An STL file, short for Stereolithography, is a widely used file format in 3D printing and computer-aided design (CAD) applications. It serves as a standard method to represent the surface geometry of a three-dimensional object. The format was first developed by 3D Systems in 1987 and has since become a fundamental file type in the additive manufacturing industry. STL files are essential in the process of converting digital 3D models into physical objects through 3D printing technology.
STL files consist of a collection of triangular facets that approximate the shape of the 3D model. The surface of the object is divided into numerous small triangles, forming a mesh representation. Each triangle is defined by three vertices in 3D space and possesses information about its orientation and size. Since STL files store only the outer surface of the model, they are often referred to as "mesh" files or "surface" files, as they lack information about the object's internal structure or color.
When using STL files for 3D printing, slicing software processes the 3D model by dividing it into layers and creating the instructions for the 3D printer to build the object layer by layer. Despite its simplicity and widespread usage, STL files have some limitations. They do not support color or texture information, and the triangle-based representation can lead to larger file sizes and reduced accuracy compared to other file formats. Nonetheless, STL remains a vital format in the 3D printing ecosystem due to its simplicity and compatibility with a wide range of 3D printers and software.
STL Converter Capabilities
When converting 3D Model/Mesh files using our STL converter we will attempt to convert color materials into a suitable format for use in the converted file.
An MP4 file, short for MPEG-4 Part 14, is a widely used digital multimedia container format. It was developed by the Moving Picture Experts Group (MPEG) and is designed to store various types of multimedia content, such as video, audio, subtitles, and images, all within a single file. MP4 files are known for their efficient compression, which allows for high-quality media representation while keeping file sizes relatively small. This makes them ideal for streaming and sharing media over the internet or other digital platforms.
MP4 files are compatible with a wide range of devices and media players, including computers, smartphones, tablets, and smart TVs. The format's versatility and widespread support have contributed to its popularity in both personal and professional contexts. Many online platforms, such as YouTube and social media networks, utilize MP4 as their default video format due to its efficient streaming capabilities and broad compatibility.
Due to its flexibility, MP4 has become the standard format for storing video content in various applications, from capturing home videos on smartphones to distributing high-definition movies. Additionally, its ability to include multiple data streams, like audio tracks, subtitles, and chapter information, makes it a valuable choice for content creators and multimedia enthusiasts seeking a unified solution to store and share their creations.
The STL 3D format does not support animations within our conversion tool so our tool will create a simple 360 degree rotating 3D animation that will be rendered to a MP4 file ready for download.
First click the "Upload..." button, select your STL file to upload. Your STL file will be uploaded to our servers. When the STL to MP4 conversion has completed, you can download your MP4 file straight away.
We aim to process all STL to MP4 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.
If your STL file contains an animation then our tool will create a MP4 file containing the full length animation. If there is no animation present our tool will use a simple rotation animation.
