I tried it. and it looks good. I will send it to a 3D printing company to make sure everything is ok, but I thin it's fine.

A warning about exporting from LW to STL for printing. 1m in modeler = 1mm in a 3d printer.
If you send an object made in "real size" in modeler, it will come out very small for the printers. They can size it up in their software though.

Thanks for letting me know.:thumbsup:
