Export STL with NX Open (c++)

Hi,

 

 I am trying to export an STL using NXOpen (c++). In journaling I can save the model as prt, but there is not option to record the action of exporting an STL in NXopen with c++. I only find the STL import option. Has anyone tried exporting STL with NXopen c++ before?

 

Thanks!

GTAC has an example in C

http://solutions.industrysoftware.automation.siemens.com/view.php?si=nx_api1307

 

The solution center contains several examples in VB or C#, they might give hints as to what functions need to be called.

Elaine,

 

It will not record in a Journal because it requires that you use functions from the Open C toolkit.  If you go to the solution center and search for:

 

sample program stl

 

you will find several examples.  After the initial search, filter by "nx_api" on the left, under document type, to limit the results to sample programs, and after that, you can filter by language extension if desired.

 

Best regards,

 

Steve
