Note:
  An IntelliCAD 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 IntelliCAD will import the model as a set of 3D faces. This is a limitation of IntelliCAD and not of STL Import for IntelliCAD.
