Allow export of Preform files as .STL

I realise that Preform does not let you manually modify the support structure. However if you could export the file as an STL those with the appropriate software can delete/add supports as needed after Preform has had a go.

Good day Josh,

before they include this function in Preform, you can always use the small utility here:

It’s only command line, so not very integrated, and while it exports each object separately with its support structure, the rotation and scaling are not included.


Hi Josh,

I use the b9creator software (free download) to place custom supports and it works great. You have a lot of control of the supports, location, angles, thickness, etc. Then it exports the file to STL and import it into the Preform for printing.
