An STL usually contains tens of thousands of very small triangles. Each triangle has three sides. Each one of those sides is shared with the triangle next to it.
Besides all that Aspire is pixel based so it would not know what to do with all those vectors.
The stl models I have posted on this forum usually contain several hundred thousand triangles.
Aspire's ability to read an stl and then convert it into pixels is a good thing. It allows the software to work with models created in programs outside of Aspire. One of the things to remember is that the main focus of Vectric products started out as decorative/organic work. Those types of work rarely demand any real "precision". The vector portion of their products allow accurate mechanical work to be done easily.

Just in case you don’t know, you access the higher resolution settings by holding down the Shift key whilst clicking on the “New” job icon. You can also change resolution after a job is created by holding Shift whilst clicking the Set Job Dimensions and Origin icon.
However, the model must be imported AFTER you set the new resolution. Otherwise the model is “stuck” at the previous resolution setting.
Another variable is the resolution of the model itself. If it was created/saved at a lower resolution, then higher job resolutions may not help much, if at all.
