export_STL_txt

Below is a demonstration of the features of the export_STL_txt function

Plot settings

faceAlpha=0.5;
fontSize=25;

Get patch data sets

[F1,V1]=stanford_bunny;
meanV=mean(V1,1);
V1=V1-meanV(ones(1,size(V1,1)),:);
V1=V1./max(V1(:))/2;
[F2,V2]=parasaurolophus;
meanV=mean(V2,1);
V2=V2-meanV(ones(1,size(V2,1)),:);
V2=V2./max(V2(:));
V2=V2+max(V1,[],1);

Create the stlStruct

stlStruct.solidNames={'stanford_bunny','parasaurolophus'}; %names of parts
stlStruct.solidVertices={V1,V2}; %Vertices
stlStruct.solidFaces={F1,F2}; %Faces
stlStruct.solidNormals={[],[]}; %Face normals (optional)

Plotting the models

pColors=gjet(numel(stlStruct.solidNames));

cFigure;
title('Patch data to export to multi-solid STL','fontSize',fontSize);

for q=1:1:numel(stlStruct.solidNames)
    F=stlStruct.solidFaces{q}; %Faces
    V=stlStruct.solidVertices{q}; %Vertices

    gpatch(F,V,pColors(q,:));
end

axisGeom
camlight('headlight');
lighting phong; axis off;
drawnow;

Exporting an STL file from the multi-solid patch data

%Set main folder and fileName
defaultFolder = fileparts(fileparts(mfilename('fullpath')));
pathName=fullfile(defaultFolder,'data','STL');
fileName=fullfile(pathName,'stanford_bunny_multi.stl');

export_STL_txt(fileName,stlStruct);
