3D Printing Support

LightWave has always been a good tool for 3D printing with its measurement system based on real-world quantities rather than the mysterious “units” used by some other software. This means that if you model the Empire State Building to scale in LightWave, it would print out at 1,454 ft (443.2 m) high - presuming you had a printer capable of such dimensions, the time to wait for the printout and the money to pay for all the material you’d need.

STL and PLY importers and exporters are included. For full-color 3D printing we support object-oriented VRML export.
