Hi-- I’m new to Rhino 3D. I have a .stl file that I would like to import into Rhino for basic measurements. Every time I try to import the file, though, I get an “STL File Read Error”, which states “Unable to open STL file”
Is there something I’m missing?
@Nick_Trivedi, can you post the file ?
I suspect your STL is an ASCII format that originated on a PC instead of binary format which is cross platform. If you have a text editor on your Mac that can save it back to Mac formatted text, that might work.
Hi all, thanks for the responses. I really appreciate the help. Attached is a link to the file.
this version should be importable to Rhino for Mac :
1238 Left Final.stl.zip (9.5 MB)
i just opened it in Xcode then saved it… (as per @cdordoni’s suggestion)…
interesting enough, Xcode acts as a 3D viewer on the original .stl you shared
