Class SoSTLWriteAction

  • public class SoSTLWriteAction
    extends SoCallbackAction
    Class for exporting a scene graph to an STL file. This class exports an Open Inventor scenegraph into an STL format (.stl) file.

    ASCII and binary file formats are supported (see setBinaryOutput() method).


    • The STL format does not support color or texture information
      (and this class does not support any of the non-standard extensions for specifying color).
    • The application is responsible for checking if the specified file can be created (see SbFileHelper).
