I tried to save an assembly as a STL but I got all the components of the assembly not the assembly itself. What can I do?
When sending STL files to clients,
We save the assembly as a part first, then create the STL
This removes a lot of the internal (confidential) details
I save assemblies as stl files all the time and only have an issue on some larger assemblies but have never run into this. So you are saying when you try and save the assembly it breaks it up into separate stl files for each part in your assembly? I am still on version 2012 so maybe this is an option in a future version I am unaware of. If it is an issue you could save the assembly as a part and then save that part as a stl. Gives you a workaround for now.
In the STL export options ...
Where can I find this export options?
When you go to save as your stl click the options box and that window will open.
