WebP is a modern image format developed by Google that aims to provide better compression and improved quality compared to traditional formats like JPEG and PNG. The name "WebP" stands for "Web Picture," highlighting its primary purpose of enhancing web performance. This format uses both lossless and lossy compression techniques, allowing users to choose between higher quality or smaller file sizes depending on their needs.
In terms of technical details, WebP files support both lossy and lossless compression. For lossy compression, it employs predictive coding to predict color values and stores only the differences between the predicted values and the actual image data. This results in smaller file sizes without significant loss of visual quality. For lossless compression, it uses the WebP Lossless format, which supports alpha channels for transparency, similar to PNG files.
The main advantage of WebP files lies in their ability to significantly reduce image file sizes without compromising image quality, leading to faster loading times and improved website performance. However, it's worth noting that while WebP has gained popularity and is widely supported in modern web browsers, older browsers may not fully support it, necessitating the use of fallback formats to ensure compatibility across all users' devices.

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.
Our WEBP converter will convert your WEBP 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.
First click the "Upload..." button, select your WEBP file to upload. Your WEBP file will be uploaded to our servers. When the WEBP to STL conversion has completed, you can download your STL file straight away.
We aim to process all WEBP to STL 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.
Our tool uses a Heightmap process whereby the STL 3D model is created based on the luminosity of the individual pixels in you WEBP image.
Yes, to ensure our tool converts the WEBP image quickly and with a reasonable final file size, your tool will resize any image larger than 600x600 pixels.
