STL (STereoLithography) is a Tessellation format supported by many CAD systems. It is widely used for rapid prototyping and computer-aided manufacturing. STL describes only the surface geometry of a three-dimensional object without any representation of color, texture or other common CAD model attributes. The STL format get both ASCII and binary representations.

CAD Interop distributes several solutions to view, exchange and validate STL files. We offer custom solution to meet every unique need:

  • Spinfire CADtoCAD translator

    SpinFire CAD2CAD Translator enables multi-CAD data exchange support. With CAD2CAD, you can work more efficiently by smoothly and accurately converting multiple 3D formats. Your team will benefit from the richness of the data that is translated, including visualization (tessellations), product structure, precise B-rep, Product Manufacturing Information (PMI) as well as attributes and metadata. CAD2CAD enables you to share and integrate your product data into a varietyof workflows by accurately converting it into common CAD formats.
