Dear James,

A cheap solution is to us the free trial version of our DeskProto
software, aimed at Rapid Prototyping using an (affordable) CNC
milling machine. Download from

Use the command "Load geometry" to read your binary STL,
and the command "Save geometry as" to export again. In the
save-as dialog you can specify the filetype that you need.

Bonus are the nice viewing options, and perhaps you can use
the toolpaths calculations as wel ...

Best Regards,

Lex Lennings.
