Title: How to export to STL format
Post by: mitchb on May 13, 2017, 05:00:21 PM
The STL file format is used a lot for 3D printing. This is a tutorial at Shapeways site with some tips:

You can also change a solid or surface to a mesh using the Edit -> Change Object Type and select mesh.
This pdf explains the MeshParameters dialog box settings. It is from Tim Olson's book "ViaCAD Tips and Tricks". You can find it here:
