Rhino’s mesh setting are baffling me…
I need to be able to set the mesh export [for .obj and .fbx]
to be very very dens. Something like 1 - 2 million poly for an object in the scale region of 20 x 20 x 20 mm.
Moving the mesh slider all the way to max value comes very short of that.
The reasons are: It is for jewellery, with usually lots of small details, which I need to export it to Zbrush. Sometime to do extra work there, but mainly to be able to directly send it from Zbrush to Keyshot
[ I only have the Keyshot for Zbrush version, which is a 1/4 of the price of the regular Pro version with one limitation: no imports. ]
Can the dens mesh setting be included in an export Macro?
or will the export Macro directly use the setting that has been set in the Mesh export dialog?
I did look at the command line for the Macro sequence before posting… but couldn’t properly understand what to do…
So now I know I need to use the dashed version, and it is all fine
saving correctly with all the advance values entered. But the command History give me this unknown command massage, and does not list all the advance details [while completing the task correctly ]
perhaps an error on my part…?
I will copy the detailed advance part from your post for the Macro, and just adjust the values.
I did this, it didn’t work very well…
what I go is again the low poly [default] export
and a command history so long and full of error that it is too long to paste here.

The options that you write in your macro are only those that you click on if you are using the command line version of the command. So, you start with the -Export command and then note everything that you click on in the command line. You don’t click on “Choose meshing option” - that’s an instruction, not the option.
The following should work - I’ve removed underscores and the entire file path to make it more readable; if you work on a non-English Rhino, you will need to add these again…
Only thing is that it only works on Preselected objects,
if nothing selected it gives an unknown command massage and does nothing, is there a way to make it so it prompts for selection if none [like the regular -export does ?
I need to learn how to do these things… it’s confusing
