export STL from ParaView issues
 
1 Attachment(s)
Hi all
Maybe I am using an old version of paraview but I dont think it should matter.
Im trying to extract a surface from a given mesh into .STL but the output is just horrible.
I added a picture of the liner, loooks messed up.
Did anyone encounter this before?
Best regs

Greetings Rickard,

Apply the filter "Triangulate" before exporting.

Best regards,
Bruno
