Some questions on the Siemens NX Macro

Recommended Posts

How do you adjust the triangle tolerance in the STL generation? On my first attempt I found the body created to be too faceted and I'd like to be able to smooth it out. Also, after upgrading to Cura 3.0.4 the macro appears to have broken and I do not know how to uninstall it to attempt a reinstall.

Bump. I want to learn more about how the Siemens NX macro works! I assume it is set up similar to an NX Journal. If so, where is the macro file, and can parameters be edited, such as triangle and edge tolerance for generating STL? Also, looking to learn how to uninstall the macro so I can re-install from the Cura interface.
