automate STL Export

arved_bünningarved_bünning Member Posts: 2
I'd like to have a one-click-solution for exporting the selected body as an stl with fine quality, so that I just have to type in a name for the file. 
sadly, I have no programming experience whatsoever. Has someone already done such a FeatureScript?
Thanks in advance!

    @cody_armstrong - is FS likely to ever have import capability?

    @michael3424  This capability falls under our API.  Which isn't publicly available yet.  FeatureScript is solely used for creating custom features.

    Oh, that's sad. So would you like to implement an automated export function?

    I'd really like this too.  Preferably with a saved favorite stl settings and default file path.  Could be a button, could be a context sensitive right click whatever works.
