Hi, I am building an object that is going to be 3d printed. Basically  I build a grid around a surface, take the wires of the grid and put a pipe around them (with a round cap)

See jpg

When I bake this and export as .stl I get enormous files, and shapeways cant print them.

What is the way to go, to get a good stl file from the lines of a paneling grid?

Got the answer:
You could use the Exoskeleton component5 by Daniel Piker and Dave Stasiuk. It will generate one solid mesh from a network of curves, should do the trick I suspect.
