Convert AMF to STL File

AMF to STL ......

Below, you'll discover a compendium of resources dedicated to the interoperability and exchange of AMF and STL file formats. These will aid in the smooth conversion from AMF to STL file.


The AMF (Additive Manufacturing) file format has emerged as a new standard in the 3D printing and additive manufacturing industry. It is designed to facilitate the transfer of a 3D design for the fabrication process on a 3D printer machine. Unlike the STL file format, which is common in the 3D printing industry, AMF offers native support for color, materials, texture images, and reusable geometry component instances. An added advantage of the AMF file format is that its content can be compressed using the ZIP compression algorithm, resulting in a significant reduction in file size. Our Autoconverter software and Automesher Application offer full support for the import and conversion of AMF files.


The STL (STereoLithography) file format, developed by 3D Systems, a global leader in the 3D printing industry, exclusively contains triangular mesh data. It does not include information on face color, texture, transparency, and named groups. Although it is possible to assign RGB color values to individual vertices, it’s important to note that our STL file converter, Autoconverter software, currently does not support this extension. STL files can be saved in either binary or ASCII text formats, with the binary format being preferred due to its significant reduction in file size. Additionally, it’s worth noting that triangles in STL files are always defined in millimeters, and our STL converter will perform the necessary units conversion if required.
