RE: [rp-ml] NX3 cannot generate .STL less than 0.01 mm

I don't know about NX3 but perhaps you can scale your CAD solid by
factor 10, create the STL, then rescale the stl in Magics or SolidView
or even on an RP machine. Hope that works for you.

        I am using Unigraphics NX3 and I need to generate .STL file for
very small medical model. The model has details about 0.005 mm,
however, the minimum dimension that can be produced by NX3 to .STL is
0.01 mm.
        Do you know to solve this problem or use NX3 to produce finer
