STL STereoLithography File

A file format that was developed by 3D Systems, a global leader in the 3D printing industry. It is primarily used for storing 3D models and exclusively contains triangular mesh data. Some of the benefits and features of STL files are:

  • Simplicity: STL files are easy to create and read by many software applications and 3D printers, as they only contain the coordinates of the vertices and the normal vectors of the triangles.
  • Lack of Additional Information: STL files do not include information on face color, texture, transparency, and named groups. This means that all STL models are effectively colorless in their raw form.
  • Binary and ASCII STL Formats: STL files can be saved in either binary or ASCII text formats. The binary format is generally preferred due to its significant reduction in file size compared to the ASCII format.
  • Units of Measurement: The coordinates in STL files are always defined in millimeters. If necessary, our STL converter will perform the required units conversion.

STL Files Converter: While it is technically possible to assign RGB color values to individual vertices in an STL file, it’s important to note that not all software, including our Autoconverter, currently supports this extension.


DWG ZWCAD Drawing

ZWSOFT's ZWCAD is a professional and cost-effective CAD platform that offers many features and benefits for designers, engineers, and architects. Here are some of the reasons why you should choose ZWCAD over other CAD products:

  • Compatibility with AutoCAD: ZWCAD is fully compatible with the latest DWG file format, which means you can open, edit, and save files created by AutoCAD without any loss of data or quality. You can also use the same commands, aliases, menus, toolbars, and shortcuts as AutoCAD, making the transition to ZWCAD easy and smooth.
  • Support for 3D and GIS Formats: ZWCAD supports a wide range of 3D and GIS formats, thanks to our Automesher Application and Automapki Application plugins. These plugins enhance your ZWCAD functionality to import and export files from formats such as STL, OBJ, SKP, FBX, STEP, SHP, KML, and more.
  • Customization with ObjectZRX: ZWCAD is highly customizable, thanks to the ObjectZRX technology from ZWSOFT. ObjectZRX is an object-oriented programming interface in C++ that allowed us to develop our plugins for you.
