Vex EDR stl files

Hey guys,
It seems that vex.com’s cad files are in .step files ONLY. I need the v5 motor .stl files for an upcoming project (my team and I are trying to make a v5 hexacopter.) Anyone who could help with providing the .stl files or a location for some would be greatly appreciated. :slight_smile:
Thanks!

Also when I get the parts printed I will share parts with the forum!

Try this. I haven’t personally tried it, but it should work.

I tried this a second ago. For some reason it only converts the internal gearing? It is very odd.

That is weird. what software are you using?

Thank you anyways though!

repitier host, thinkercad, and cura.

this is what it looks like

I would help more, but I am not familiar with that software.
Although, could you upload the file as an STEP, then export it to an STL?

I don’t believe that any of the cad softwares that I have accept step files. Do you know if cura or any other free cad editing software excepts .step?

I do not. However, I can check with someone too see. I apologize, I use Fusion and don’t know much about this.

Use FreeCAD. It can import STEP and export STL, for free.

Here’s some insight on how to complete this process:

This is part of a “scheme” to get him un-suspended sooner rather than later. He’s an invaluable part of my Short Circuit Alliance (see my account), and it’d be nice to get him back to the community.

But don’t let me derail this. He can speak through either of us (in second party summary) until he gets back.

you are my favorite person in the world right now.

i think @Sylvie is your favorite person in the world right now.

He was suspended for a dumb reason and can’t post publicly, but told us what to say to you in PMs. He is communicating through us and told @gilmorkn472 what to send. Taran is a legend and should be your recognized.

Let’s not derail this thread any more. Make your post relevant to the OP’s request, or don’t post at all.
