There are two freeware programs which may help you. One is STL_Util which
reads and writes stl, dxf, and obj, writen by B.Michel in VB (although the
source code is not distributed). The other is Xroads by Keith Rule
( which reads and writes a
number of formats including VRML , dxf , and obj (but not STL). I've used
these two programs together in a two step process to go from VRML to STL.
Perhaps you could contact one or both of these authors and work something out.
