Here are 2 simple steps to convert your ABC to STL using our fast and free ABC converter tool.
The ABC (Alembic) file format is a graphics format containing 3D content which was originally developed by Sony Pictures Imageworks and Industrial Light & Magic and released in 2011. The aim of the ABC format is to enable the efficient interchange of 3D assets between different working entities.
The format can contain a variety of 3D object formats including polygon meshes, NURBS, parametric curves and more. The files can be opened by many 3D graphics applications including the popular open-source Blender application.

The STL file format has its roots in the 1980's and is the native file format for 3D Systems stereolithography CAD software. The format defines a triangulated mesh with vertices and faces and is a popular format for sharing 3D printable model files.
There were several formats that attempted to extend the STL format namely SolidView and VisCAM whose formats included limited 15-bit color information for each mesh face which is often ignored by most modern 3D software. The STL format can be either Text or Binary, our tools will support both formats.
STL Converter Capabilities
When converting your ABC to STL our tool will attempt to accurately convert any color/material information.
Your ABC file will be converted to a STL file using our unified 3D model and mesh conversion tool. Our ABC 3D tool performs accurate conversions of 3D elements such as vertices, faces, normals and relevant material information. As both ABC and STL support color material information our tool will also attempt to convert the color information too.
First click the "Upload..." button, select your ABC file to upload. Your ABC file will be uploaded to our servers. When the ABC to STL conversion has completed, you can download your STL file straight away.
We aim to process all ABC to STL conversions as quickly as possible, this usually takes around 5 seconds however this can be longer for certain files, so please be patient.
We aim to provide the best conversion experience. Our tools are under constant review and development with new features being added every week.
