When the task is run, it will attempt to import the contents of the STL file at the specified target path with the specified scaling, and export this as a DriveWorks 3D file to the specified target file path.

By default, DriveWorks will attempt to use the imported STL file name, to label the geometry name of the Drive3D file.
