    I opened file in netfabb, fixed and resaved it. Size of the file is increased from 11Mb to 41Mb - why? I have very slow internet and large files is problem

    Might depend on what you fixed and which file format you used. If ascii STL, could be simply that the new file specifies more decimal places for the
    coordinates. Try zipping the file for upload.

    In Netfabb, make sure you export "As STL" rather than "As STL (ascii)"

    I opened .obj file and resaved as .obj too. No idea what was fuxed, but there were some red parts visible in netfabb. Zipped file size is ~8Mb
