Import/Export STL
Import and export of STL files
UI location Operator > Import/Export STL
Usage Use the operator to import ASCII or binary files, you can select multiples files. For exporting you can select multiples objects and they will be exported as an single STL file. You can select between ASCII/binary file format (binary is more compact). You can also choose to enable or disable the modifiers during the export.
