[rp-ml] Stl for CNC and spray on fiberglass

Can anyone give me the lowdown on what might (or might not) be required for
getting an stl file into a CNC-friendly format?

I have a series of stl's and was interested in taking four of them and using
them for CNC output of the file.

Is a conversion necessary and if so, does it depend on the type of machine,
geometry of the file or what exactly.

I'd be interested in knowing if there are any technically savvy CNC outfits
in the Austin/Texas area as well.


This is a little off-topic, however does anyone know where I might find good
information/techniques/case studies for applying a large scale fiberglass
type surface to a frame or armature?

Can I spray-on fiberglass using a conventional paint gun?

Are there other material combnations that I should look at?

Much thanks,
