```The first problem is the 3ds files comes out invalid.
The second problem is that in obj files a phantom triangle
shows up.
And lastly the stl file appears to be empty.
It might just be my machine with an over worked
version 8 Mathematica,
but it might also be something wrong with my code?

Clear[x, y, z, f, g]
f[t_] = Sqrt[Abs[Sin[t]]]*Cos[t]^2;
g[t_] = Sqrt[Abs[Sin[t]]]*Sin[t]*Cos[t];
x = (1 - f[t]^2)/(1 + f[t]^2);
y = 2 f[t]/(1 + f[t]^2);
z = 2 g[t]/(1 + f[t]^2);
w = {x*(10 + Cos[p]), y*(10 + Cos[p + 2*Pi/3]),
z*(10 + Cos[p + 2*Pi/3])}
g1 = ParametricPlot3D[w, {t, 0, 2*Pi}, {p, 0, 2*Pi}, Axes -> None,
Boxed -> False, ViewPoint -> {10, 0, 0}, PlotPoints -> {64, 16},
Mesh -> False, ColorFunction -> "Rainbow"]
g2 = ParametricPlot3D[{-w[[1]], w[[2]], -w[[3]]} + {20, 0, 0}, {t, 0,
2*Pi}, {p, 0, 2*Pi}, Axes -> None, Boxed -> False,
