    Can saving in STL format hide the true name automatically?

    Peter Cohen

      Hello, I saved my parts with the name of the project included. For example, spaceship_frontpanel, spaceship_engine, etc. If I save the files in STL format using "save as copy and open" and rename the files or just save in STL format using the same name but later rename under Windows, will the original name of the files be somehow embedded in the STL file? For example, spaceship_frontpanel save as A.stl, spaceship_engine save as B.stl.  I am sending the STL files to a company for 3D printing but I do not want them to know what I am working on. Can they find out the original name and folder based on the STL files I sent to them?
