STL options #triangles:0 ???

Hi folks,

I can't attach the sldprt sorry.

Sometimes in the STL Options I don't get any useful triangle count info, which means I instead have to save the file -> check the preview numbers -> cancel the save -> go back to options -> repeat. Which is a bit laborious compared to just checking the info in the Options tab. See the attached image.

 

Has anyone else had this before? I've run into this a few times, this time I remembered to post it up here.

 

A colleague in a different location uses my STL files unmodified in a 3rd party cad package, and he needs them to be under a certain file size and triangle count. There's quite a few files that need to be handled this way over the next few days. This would be a good candidate for writing a macro, but except for the next few days this is something that needs doing very rarely so I'm not going to bother with that.
