STL Export

Hi all,

 

I have a big problem, i use NX for 3D print modelling too, but sometimes when i export to STL the exported file contains zunds of triangles that are have the same endpoint. The problem is with it that the printer makes more material on this places. is there an option, to set the STL export that i can limit the side lenghts of the triangles?

Hi,

The link works fine for me (perhaps other can validate the same)

You can use the CHORDAL TOLERANCE in NX11.0.1 and Triangle Tolerance  and Adjacency Tolerance prior to NX11.0.1 for controlling the triangulation.

Does it work for you? Do let us know.

Best Regards

The first link is broken for me. I see the same error message as the OP.

The second link works...

It must be the space at the end of Kapil's link.  URL encoding replaces the space with "%20" and that url does not exist in the documentation - hence the error.  You can use F12 in the browser to open the console window and interrogate the html.

 

Oddly enough when Tauform quoted the text the space was removed (unless he removed the space).
