Export compound shape

Post by radnaskela »


I am trying to export a pure compound shape in .stl format. It's a kind of cuboid made of smaller cuboids. I can export the shape, but when I try to import it to SolidWorks or Matlab I get errors saying that there are too many facets or that more than two facets share an edge. Is there a way to get around this issue? I don't want to decompose the shape if it's not absolutely necessary.

Hello Alex,

once you have exported the shape, can you successfully import it again into CoppeliaSim?
The import/export of meshes is handled by the Assimp plugin for CoppeliaSim, wrapping the Assimp library.

Try to use a different export format maybe.
