Note:
  An Bricscad polyface mesh cannot contain more than 32,767 vertices and/or faces. If you select to import the STL model as a polyface mesh and if it exceeds this limit then STL Import for Bricscad will import the model as a set of 3D faces. This is a limitation of Bricscad and not of STL Import for Bricscad.
