STL Model Alignment

Recommended Posts

I was asked to post the following question from a collegue, who doesn't have account for entering the forums here:



We are having a hard time producing toolpath on stl with our chook.

Could anyone please tell us how to program the stl files to be recognized as "drive surface"?


Thank you so much in advance.


Best regards,




He used the word "stl files" above but exactly what he is asking is about stl mesh entity, not external .stl file. He would like to know the way to pick stl mesh in the graphic window and use/treat it as drive surface for generating toolpath by our own c-hook, like we can do with surface entity.


Does anyone know?
