import STL file

Post by Elin »

Hello,

The assembly model designed in Solidworks has 12 same parts, as I save it as STL file and import it to Vrep. In Vrep only 1 part exist, because they are same parts so they are only saved as 1 STL file. I don't want to import another same 11 parts because it's difficult to adjust their position in vrep. So is there a way I can easily import some same parts saved as STL files to Vrep?

Thanks.

Hello,

as far as I know, STL files do not have the concept of objects, with position and orientation. As far as I know, a STL file only stores vertices and indices. Can you post that STL file here?

So why don't you save your whole Solidwork construction as a single STL file, that contains all 12 parts?

Cheers

I learned how to save assembly as a single STL file.

Thank you~
