Convert your STL file to MP4

to

Create 3D animations with our easy to use and free tool. Our tool lets you upload a STL (Standard Triangle Language) 3D model file and from this, create an animated MP4 (MPEG-4) file that you can then download and share without the need for any complex 3D modelling software.

Click the "Upload a File" button and select a STL to upload. The maximum file size is 100MB.

Select your Options

Set the dimensions and other options and click the "Convert to MP4" button to convert your STL to MP4.

Download your MP4

Click the download link once completed to receive your MP4 file.

Frequently Asked Questions

How can I convert my STL file to MP4?

First click the "Upload..." button, select your STL file to upload. Select any configuration options. When the STL to MP4 conversion has completed, you can download your MP4 file straight away.

How long does it take to convert my STL to MP4?

We aim to process all STL to MP4 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 STL to MP4 conversion?

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.

Is it safe to convert my STL to MP4 on ImageToStl.com?

Yes, of course! We do not store the STL file you submit to us. The resulting MP4 file, once created is deleted 15 minutes after upload and the download link will expire after this time.

Can I convert STL to MP4 on Windows, Linux, Android, iOS or Mac OS?

Yes! Our STL to MP4 tool will run on any system with a modern web browser. No specialist software is needed to run any of our conversion tools.

What if I am using an Ad Blocker, will that affect things?

Yes. Although you can use an Ad Blocker, if you like our STL 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.

What STL formats can I convert from?

You can convert from both text and binary STL files. If your STL file contains color information we will bring this over.

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

Description

The MP4 video format is a standard format for video encoding and storage. In order to minimize the file sizes the format employs a lossy compression method which reduces the amount of data to store the video content without any noticeable loss in quality.

Due to their small size and efficient compression methods the MP4 format is ideally suited to online video streaming. The MP4 format may use a variety of CODECs which are usually supported by most MP4 players with additional CODECs downloadable if needed.
