[Question #681343]: import stl format file into yade


New question #681343 on Yade:

We can use the ymport.stl function to import facet from stl format file. 
I want to ask if the coding of the file must be binary or not? 
In my case, i need to do some modifications to the geometry, such as move and scale.  
So first i save my geometry to stl file using ASCii coding and open it with python, like 'fd=open(stlfile, 'r')', then i can do some modifications. After that, i save the file in the ascii coding too. In order to import it into Yade, i use the paraview to change the coding of the stl file from ascii to binary. 
It is so fussy. Could anyone give me some advice?
