I have tow question
-I have a 3 closed meshes that I would like to merge into one closed mesh. (I attached the file )
The goals is to print the file, and to export X_T file .
-Every time that i try to save as X_t file I got a message like this:
How can i solve that?
let me know your thought …

The error message states that the Parasolid x_t file format doesn’t carry meshes - you only have meshes.
For 3d printing, you would normally use the
slc file format.
You will have to check what your 3D printer can use.

You right, but I need X_T for support software, before the printer.
Do you have some thought what should i do ?

In that case, you will probably have to rewrite your Grasshopper code to work with NURBS and not meshes.

Hi stupid question, if my object is closed meshed . I can print it as is?
or the object must be closed surface ?
closed mesh object is hollow shell or is it a full solid?

Yes. The driver for the 3D printer will add fill to the hollow shell based on parameters that you can set in the driver software.
