    Great tool! But on windows I cant' load binary .stl, modified Utils\__init__.py: def open(self): if self.is_local(): return open(self.get_local_path(),'rb') then it works fine. But I didn't get the gtk stuff with python 2.7 running, so it would be great to get an updated binary!

    I think you guys are on the right track but your STL import does not work. I have a script that might help... please let me know if you are interested.
