What is the the "Facetres" setting on your AMD? I usually use 6 for most of
my parts (depending on your part szie) unless I am using the STL file for
CNC machining. You may have set your parameter too large, I think the max.
is 10 you can set on AMD. You may want to export your STL file with various
setting and read it in to a STL viewer to check whether the setting is
suitable for your proto typing. I use Solidview to check the integrity of
my file once I have exported it out to STL. At least I know where my
comfort level is for certain size and that my proto type will be excepted

Subject: AMD 4.0 stl settings
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
