Increase resolution of exported STL
jacob_birkett Member Posts: 2 ✭
I am exporting a part studio as an STL with a resolution of "fine". What are the highest quality custom settings that I can use? The design have a very subtle and large radius curve that is more flat than round in the final part when I load the STL into my slicing software. I am 3D printing this and I need a nice gentle sweeping curve, not the small bump where the vertices of the two flat planes making the curve intersect.
You can even put both into an assembly and compare.
I'm using fine and have no issues, but only you can decide.
There's no limit except the size of the file that's generated.

For me it's...
Angular deviation (deg): 12.5
Chordal tolerance (mm): 0.24
Minimum facet width (mm): 0.635
Angular deviation (deg): 6.25
Chordal tolerance (mm): 0.12
Minimum facet width (mm): 0.254
Angular deviation (deg): 2.5
Chordal tolerance (mm): 0.06
Minimum facet width (mm): 0.0254
Hope this helps!
