I'm used to export 3D models with BobCAD v31 and at now with v32 as STL wihtout issues.
Take care: only 3D objects are exported so no wireframe as arc/lines/etc.

STL contains vertex (in multiple of 3) that define surfaces (using triangles).
Only objects with vertex and so surfaces can be exported.
