Hey there, I’m looking for a way to process STL files - perform some calculations on them such as determine thickness at the middle and distance of edge from a flat surface. Curious if this is even possible?
I use netfabb for this. It has a measure tool.
You can also get Solveering Instep V2 to convert from stl to step so you can use your favorite CAD software instead
Thanks for the suggestions! Ideally looking to control the workflow so that I can automate it end to end. Which leads me to think passing off to a tool like NetFabb isn’t viable. Currently looking at openScad to see if that can generate “values” can I can then scale as needed.
Blender has a full python API. You can do almost anything with the file if you have the right script.
