Extract 2D drawing from STL using OpenSCAD
Recently i needed to edit an STL from thingiverse, for at small hobby project.
But as many might know, editing a solid object like an STL is not really so great, so i found out that its possible to get the cross section as a drawing, by using OpenSCAD, which i then could import in to Invetor, and create my own modified part.
Here's how to do it:
1) Open "OpenSCAD"
2) Write the following command and press render:
3) Finally export the extracted drawing as a DXF for later import into Inventor.
