How to convert 3D models files?
« on: July 04, 2013, 08:37:43 PM »
Hi all,

I often create my models using a number of different softwares. Autodesk, Blender, etc and I'm wondering what the best way to convert the files is. I usually go to SAT, and then use a meshlab script to batch convert to STL. This is all good, but seams rather time consuming any thoughts?

Also, if I turned my meshlab script into a cloud based service with API would you guys use it?

Hi Taylor

Both inventor and blender have options to export as an STL, maybe you have older versions??
