        It may help if you create a table of sorts so people can check the survey
categories. For example:

Handle Large size files
Detects and fixes bad normals
Detects leakage/cracks
Feature size limit
detects non-manifold structures and fixes them
Ease of use like user interface - picking, showing where problem is

etc... there are probably many more functions. That way it will be a good
side by side comparison - ofcourse you may be looking for a overall
result.....which can be tainted depeding on which functionality people have

My 2 cents - as usual

Hello again,

Some rp-ml postings generate many responses. That's been my experience.
However, the recent one related to the best STL repair tools generated few
responses. Neil Hopkinson of De Montfort University kindly shared his
views. Thank you, Neil. Also, I heard from a producer of one software
product. I find it interesting that more people are not using STL tools.
In any case, I will try again.

Which software product offers the best STL model repair capabilities? I am
most interested in software that offers a high level of automation.

Thanks, in advance, for your thoughts.
