    Default how to get rid of a cut line from stl conversion

    Hi All. I just installed and downloaded an STL file to the patterns. I am getting a deep square cut around the pattern which seems to be the outside of the uploaded STL. Any idea how to get rid of this carve path. The pattern does not have any list items so i can't just delete it. The pattern editor shows this as an unsupported file. i attached a screen shot.

    The stl has the background area in it and not just the dish? If you have the pattern editor add on you can edit the pattern. In the pattern list, left click on the pattern and then right click and select to open it with the pattern editor. After you get it opened in the editor use the magic wand tool to select the background area and then delete it.
