I’ve been thinking about upgrading my Mini to 10mm smoothed rods, over the factory 8mm ones.
I ran into a snag, which apparently AO made the parts up in Solidworks (only a couple parts are made in FreeCAD). While I normally design my parts in MoI3D, there’s no way that I can import Solidworks files into it. From digging around, it doesn’t even look like FreeCAD will import that file format. Which potentially leaves the STL file, not the optimal editing format.
Short of redesigning the parts from scratch, is there best practice for making an editable part from either of the available AO supplied formats?
