Stl tools

 I have started working on some stl manipulation programs. I don’t want to give too much away at the moment but the people I have talked to have been encouraging. Also if I never get anywhere then it is nicer to be able to fail quietly.

I have been able to load a binary stl file and render it to screen - it was actually easier than I thought. The way I am calculating the vertex normals is waaaay toooo sloooow. I will try using vertex data as an index of sorts to try and speed things up.
