SLC cad file reader


#1

Hi all,
is Rhino able to read .SLC file format?

Thanks in advance


#2

I don’t think it does but from what I can tell, the file format is in plain text and it wouldn’t be hard to parse the file into Rhino through a Script or Grasshopper Definition.

Both reads and writes AFAIK.

You’re right. The test file I tried opening said “could not determine Units” so I guess its just a corrupt file.

Anyway this was my effort to parse the file through GH.

Both STL and SLC carry no unit information in the file, that’s just the way it is.
