Converts COMSOL geometry object from geometry files or workspace to stl-file

Just finished this after a couple of frustrating days working with COMSOL, where eventually I realized I couldn't get my model working and, to make it worse, I couldn't even find a way to export the geometry data to try another program.
Figuring out how to grab the geometry from a solid3-object was also tedious, tnx to COMSOLish function documentation!
Hasn't been tested but on 3 3D-objects exported from COMSOL, reimporting did work.
Hope this helps anyone.
MPH2STL(infile,outfile) loads the mphbin/mphtxt-file, plots it and calls Raw2stl to save the stl file. Plotting is essential because the triangulated geometry is taken from the plot

MPH2STL(infile) does the same as above, but saves the data in (infile without extension)+'stl'

MPH2STL or MPH2STL([],outfile) searches the workspace for a geometry object (exported from COMSOL in linked mode) and converts it
