I recently downloaded 3D View by Actify. It supports STL very well. I
also use it for viewing iges files. I paid $75, but don't let the
price mislead you. You get a lot for the money. Their cut section
capabilities are fairly powerful. It only runs on windows. You can
download a trail copy from their web site. Try Actify's home page:

Hope it helps...
