3D Printing Calculations API Clients Free Download

What

Calculate the volume, area, bounding box and facet count of a 3D mesh in one go! All the complicated math is encapsulated and exposed as these super easy to use RESTful API calls.

How

Extensive documentation is provided. A comprehensive README file is included to get you started right away. Sample 3D mesh files (STL binary and ASCII) are also included for your convenience. Making 3D calculations has never been this easy. Grab this mega product now and monetize your 3D printer!

Client side implementations are provided in four popular languages:

  • PHP
  • JS/HTML
  • Python
  • cURL (for the command line junkies)

Why

I already have as PHP code. Whats the big deal about this product ? Glad you asked Well, with this product you don’t have to worry about memory leaks and stack-overflow issues. All the calculations happen in the cloud on dedicated hardware. We already support STL formats (both binary and ASCII) and have planned support for other popular 3D formats like OBJ. You will get access to all the advanced features through this channel. While the PHP scripts are OK for starters, for a booming 3D printing business you need to bring in the big guns

Example

Here’s how to use this web service via cURL:

  1. HTTP POST
     curl -X POST   -F "api_key=your-api-key"   -F "datafile=@your-model.stl"   --url http://manifold.metamatic.us/v1/compute/ 

    e.g. JSON response:

     {     "task_id": "67cdd36a-b53b-427e-8f97-42d62a46c1d5"  } 
  2. HTTP GET
     curl -X GET   --url "http://manifold.metamatic.us/v1/compute/?task_id=your-task-id"  
  3. e.g. JSON response:

     {     "volume":     {         "value":63999.92980959427,         "UOM":"mm3"      },     "facet_count":     {         "value":12,         "UOM":"#"      },     "bbox":     {         "value":         {             "width": 40.0,             "height": 40.0,             "length": 39.99999809265137         },         "UOM": "mm"      },     "area":     {         "value": 9599.993515016226,         "UOM": "mm2"      } }
