Ok Volker since you asked,
I don't understand why we should be using STL files at all. Any decent CAM
program uses surface IGES. Can do cirular interpolations, reproduce curved
surfaces without faceting etc. The STL format is limiting the capablilities of
the machines, causing geometric inaccuracies and poor surface finish.
Why not use IGES instead of STL?
