-export command line options?

Hi! I’m making an alias to help automate exporting files for solidworks, rotating the model etc. when using “-export” there is an option to specify rhino version, but not file type in the command line. If I want to do a STP file. Is there any way to specify stp in the command line? Right now I’m just using browse and selecting step in the drop down, but it would be nice to not have to hunt for it every time.


Yes, in order to do this you need to use at least a filename plus extension

So for example, on running _-Export, you can type “yourfilename.stp” to export selected objects to the last used folder in .step format.

If you want to specify the directory where the file is to be saved, you either need to go through the Browse dialog anyway, or type the full path+filename+extension to automatically save it there. Don’t forget to use quotes if the filename or file path you type has a space in it…

Ah interesting! Thanks, that did the trick!
