Dear List,

How many CAM programs are going to the .stl file as an option for

What are the major drawbacks of using STL instead of Iges?

I would assume that an iges file, with the nurbs information, would make
a smoother finish on the part. The part made from STL would be as
faceted as the original stl file, unless further operations were applied
to the file.

Does using an STL file solve more problems than it creates?
