reading STL files

Hi All,

I installed a blender on my Ubuntu and want to read STL(Stereolithography) files
but it cannot read this files. I tried both binary and ascii formate but it says “normal error”

I want to read STL files and want to convert them into png images.
I found blender supports STL files so installed it.

Can anyone please let me know how to do this?

Thanks so much

Are you trying to “Open” them or “Import” them? I open them all the time with no issues so I know that it’s possible.

I have no idea, I used to open them every now and then and never had any issues.

Thats really strange. I never had problems with STL import. But try the script here:

It’s a bit different than the normal STL import script. Maybe that work.
