Export to IGS or STEP
February 10, 2017 12:59PM
I need to provide a design in STEP or IGS format, to a manufacturer, for quotes.
However that is not a format that OpenScad exports to.

I tried in Freecad, to import the OpenScad generated .STL end export into IGS, but those files were empty.

Anyone knows a way to create either of those files out of my OpenScad sources/.STL ?

This seems to work, Thanks.

No Idea it could work with the sources :-)

Note some OpenScad functions cannot be imported into Freecad - e.g. Minkowski and Hull, and there are limitation on child arguments.

Yeah,
I noticed.

Also, when the poducer reads the STP... it has funny objects not ment to be there :-(

Now I seem to be forced to learn another language. which is cumbersome at my age yawning smiley
