stl import

Asked by JOHN

Good evening,
This might be a bit of a beginner question but,
I have an stl geometry. Is there a way to import it directly and pack it with particles in the densest possible way?

Thank you very much for your help

Hello John,

I have not used stl geometry file, but I have used triangle mesh to pack particles. Additionally, I have written a python code that reads point file coupled with mesh file, and generates random granular packing using GenGeo (you can find it in

So I suggest that you can first change the stl file to point file and mesh file , and then use the Python script to generate your packing.

Hope it helps.
