Here are 2 simple steps to convert your STL to XYZ using our fast and free STL converter tool.
|Full Name||Standard Triangle Language|
|Opens With||Blender, MeshLab, CAD Assistant, DAZ Studio|
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.

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.
|Full Name||Point Cloud|
|Type||3D Model/Point Cloud|
The XYZ is a 3D file format used for representing 3D Point Clouds. The format contains only positional information (X, Y, Z coordinates) for the individual points. The format is often used for digital elevation modelling of terrain for later processing in 3D modelling applications.
As the format only contains positional information a common task is to convert this into a fully surfaced 3D model using methods such as Alpha Shapes or Delaunay Triangulation. The format can also be viewed without further processing in its raw format.
XYZ Converter Capabilities
When converting your STL to XYZ our tool will attempt to accurately convert any color/material information.
Your STL file will be converted to a XYZ file using our unified 3D model and mesh conversion tool. Our STL 3D tool performs accurate conversions of 3D elements such as vertices, faces, normals and relevant material information. As both STL and XYZ support color material information our tool will also attempt to convert the color information too.
First click the "Upload..." button, select your STL file to upload. Your STL file will be uploaded to our servers. When the STL to XYZ conversion has completed, you can download your XYZ file straight away.
We aim to process all STL to XYZ conversions as quickly as possible, this usually takes around 5 seconds however this can be longer for certain files, so please be patient.
Our STL conversion tool will extract only the vertex data from your STL file. This will then be used to create the final XYZ file.
