Polygonal Model or STL

Polygonal models, or also known as meshes, are shapes composed of various sized triangles or vertices. These triangles are made by taking raw data and ‘connecting the dots’ to create a faceted mesh. This also simplifies the many points and removes any redundancies within a filtered criteria and reduces file size. This file format can be used in 3d printing, FEA, and flow predicting softwares.
