File Information

This version is currently ASCII only but future revisions will support binary. This function is based off of Luigi Giaccari's STL importer but uses the textscan function to dramatically increase speed, which makes a significant difference for large files.

MATLAB release MATLAB 7.11 (R2010b)

When I try to load my STL with that script, I get every time the same error. an sombody help ?

Subscript indices must either be real positive integers or logicals.

Error in import_stl_fast (line 59)
if (C{4}(end)== NaN)
