Convert Your 3D Mesh/Model DXF Files to STL

to

Our free and fast tool will convert most 3D mesh or DXF (Drawing Exchange Format) model 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 DXF file click the Upload button above and select the file to convert. Once selected, the file will be converted to a STL file and will ready for download shortly afterwards. For more information about the DXF to STL conversion process see the conversion information section below for more information.

FAQ

What STL formats can I convert to?

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.

How can I convert my DXF file to STL?

First click the "Upload..." button, select your DXF file to upload. Select any configuration options. When the DXF to STL conversion has completed, you can download your STL file straight away.

How long does it take to convert my DXF to STL?

We aim to process all DXF 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.

How accurate is the DXF to STL conversion?

We aim to create the most accurate conversions with our tools. Our tools are under constant development with new features being added every week.

Is it safe to convert my DXF to STL on ImageToStl.com?

Yes, of course! We do not store the DXF file you submit to us. The resulting STL file, once created is deleted 1 hour after upload and the download link will expire after this time.

Can I convert DXF to STL on Windows, Linux, Android, iOS or Mac OS?

Yes! Our DXF 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.

DXF Notes

When imported, DXF files will be converted to 3D geometry comprising vertices and faces using an Extrude method, the extrusion value can be set before the conversion starts. If the DXF file contains color information this will be included where possible.

Supported Features

  • Mesh geometry
  • Mesh colors

STL Notes

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.

Supported Features

  • Mesh geometry
  • Face colors via the VisCAM and SolidView formats
  • Binary and Text versions supported
