Good afternoon,
My name is Jorge, and I am an architecture student.
I'm doing an end-of-career job on 3D printing media. I am using your program (Ultimaker Cura) to generate the support of a piece, and analyze it. I would like to know if it is possible to export the print support and the internal structure of the piece that generates the program to another 3d editing program. As rhinoceros, autocad, 3d max, etc. This would be very helpful to me.
 
Thank you very much.
Jorge Galindo.

As it turns out the only export options from Cura are STL OBJ and GCODE.  None of these are going to be very usable or useful when brought back into a 3D application.  I've had some success bringing an STL file into SolidWorks, but the result is often a just surface file not a solid, pretty messy and not very editable. 

 

Perhaps some of the other contributors here will have something for you.  Perhaps Blender?  I'm not really familiar with Blender's capabilities.
