STL viewer for Flow 3D
 
dear flow 3D experts:

there is one STL viewer under Utilities menu for Flow 3D 9.3R, we could use it to open all the .stl example files under flow3D/v9.3/GUI/STL_LIB directory;

but we can NOT use it open .stl files exported from Solidworks and UG

please kindly advise what should I do?
