I have a STL file which I've been using for 3D printing a shell of a small model car. It's just the top and sides of the car, as I put this shell onto a separate chassis and wheels. Its a good STL file without mesh errors. Most of the surfaces are curved.
The STL file is about 13 MB, and I could easily reduce the number of triangles to make it a smaller file, but it 3D prints well like it is. The shell is about 70 x 35 x 15 mm, and the triangles are around 0.1 mm each side.
But now I want to get the shell CNC machined, i need to convert it to a STP file. I've converted it with a cheap CAD program, but my STP file is over 400 MB due to the number of triangles.
I'm looking for someone who can convert my STL to a smaller STP file, while keeping the shape and size accurate. I have about 0.125 mm standard tolerance on the overall dimensions, so accuracy is important. I would like the file to be emailable, so less than 20 MB.
I just don't have the right tools to be able to swap the triangular meshed surface for the equivalent curves of a STP file. Please help me with this! Thankyou :-)
