I’m working on a project that will be taking scan data (as STLs) and outputting it as CNC milled foam. The machine I have uses grasshopper to generate the tool paths so I would like to use Rhino to edit the STLs created from the scan data before using grasshopper to generate the g-code.
How am I best to use the STL files within Rhino, should I convert them into another file type before i edit them? Solid or Mesh?I will be wanting to split models up and add features to them before preparing them for milling.
Any tips would be very gratefully received, please let me know if you need more to go on!
