STL import produces triangulated solid

Posted by Raphael at November 05. 2015

Hi

When I import a STL file (that I got from a OBJ from Softimage that was converted with 3d builder) I run into the problem, that I get a tringulated solid (consisting of thousands of mesh objects ....). Now I want a 3d model from that.

To give an example: This is, what the imported STL looks like, coming from OBJ. It looks like a mesh, but I want it to be a geometry. Is there any way to do this?

Hi

If your model consist of triangulated planar surfaces, Repair > Remove Extra Edges can join some triangles into larger planar faces.
