This article shows how to build a STEP file from VTube-LASER.


STEP 1 - Switch On the Correct Model in the Viewport

There are several models that can be turned on in the viewport. Remember that whatever surface model is displayed in the viewport will be in the STEP file that you export. This includes the envelope and scanned data.
