Default Create and assign new timesteps to data

Hi,

I have an STL file and I want to rotate the geometry by alpha every timestep and save the data. Right now, I just load the STL file and a series of empty CSV files that creates the time vector. Then I use the animation pane to rotate the STL file each timestep. So everything looks good and works if I save it as animation, but if I want to save my transformation (rotation by alpha) as time series of STL files, it only saves one time step and skips, so it seems the animation pane becomes inactive when I want to save data. Is there a way to rotate the STL file and be able to save it each timestep?

Thanks in advance

If you are using a software like Blender, MATLAB, or any other 3D modeling/visualization tool, you can consider scripting or programming to automate the rotation and save the files at each time step.
