The EPS file format was originally created back in 1987 by the then founders of Adobe and Aldus. The format went on to become the base format used by Adobe Illustrator. The format started out on Apple Macintoshes with later adaptations for the Windows Operating System.

An EPS file is a vector graphics file format capable of high quality rendering without loss of detail when scaled up. The format, although vector based, also contains a bitmap preview of the final file to enable the computers of the 1980's with limited processing power to easily render a file preview without needing to parse the full vector file.

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.

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.
