Not able to export .stl files

Post by prasina2 » Mon Feb 02, 2015 1:38 am

Newest update 1.909.1.85 will not allow me to export .stl files. The progress bar opens, sits for a bit with nothing happening, then closes. The only file it generates is a "Certificate Trust List" ? The previous version I used before the update didn't have this issue. Any help? Thanks!

The exported file has a .stl extension which Windows also uses for Certificate Trust Lists. Nevertheless any software that can open 3D .stl files can be used to view the exported design.

I'm seeing this problem now also, version 1.910.1.66. I was able to export to STL with no problem until recently, now the dialog just flashes on & off the screen and no file is created. I tried this on two different machines (Win 7 ultimate & XP pro) and two different files as well as two different locations to export the file. Same results each time.

Thank you, that seems to have addressed the problem. However, the "Price/Analyze" (P/A) will make a suggestion such as auto-correct, I accept it, the change is made, and the analysis stops. I had to run the P/A several times to get the final result.

I'll pass that on to R&D. Also note that the upper right circle should be redrawn as it is not a circle currently.

I have read the last section of "Exporting," but to no avail.

I have tried to export on multiple computers using both Windows 7 and Windows 10. On my Microsoft Surface Book, the export completes correctly and the STL file looks to be correctly rendered under both Microsoft's built-in STL viewer and Meshmixer.

However, on two Dell laptops and one Dell desktop, all running Windows 10, the export fails to produce even an error file. The Windows 10 installs are fresh on cleared SSDs.

The same result is achieved when attempting to export the STL file on a Sager notebook, running Windows 7.

All machines are free of bloatware, including the Surface.

I have even attempted to export STLs in virtual machines under both VMware and VirtualBox as hosts. To date, the only machine the continues to work is the Surface Book.

Is there any way to make the exporting process function on more than just my Surface Book? I have attached two files: (1) the file that I actually want to render across all platforms, and (2) a simple "hockey puck" that should render, but also suffers the same fate as its companion (to rule out shape and design issues).

Please Help!
