Export 3D Data

Modified on Fri, 22 Sep 2023 at 09:48 AM


Export 3D data from a notebook so that they can be imported and used in other notebooks.


Within a notebook you can make edits to an existing dataset as part of your workflow. You may want to import this changed dataset into another notebook for other use-cases. The export function allows you to export a dataset for use in another notebook without using the File Manager.

How to use

  • In the field 3D Datasets, select an available 3D dataset in the current notebook that you want to export.
    • You can select one or multiple datasets.
    • If there is only one 3D dataset present in the notebook, this field is automatically populated with that dataset.
  • For each dataset selected, a new field will appear called Export Name for {Dataset}.
    • This field is automatically populated with the name of the 3D dataset prefixed by the word “Global”: e.g. “Global 3D Data.”
    • You can enter a new export name for the dataset by editing this field.
    • This export name will be used to reference this data within the platform and when importing the data into another notebook.
    • This name must be unique within the platform. The step will return an error to say the name is already in use if the selected name is not unique.
  • Click on Apply: Export 3D Data to complete the export.

More on this step

This 3D data export function is compatible with any type of 3D data (*.stl, *.vtk, etc.) that can be loaded into the Monolith platform.

This does not export 3D data for use outside the Monolith platform, but makes the dataset available for importing into other notebooks within the platform. It will appear in the available list of 3D datasets referenced by its Export Name when using the Import Global 3D Data function. The exported data will also be visible in the data manager.
