An EPS (Encapsulated PostScript) file is a graphics file format commonly used for storing and exchanging high-quality vector images, illustrations, and graphics. It was developed by Adobe Systems and is widely supported across various software applications, making it a popular choice in the design and printing industries. Unlike raster image formats, which store images as a grid of pixels, EPS files use mathematical formulas to represent shapes and lines, ensuring that the images remain sharp and scalable without losing quality, regardless of their size. EPS files can include both vector graphics and bitmap images, making them versatile for different design needs.

The "Encapsulated" in EPS refers to its ability to encapsulate or package all the elements of an image, including fonts, graphics, and other resources, into a single file. This feature ensures that the image will be accurately reproduced on different systems, as long as they support PostScript language interpretation. As a result, EPS files are commonly used for print-ready artwork, logos, and illustrations, as they maintain their quality and integrity when resized or printed on different output devices.

EPS files can be opened and edited using various graphics editing software, such as Adobe Illustrator and CorelDRAW. However, to view EPS files without specialized software, they can be converted to other more common image formats like JPEG or PNG. Overall, EPS files are a reliable and widely used format for sharing and preserving high-quality vector graphics, making them an essential asset in professional design workflows.

The STL, or Standard Triangle Language, file format has been around since the '80s and is supported by most modern 3D modelling applications. In particular, the STL format has become something of a standard format within the area of 3D printing, despite the rise of more modern formats such as 3MF.

STL files come in two flavours: binary or text format. The text format is human-readable, making it easy to perform manual edits, but can lead to very large file sizes. As you can imagine, the binary format is much more compact and represents the majority of the STL files you are likely to encounter.

The format itself is very simple; the 3D model is represented by a sequential list of triangles, with each triangle defined with 3 points consisting of their X, Y, and Z positions, along with an additional vector that contains the face normal (the direction the face is pointing). There is an additional attribute block for each triangle; however, this is largely unused and thus unsupported.

Information for converting from EPS to STL

Our EPS converter will convert your EPS file to a 3D model using the Heightmap process whereby 2D pixels, based on their luminosity, are converted into 3D space to create a full 3D STL model ready for download for further processing in your favourite 3D editing package or for printing on a 3D printer.

Frequently Asked Questions

How can I convert my EPS file to STL?

First click the "Upload..." button, select your EPS file to upload. Your EPS file will be uploaded to our servers. When the EPS to STL conversion has completed, you can download your STL file straight away.

How long does it take to convert my EPS to STL?

We aim to process all EPS 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.

How accurate is the EPS to STL conversion?

We aim to provide the best conversion experience. Our tools are under constant review and development with new features being added every week.

How is the 3D model generated from my EPS image?

Our tool uses a Heightmap process whereby the STL 3D model is created based on the luminosity of the individual pixels in you EPS image.

Is there a limit to the size of my image?

Yes, to ensure our tool converts the EPS image quickly and with a reasonable final file size, your tool will resize any image larger than 600x600 pixels.
