Re: "STL" file ? How to get a STL file?


Hey there @jacgerber  - how are you today?

As I'm not quite sure I understand, could you elaborate on your query?

If you were wondering how to preview them, I'd suggest downloading the appropriate software on your computer, download the files in question and open them from there.

I'm only mentioning this, as .stl files are not currently supported for preview on our website. 

I hope this helps to some extent while I wait for your response to get to the bottom of this.
