STLA Examples:

facet normal 0.4 0.4 0.2
vertex  1.0 2.1 3.2
vertex  2.1 3.7 4.5
vertex  3.1 4.5 6.7
facet normal 0.2 0.2 0.4
vertex  2.0 2.3 3.4
vertex  3.1 3.2 6.5
vertex  4.1 5.5 9.0

STLB Example:

80 byte string = header containing nothing in particular

4 byte int = number of faces

For each face:

3 4-byte floats = components of normal vector to face;
3 4-byte floats = coordinates of first node;
3 4-byte floats = coordinates of second node;
3 4-byte floats = coordinates of third and final node;
2-byte int = attribute, whose value is 0.
