Sorry, don't have Office 2019, but your STL file looked good in
MeshLab. Look at the "3-D Models make with Chimera" web page,
more STL related information. In particular, it links to Eduardo's
Guide for 3D Printing, http://www.munfred.com/proteins.html. And that
page has a section on using Netfabb to fix the STL models. Microsoft
also provides a free service to repair STL files,
https://modelrepair.azurewebsites.net/. Perhaps if Microsoft repaired
the STL file, Office would be able to display it.
