The lower resolution file sliced fine, but it's not flat on the bottom - it's constant thickness, so very little of it touches the build plate. How did you print it - with support?
Thanks for the meshlab command - always like to trim things, but it's odd you had trouble - I've RepG/Skeinforge'd both the large (51 M) and the smoothed (10 M) versions and printed both successfully (the latter one scaled up to 6" x 6"). Let me know what happens with your QECD'd version - be happy to try it.
Skeinforge blew its brains out trying to process the file.
I just googled around and found http://meshlab.sourceforge.net... that apparently has a function called Quadratic Edge Collapse Decimation in Filters -
gt; Remeshing, Simplification and Reconstruction. Thanks, random people at https://groups.google.com/foru....
I'll try it when I get home. 8-)

Will pair very nicely with ThePlanetMike's rover (http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:27908).
Sorry about the quality of the pic - printing in silver/gray ABS seems to enhance blobs and edges, particularly in photographs. Will try printing in natural and black ABS which tend to photograph better (and melt a bit more easily, reducing said edges and blobs).
UPDATE: I just uploaded a much smaller stl file - it has been smoothed (laplacian smooth) with Meshlab. Slightly less detail but much more manageable size. I'll try printing this afternoon.
