As it cam be found in this post:


There was already a patch before, able to save objects from PovRay as

Here the link:

People, involved in 3D-Printing often times using a software, called OpenSCad

Problem: Comparing the options of generating objects to PovRay, openscad is very
limited and it's slow. Advantage: it can export .stl files, used in 3D-Printer
slicing packages, like slic3r (slic3r.org) and many many others.

If PovRay would be able to export it's geometry as .stl files, using one of the
methods used like in the old patch (like "tessel" or "tesselate", using one
PovRay-unit as one millimetre), I'm very sure it will be used in wide areas of

It is just the way better tool for parameterised object-generation.
