I ran into the same thing since I have SW2014 also. Just open the IGS file and let SolidWorks do the import diagnostic, then run the feature recognition. Then you can save it as a normal 2014 part file. I had one error with a minor cut extrude with the front case, but it was non-consequential and the part is fine. There were no errors with the rear case or buttons.

I checked into uploading the files onto sculpteo, I am not sure if the files are coming up as the correct size. It pulls up the buttons as being in cm but the size makes sense more so in mm. Also it does say there are some places that are to thin.  Before I go through all the trouble of turning this into a real thing and spend a ton of money doing so. I had heard there might be future plans of there being a diy kit of this reference mod being made in the future.  My guess is this would be better done and also cheaper as it would be done in larger numbers.  If this is happening is it way out in the distant future?

Also the large button came out as 10 X 11 X 4 CM but it seems way to large and estimated at over $400 lol.  But when switched to mm scale it seems to make more sense at the size. Similar thing with the other smaller buttons. The 2 main parts of the frame seemed to be the correct sizes and wall. Maybe its just a issue with sculpteo itself.

Also what battery is being used in the reference mod so I know what I am looking for if I decide to try this out in the future.

The battery in the betas is a FullyMax FB900HP-3S It is advertised at 10Wh but we've found it to be closer to 8.8Wh.  Not surprising but...

As for making and selling reference cases, that is the plan but I have no idea when those will be available.  They will be tumbled raw aluminum cases like the betas.  They'll include the buttons and the reference 510 connector.

I'll have to save one of my DNA200's for this case.

The files are in Iges format.  We also have SolidWorks models available upon request.



I have been asked for these files in .STL format

Is there anyone out there who has these in .STL or can please convert them?

Thanks

I'm looking through the Reference files in SolidWorks and in the mod assembly it seems that one file "screenholderringed.sldprt" has been omitted. If possible, can that part be added to the zip collection? Screenshot 2015-06-30 14.10.36.png

A simple google search found a few sites that will convert IGS to STL online.

It's fairly easy to convert the files to .STL, however in my experience .STL files aren't very useful except to send to 3D printing.

The Evolv Reference Mod was designed to machined and IMHO a straight .STL conversion isn't suitable for 3D printing.

When I have some spare time I can convert to .STL files if people really want them. 

Am I wrong in my assumptions? Is there 3D design software that uses .STL files that you can actually edit the parts?

I just converted the files to STL on http://www.3dtransform.com. 

Why would we want to edit the files? They should be good to go, no?
