All parts are exported as .stl instead of only the selected

Postby Alohaa » Tue Feb 06, 2024 11:37 am

Hello,

I have drawn several parts in Sketchup and exported one of them for 3d printing as .stl with the option that only the selected part is exported, but in reality all existing parts are exported.

Exploding all groups into individual components before exporting does not change this.

I have thought of copying the part in question and copying it to a new SU sheet as a workaround, but even then all the other parts of the original sheet that were not copied are exported as well, which is incomprehensible as they do not exist!

Then I deleted all other parts in the original sheet, exported the remaining one, and again the deleted parts are also exported! How is this possible?

What am I doing wrong? What is the solution?
Kind regards

Update---

Only when I first saved and closed SU, then restarted, reopened the sheet with the pasted part and exported as .stl, all ghost parts were gone and only the one in question was exported.
But as I said, this is a makeshift solution, it should also be possible to export only the selected part from a sheet with several parts.

It is possible. You use the Selection Only option under the Options button prior to export.

You could share the .skp file so we can see what you are working with.

@Rich:
that's exactly what I did, but it didn't prevent exporting everything!
