3d printing

Is it possible to 3D print from the models produced in Curvy?

Yes, you can take the OBJ files from Curvy and convert those in other software to the format required by 3D printers (some can load OBJ directly I believe)

Thank you simon I am using a davinic 1.0 loves the .stl format any recommendations of tools that are good for transforming obj to stl and are inexpensive at this time 3d printing is experimental for us not a profit center.

I use MeshLab (Free + full of cool features) for conversions. You should be able to simply load the OBJ then save the stl.

Googling shows there are several other free options, but I've not tried them.
