The file is huge, but these tolerances are acutally loose for a
typically sized RP part. What are the extents of the model you're
trying to triangulate? If the UG solid is to be scales down before
prototyping, then do the scaling before you generate the STL file. I've
seen UG create massive STL files for no apparent reason. You can reduce
the number of facets in Deskartes, if all else fails.
