STL Sliced Import (by Slic3r). Supports OBJ/OFF/PLY/STL as input file formats.

How it works:

  • projects an STL file on the X-Y plane by cutting the objects into "slices"
  • each "slice" is a group of polygons, with a label indicating its z position
  • the polygons are converted to paths for better editing in inkscape
  • use Object → Rows & Columns →  distribute the slices in a grid

(warning) Warning: Requires Slicer 1.3.1-dev (the really latest build possible)
