Alibre Super User
This script uses the open source stltostp to convert the STL file to an STP file and then optionally import it into Alibre.
You must download and install stltostp before running.
If you installed stltostp but the script can't find it then you will need to correct the path in the code:
path_to_stltostp_exe = r'C:\Program Files\stltostp\1.0\bin\stltostp.exe'
MaxWaitTime = 100 #number of seconds to wait for the conversion to finish
Please post here about any issues or suggestions. Also let me know if you use it and like it or even if you don't.
Added new version with more error checking.
