Check this out - this is a whole new world - if anyone else knew about this they sure hadn't told me .

I bi-sected the STL in the STL impoter and exported it without any more slices. The result is shown hear. What am I saying - yes all of those 3DS and DAE files that I am converting to STL files will make some great carvings (THE OLD WAY). The proof is in the pudding. I will be carving this project and the Northern Pike this week and my brother (Brian) and I will be painting them - yes I will take many pictures and notes of the painting process.

By the way - be sure to sign up for the STL Newsletter (sign up on my website) Look for the first installment in about 2 weeks.

Thought you knew it too!!!

I do not recall which stl I was playing with but as a let me see what it does and sure thing it worked..

One thing I might suggest is to do the "smooth" function in your 3D software before taking it to stl importer. It will take out the ridge lines...

But yes to all others, get way to make patterns!!!
