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 3D Model/Mesh files using our [ey] converter we will attempt to convert color materials into a suitable format for use in the converted file.

ExtensionMP4

The MP4 video format is a standard format for video encoding and storage. In order to minimize the file sizes the format employs a lossy compression method which reduces the amount of data to store the video content without any noticeable loss in quality.

Due to their small size and efficient compression methods the MP4 format is ideally suited to online video streaming. The MP4 format may use a variety of CODECs which are usually supported by most MP4 players with additional CODECs downloadable if needed.
