A VOX file is a three-dimensional file format commonly used in computer graphics and game development to represent volumetric data. Unlike traditional polygonal models that are made up of interconnected vertices, edges, and faces, a voxel-based model represents objects in a grid of three-dimensional pixels called voxels. Each voxel contains information about its position in 3D space and attributes such as color or density. This format is particularly well-suited for representing complex and detailed structures, as it provides a way to capture the interior of an object, making it suitable for applications such as medical imaging, simulation, and virtual reality.

The term VOX file refers to the file extension commonly associated with MagicaVoxel, a popular voxel editing software. MagicaVoxel allows users to create and manipulate voxel-based models, and the resulting designs can be saved in the VOX file format. These files store not only the spatial information of the voxels but also color, transparency, and other properties assigned to each voxel. The VOX file format has gained popularity in the gaming community and creative industries due to its simplicity and efficiency in representing complex 3D environments and objects.

When working with VOX files, developers and artists can leverage them in various applications, including video games, animations, and virtual reality experiences. The voxel data can be interpreted and rendered in real-time, providing an immersive and dynamic visual experience. Additionally, the compact nature of voxel data makes it well-suited for scenarios where memory and processing resources are limited. As technology continues to advance, voxel-based representations are likely to play an increasingly significant role in the creation of realistic and interactive virtual worlds.

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.

When converting your VOX to STL our tool will attempt to accurately convert any color/material information.

Information for converting from VOX to STL

Your VOX file will be converted to a STL file using our unified 3D model and mesh conversion tool. Our VOX 3D tool performs accurate conversions of 3D elements such as vertices, faces, normals and relevant material information. As both VOX and STL support color material information our tool will also attempt to convert the color information too.
