is an STL File
.STL file format has become the Rapid Prototyping industry's defacto
standard data transmission format and is the format required to
interact with 3D Printed parts. This format approximates the surfaces
of a solid model with triangles. The more complex the surface, the
more triangles produced.
all of today's CAD systems are capable
of producing an STL file. For the user, the process is often as
simple as selecting File, Save As, STL.

all cases, export your STL file as a Binary file. This saves on
time and file size.
note, these are only general guidelines and may not work or produce
the best possible STL file in some cases. Please consult you user's
guide or the software's developers for more information or technical
support. Should we determine that your STL file is not adequate
for production we will contact you for an updated file.)
