I am a novice with 3D printing but have already wasted much time and printed many useful (and even more useless) things! Question: Can anyone tell me whether there is a resolution difference between exporting Vectorworks to STL as solids rather than converting to a mesh first? I am currently printing a Sennheiser microphone housing (c1960) which has many curves and am less than happy with the results so far. When sending to the slicer I tried converting the model to a mesh, but on screen the curves seemed to have lost the smoothness that they had as a VW model so I created the STL directly from the model, ie: skipping the "Convert to Mesh" stage... There is a "Quality" option when exporting to STL, but presumably "Convert to Mesh" defaults to the best resolution it can get!?!
