    Hi all,

    I need a bit of instruction to convert my files to .stl. I use the design version of vision numerics cad program called 3Design. With the design version you can model but can't export to .stl unless you purchase the pro version which is a hefty bill.

    I was wondering if anyone new the work around on how to export the file to .stl? Currently I can save it as .vtf which stands for vision numeric/ three design/ file. Any help would be very much appreciated!

    I can't open this file but I see this program also allows you to export as a Rhino file. What other file types can you export as?

    HI David,

    I found someone that holds the full license for 3Design and he converts my files but at a cost.

    Hope that helps.

    Thank you Rachel,
    no one had me told that there are two versions on the market.
    These are for me mafia methods.
