Our free and fast tool will convert most Rhinoceros 3D 3DM model and mesh files to a standard STL (Standard Triangle Language) file that can then be edited further in most popular 3D editing packages such as Blender or 3D printed without any further processing.
To convert your 3DM file click the Upload button and select the file you wish to convert. Once selected, the file will be converted to the STL format and will be ready to download shortly afterwards. For more information about the 3DM to STL conversion process see the conversion information section below for more information.
Here are 2 simple steps to convert your 3DM to STL.
Our tool will save all STL files in binary format. Optionally, our tool will allow you to save to the non-standard color STL format.
First click the "Upload..." button, select your 3DM file to upload. Select any configuration options. When the 3DM to STL conversion has completed, you can download your STL file straight away.
We aim to process all 3DM to STL conversions as quickly as possible, this usually takes around 5 seconds but can be more for larger more complex files so please be patient.
We aim to create the most accurate conversions with our tools. Our tools are under constant development with new features and improvements being added every week.
Yes, of course! We do not store the 3DM file you submit to us. The resulting STL file, once created is deleted 15 minutes after upload and the download link will expire after this time.
Yes! Our 3DM to STL tool will run on any system with a modern web browser. No specialist software is needed to run any of our conversion tools.
Yes. Although you can use an Ad Blocker, if you like our 3DM conversion tool please consider white-listing our site. When an Ad Blocker is enabled there are some conversion limits on some of our tools and processing/conversion times will be longer.
|Full Name||Rhinoceros 3D|
The 3DM format also known as Rhino3D or Rhinoceros 3D is a 3D graphics model file format developed and used in CAD applications, Industrial Design and 3D Printing. The format has some compatibility with Adobe Illustrator and can be exported as an AI file using vector graphics.
Although it is a 3D file format it stores data in the NURBS geometry format which allows for greater mathematically precision compared to triangle/polygon based mesh geometry formats such as STL. Along with support for converting between other CAD formats the 3DM format can also supports two different scripting languages.
If your 3DM file contains textures, these will be ignored. If a material contains color information this will be translated where possible.
|Full Name||Standard Triangle Language|
|Format||Text & Binary|
|Open 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.
The standard STL file format does not support colored faces or vertices or texture information. The STL file generated by the tool will contain only raw mesh/triangle data by default which is perfect for 3D printing.
The tool also has an option to save the file to one of the non-standard formats that support colored faces such as VisCAM and SolidView which is perfect if you want to further process the STL in software which supports these formats.
