You can't export that to .stl because it's a collection of 3D faces. In order to export, the model needs to be a watertight mesh. I tried running CONVTOMESH and CONVTOSOLID but both operations failed.

 

If you want to export this for 3D printing, I would recommend recreating it as a 3D Solid.

Try Revsurf, make the shape as 1 pline, ie a thin shell, use rotate3d to rotate it around the X axis so its standing up in the Z direction else the object is laying on its side. 3d Image is stl file outputted.
