I don't think it would be nice to eat it: STL -> stereolithography.

I had in the past a reference to a package that would do the opposite:
export 3D graphics to STL, with some restrictions, I suppose. But I am not
sure if I would be able to find the exact reference again. Anyway usually
machines which work with STL also accept DXF and for this there exists
WriteDXF, included in the "Utilities"`DXF` or MVLoadDXF and MVWriteDXF in
your (Jens Peer's) OpenGLViewer.
