exposed to ESD during the period that the wrist strap was not working properly.
Working in close collaboration with Desco Industries, widely recognised as a global authority on ESD prevention, RS have produced a selection guide which not only explains the dangers of failing to manage ESD, but also helps electronics manufacturers
We talked in the past about the benefits of continuous monitors and also introduced the different types to you. The focus of today’s post is the technology behind continuous monitors – how they work and how they compare to each other.
As the need for smaller and faster devices increased, so did their sensitivity to ElectroStatic Discharges as circuit-protection schemes were removed to stay ahead of the market.
