File format information for STL to JPG

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

Standard STL files do not contain material or color information so this cannot be imported. There are however two formats (VisCAM and SolidView) that attempted to add color information to the STL file format. If our tool detects this additional color information it will attempt to import this information.

Supported Features

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

Extension: JPG

Full Name: Joint Photographic Experts Group

Type: Image

Mime Type: image/jpeg

Format: Binary

Description

The JPG file format is a popular image format most commonly used for the storage of digital photographs. The format implements a lossy-compression technology that allows for high levels of file compression with little perceptible loss of image quality making it an ideal format for photographs.

This format is one of the most used formats on the internet today with its small file sizes making it ideal for website images. Although there are newer image formats that may offer higher compression and quality the JPG is still and idela format for digital photos.
