I came back to my computer like 2 hours later and the STL loaded things were there.. 


this was not my experience the first time it loaded it worked just as expected.


if I try to open another file it seems to just hang up and sit there as well..

I am abandoning this software.. seems like a lot of people have issues and reading the support forums (trying everything I can to fix this problem I have) just isn't the right fit of users or developers for me.
