STL export in Cura ?


Recommended Posts

Posted · STL export in Cura ?

I would like to know if there is a way to export to STL from Cura.

For example when I set on support in Cura, I may want to be able to remove some of them sometimes.

    Support in Cura is added as part of the slicing process - it exists in the gcode slices only, not in some 3D model representation: so no, you can't export that as an STL.

    Of course you can use other programs such as MeshMixer to pre-add support structures to the STL, and edit those as needed.
