    Hi Kay,

    Can you verify that what you are selecting is a 3D SOLID? You mention 3D geometry - maybe check properties of that geometry to confirm.

    Just checking first - did you actually select any geometry when you tried to export the STL file? Seeing the *Cancel* at the select command in your snapshot makes it seem as if you didn't actually complete the selection (thanks, Cad64).

    If you'd like to post a file, I believe the size limit is 1 MB, but I haven't had to post one myself. Someone else may want to chime in here, but I believe that you'll need use the "Go Advanced" link at the bottom right of the reply area to be able to post a file. Once there, you can use the paperclip link to attach a DWG.

    You can upload the file to dropbox (free account sign up) and then post the link to the file here, but it certainly looks like you don't have 3D solids in your drawing.
