Edit STL Files


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,


I apologize if this has already been asked. I have downloaded an STL file from Thingverse and I want to be able to edit the file and manipulate it. Is there a procedure to do this in VW? Do I need to convert the file to something first?

Try this:

Open a new vwx file.  In the File menu, click Import. Near the bottom are import file type choices including STL.  Select this option and navigate to the STL file and accept/open.  This should bring the STL geometry into your new file as vwx geometry (probably a mesh).  Not sure if it will be easily editable, but at least it's a start.  If needed, you can export the resulting vwx geometry as an STL file.
