Export STL CPlane relative

Does there exist a export script somewhere that will export as STL relative to the CPlane? In the case of 3D printing, it's often very difficult to rotate objects off the exact degrees they are in the model in the printing software.

Thanks

Hi scott, I don't remember any already existing script for that but I think it should be possible to make one for you, I'll look into it later tonight or possibly tomorrow.

Hi scott, please give the attached plug-in a try, hopefully it will do what you were looking for. There are instructions for installing a plugin here.

Doesn't seem to work for me. When I run the script, it displays a file dialog. If I choose STL, I don't get the meshing options and no file is created. If I choose 3dm as format, it does create the file, but it's empty.

Hi Scott, I'm not able to repeat any problem over here, can you please post an example file (or e-mail it to me at moi@moi3d.com if you wish to keep it private) so I can try it?

I did get it to work. I had renamed the file so that it worked with extscripts plug in (adding _). Putting it back made it work correctly.

Thanks
