This component exports a single Grasshopper mesh to a standard STL file, without any bond to existing 3D printing service.
The component is listed under Pancake tab, I/O
Or you can find it via double-clicking
The single mesh you want to export
Default true. If Pancake should rebase the mesh to world origin
Where to save the file
Default true. Save your file as binary format
Feed true to save the file
Evaluates true when the export is successful
The method Pancake relies on can work on a little-endian system only. This error is likely to happen on a Mono-based platform, and will stop any binary export.
Mesh fed is not closed, which is usually a problem in 3D printing. This error won't stop export.
STL can only store triangles but Pancake cannot triangluate your mesh. This error will stop export.
Pancake cannot rebase your mesh. The problem can be caused by a malformed geometry. The error alone doesn't prevent successful export.
If you want to export to one single file, remember to join the unconnected meshes.
Currently, Pancake doesn't support any extended STL standard (such as color, material).
Pancake supports up to
0.000001 unit accuracy.
