Dear All,
a customer of ours is trying to create an stl file for a small component.
Normally I would have estimated only 1/2 a meg for the file size only they
are coming out with a binary file size of 27Mb.
Can anyone give me some optimum settings for the following parameters from
AutoDesk Mechanical Desktop 4.0
Angular Tolerance
Aspect Ratio
Surface Tolerance
Vertex Spacing
Thanks in Advance
