Hi everyone, I’m a new user to this forum and I have been using the trial versions of Rhino for mac over the last few months and slowly getting better at it. I’ve been exporting my drawings as .stl files to use with my up Mini 3D printer without any problems and most of the files have been around the 2 - 4 Mb range.
I’ve just downloaded the latest version (5.0) and started using it. I’ve noticed no difference between all the previous versions I’ve used so far, except that when I went to export it, it said the file size as a .stl was 186.9 Mb! The original drawing was 66.8 Mb (already massive compared to my previous drawings) and not much more complicated than any of the previous drawings I have done.
What gives? My printer can’t handle files this big and locks up. Is there some kind of settings for resolution that I haven’t seen before? This is rather annoying after just spending a considerable amount of time drawing the original up. Can anyone help please?
