[Chimera-users] large file size exporting scene with spheres

I am very new to chimera.  I would like to export a scene with spheres for 3d printing but the ( .stl) file size is enormous.  They contain way to many triangles.  I tested a smallish molecule in MeshLab and I could decrease the number of faces from 699732 (34MB) to 34986 faces (1.7MB) with minor flattening of the sphere.  Is there a way to have chimera generate spheres with fewer faces?

Thank you,

Bill Eliason
