Convert a Crv-file to STL?

Post by jaru-eri »

I have a Crv-file created with moulding toolpath, but these toolpaths doesn´t allow raster x but cuts instead around A-axis and when I try to run this offline, the prosess run very slow.

My problem is that I have only Vcarve pro and can´t export this file as an STL for importing it again for a different toolpath calculation.

Are there anybody here who can help me with converting this file and post it here so I can try another option in order to get a faster prosess?

If you just want a 92mm diameter sphere--without the attached "flanges"--try this model. You could then add your own 3D tabs to it. Just import the .3DM file as you would a .STL model.
