Importing Thingiverse files to Blender

Post by earthling »

I have Blender 2.68a and just tried importing both an .obj and .stl file. Both wouldn't open in Blender. Both errors said "file format not supported" .

I'm new to Blender and 3D rendering so maybe I need an add-on I don't know about?

Thanks for any help.

nevermind. I think I got it.

For any newbies looking for this answer:

Don't try to open the file then choose an application. Download the file, then open Blender, delete the default objects, then go to "file", "import", then choose your file type.
