Why to use OBJ Exporter for Solid Edge?

The OBJ file format is one of the most ubiquitous formats in 3D printing and 3D graphics applications. It is the preferred format for multi-color 3D printing and is widely used as a neutral interchange format for non-animated 3D models in graphics applications.

Solid Edge doesn’t have OBJ export option by default. So ProtoTech has developed a plugin to export OBJ files from Solid Edge.
