Exporting STL of Assembly

Hello All,

New to Onshape, and as a 4 year Solidworks user, I am extremely impressed.

Q. - I can easily export a component to STL, but under the Assembly tab, that option does not exist.  Has anyone else attempted this?

    Thanks...this feature is critical when post-processing multi-material STLs for 3D printing.

    Until such time you can right mouse button on assembly tab and Translate it to Parasolid and then translate the XT tab to Onshape with Flatten option. Now you will have a part studio that is the same as the assembly that you can stl out
