CREATING A CMB FILE

There are two possibilities for creating the CMB file.

1. Download the HP Designjet 3D Software Solution and install it on your computer. You then create the CMB files yourself, and therefore have the greatest possible influence on the construction position and material use.

Alternatively, if you wish to have your parts built on the Dimension SST1200es, you can find the relevant information here.

2. You know someone who has such an HP software driver or the comparable driver “Catalyst” for the Dimension 3D Printer and can calculate the CMB file for you. The probability is not even that low – our 3D printers are in use at numerous companies and at more than 200 schools and universities.

Use the integrated CMB viewer to carefully check that your files have been created completely and that there are no geometric errors in the STL file.

The Create CMB file section of our FAQs contains detailed instructions for installing and operating the software.
