This brief guide will explain how to enable Solid Edge ST5 to work in 3D Stereo with the moreStereo3D Software.
The guide is designed to be brief and yet covering all needed steps to enable Solid Edge ST5 to work in 3D Stereo. This is a one-time setup and not needed to be repeated once setup properly.

I. Prepare the moreStereo3D Software

1) Download and install moreStereo3D.

2) Start moreStereo3D
