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 HEIF file to STL?

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

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

We aim to process all HEIF 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 HEIF 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 HEIF to STL on ImageToStl.com?

Yes, of course! We do not store the HEIF 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 HEIF to STL on Windows, Linux, Android, iOS or Mac OS?

Yes! Our HEIF 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.

File format information for HEIF to STL

Extension: HEIF

Full Name: High Efficiency Image File Format

Type: Image

Mime Type: image/heif

Format: Binary

Description

The HEIF is a modern image format with the final specification completed in 2015. The format is a container format which whilst mostly used for storing image data the format can actually support video, audio and text data streams.

HEIF files are binary in nature and offer an alternative to existing digital photo formats such as JPEG featuring better compression whilst retaining comparable image quality. In some cases the file size can be 50% that of the equivalent JPG file.

Extension: STL

Full Name: Standard Triangle Language

Type: 3D Model

Mime Type: application/vnd.ms-pki.stl

Format: Text & Binary

Description

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.

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
