ScanTo3D - to save in which format?

I am in the process of converting a point cloud to a surface. I finished the mesh prep wizard and before I continue to work with the surface wizard I want to save the file (to "save" it/to continue another time/to save this stage of my work). SolidWorks automatically suggests SLDPRT. Now when I remember correctly, I have created a mesh out of a point cloud and a typical mesh file format is STL, for example.

Is it better to use STL (or another file format?) for a mash? Or is SLDPRT perfectly fine?

Or shouldn´t I be saving between the two wizards at all and save to whatever I want when I´m done with the surface wizard?
