That error is given when you try to open an STL file directly. The correct way to do it is first creating a new model template (File - New - Model). Then select File - Import - STL. Browse the STL file you want to import, UNTICK the box "Hide Smooth Edges". Facet Body Type can be either NX or JT, there's really not much difference and the facet count stays the same. STL File Units should be the same what the scanner uses to have the model in 1:1 size.

@Kostas, Can you show the link from the model that you are trying to open? I want to figure out and give you an answer

Hi, thanks for your offer to help. I tried to locate again the file in the forum but I can not. As soon as I am able to find it again I will contact you.
