Facet body to STL

[ Edited ]

Hello All,


I have a question about exporting faced body to stl document. Is there a way how to do it using NX Open? PutSolidInStlFile function doesn't work for this type of geometry, so I'm searching some other solution.


Many thanks for you support.

Well you could simply cycle through the facets, and write each one out to your STL file. A bit tedious, but I'm sure this would work, if you can't find any other way. STL text is easy to write.
