I'm not sure I'm aware of Chris' work. However, my macros do produce properly
closed meshes, and allow saving them as .inc files, so in theory yes.

I've actually done this before with another project - last year I made some mesh
knots in POV-Ray, and used the SDL to directly output STL files suitable for
printing. Some Ultimakers we have at work did a fine job with them :)
