Convert STL file

STL STL File

STL (STereoLithography) is a file format developed by 3D Systems company, the world leader in the 3D printing industry. STL files contain triangular mesh only, without face color, texture, transparency and named groups data. While it is possible to assign RGB color value for each individual vertex, Autoconverter our STL file converter doesn't support this STL file extension. You can save STL files in binary or ASCII text file format, with the preference for the former one due to significant STL file size reduction. The triangles in STL files are always defined in millimeters therefore our STL converters will make the necessary unit conversion if required.


IGS IGES File

IGES (Initial Graphics Exchange Specification) is the initial file format for the data exchange between different systems e.g. CAD, CAM or CAE. As the geometry data are stored in a text file format, you will get bigger file sizes when exporting triangular meshes with thousands of faces using Autoconverter software. The IGES file format supports color per assembly, but without the alpha component, therefore any transparency setting will be lost in the IGES file.
