Default Problem with importing .stl file
Posts: n/a
I have created a clean .stl file using Google Sketchup with several individual buildings. When I import the .stl file into Phoenics most of the buildings are now at different heights/elevations and are floating above the ground. Has anyone had a similar problem? How did you fix it? I rebuilt the Sketchup File and .stl file multiple times to make sure its clean, but no matter what I do the buildings are floating all at different elevations in Phoenics. Ryan

When you import, should choose "Object constrained by Domain " and choose "Yes"
The trouble with google sketchup is also much,'cause phoenics only recieve the solid file.You may use 3D max to do it, I have no trouble with 3D max

Hi, I use Inventor and works just fine with any STL.
When importing STL at the second dialog click - import geometry from file and see if that holds. The constrict by domain is of no help and has nothing to do with the floating or anything.

Have u used any SFTP, FTP and SCP client for transferring ur .stl file to phoenics directory? If so, during transfer check the transfer option. I have fetched same problem earlier time. change the transferring mood as TEXT and try to load again .stl file in phoenics.
