I'm using MeshLab to prep StL for printing. When extruding aligned objects the print head often prints objects in random order, intersecting the extruded model, usually when printing text.

It would be great if MeshLab could include a filter which could reorder the listing of faces in the file. The optimal procedure for my purposes would group the faces according to isolated meshes, and sort those groups first by lowest z-axis, then lowest x, then lowest y.
