Perhaps if we knew the originator of the abbreviation it may help shed some
light. Whoever he/she is, if they have been reading
the responses on this list they must be having a good old laugh.

>From Materialise Reference Manual p. 1-10 says, "STL is the abbreviation
of Standard Triangulation Language". Then Sterolithography and other RP&M
Technologies from Rapid Prototyping to Rapid Tooling, by Paul F. Jacobs,
Phd, on page 4 says, " The software generates a tessellated object
description known as an STL or STereoLithography file." So I'll stick with
answering ?????
