Why are there errors when exporting a Mesh from Voxel Grid as a 3MF?


Some workflows require the Mesh from Voxel Grid block, and users may want to export the results to 3MF. The resulting 3MF file displays incorrectly after importing to third-party applications.

Applies to:

  • nTop
  • Exporting


3MF file formats support only triangle polygons, whereas voxel grids produce quadrangle mesh elements.


Use the Remesh Surface block to convert the quadrangles to triangles, creating geometry compatible with 3MF.
