What are you trying to read it with?

Note - the file mentioned is an ASCII .stl file - if you are using an appliction that expects an STL file in Binary format then it will not be able to process this file.

OK It go it. The code reads stl binary only not ASCII.

Could you please modify the code to process ASCII stl too. I will open new question.

Thanks
