Re: Color STL

Dear list,

We use the last 2 bytes to assign a color to the triangle. A complete and
detailed description of the color STL format can be found in the linked word
document. The other link contains a colored cube (faces in red, blue, green,
white, black and one face has no color assigned).

If you're having any questions or remarks, please don't hesitate to contact

Kind regards,
