I’m trying to export a 3D file from Rhino to a different format for CAM purposes. While I’m familiar with simple use of Rhino I’m no expert so try to make any explanation layman-appropriate!
I already have the model created, it is completely closed (watertight), and all solids used to create my model have been joined. I have a single simple solid object with no curves (only planar surfaces). I have two copies of the file saved, one as NURBS object and one as a mesh.
I have a 3D (or more accurately a 2.5D) CAM software that I need to import the file into in order to create a prototype on a CNC router. I need to be able to export the Rhino file into a (.v3d/.v3m), (.stl), (.3ds/.asc/.prj), or (.dxf) format. I know how to save, and how to export. But when I try to export my file I only have the option to export it as a (.3dm).
Can anyone help me “unlock” the option to save my work as anything other than a Rhino model? This is the paid version of Rhino Corporate, not a trial, by the way.
