3d export to dxf

Found a solution to the problem of faulty dxf export - exported to wrl, then used a translator, AccuTrans3D, to save the wrl file to dxf. This dxf has all the parts visible that it should, and using the Autocad hide, I can get rid of all the hidden lines. Using Autocad, I finally export the image as...

3d export to dxf

Seemed to work fine and exported to a wrl file perfectly, but when I tried the dxf format, it exported only the original pyramid, and seemed unable to export the bottom half that had showed after ...

3d export to dxf

OK, I think I finally figured that the '3d' means the dxf export will always have all edges and vertices, although in a 2D export such as a gif, all of the back edges/vertices are hidden... so I need to use autocad to hide all the unwanted lines. This works pretty well but there are many different l...

export to dxf

I'm new to Stella 4D, but am impressed with the quality of the program. I have one question so far. I exported a polyhedron as dxf for use in my Corel Designer (that has a filter for dxf), and wonder if it is possible to export only the exterior lines and vertices of the image rather than the confus...
