I have two quick questions. I have a copy of the Stereolithography
Interface Spec. from 3D Systems and reading through it I find I have two
1) on page 4 it says that:
The triangle counter is 2 to the 16th unsigned integer (65,536)."
but on page 9 in the binary specification for an STL file it says:
length 4 bytes (long unsigned integer) for number of facets.
So if I am creating stl files, is the maximum number of triangles 2^16 or
2) what is the current best resolution of rapid prototyping machines
using stl files? I believe it is .005mm.
Thanks for any help... John
