Information about HEIC and STL file formats

Name HEIC STL
Full name HEIC, High Efficiency Image Format Stereolithography File Format
File extension .heic .stl
MIME type
Developed by Moving Pictures Experts Group 3D Systems
Type of format Raster image
Description HEIC is the new standard image format introduced by Apple with its 2017 update from iOS 10 to iOS 11. It is also known under the acronym of HEIF, which stands for High-Efficiency Image Format. The HEIC format was developed by MPEG (Moving Picture Experts Group), otherwise known for video and audio formats such as MP3 or MP4. Being the new default or standard image format for iOS 11 devices, HEIC was designed to replace the JPG format. As a result, it's smaller in size with comparable quality while also supporting transparency. Furthermore, HEIC files can contain several images which fit Apple's "Live Photo" functionality. Furthermore, it stores information about image editing like rotation and cropping, which enables the user to revert the changes later on. STL is a file format native to the stereolithography CAD software created by 3D Systems. Many other software packages support this file format. It is widely used for rapid prototyping, 3D printing, and computer-aided manufacturing. STL files describe only the surface geometry of a three-dimensional object without representing color, texture, or other common CAD model attributes. The STL format specifies both ASCII and binary representations. Binary files are more common since they are more compact.
Technical details The lossy compressed HEIC format is based on HEVC (High-Efficiency Video Compression), also developed by MPEG. With transparency and the ability to store more than one image, HEIC files can also contain 16-bit colors, whereas JPG files can only support 8-bit. However, HEIC files still have compatibility issues, even though they are already posted and saved to social media or cloud storage as JPG images since they are automatically converted. Third-party apps or computer programs can still have difficulties interpreting HEIC files, though. Luckily, you can disable saving images as HEIC on an iOS 11 device by going to Settings > Camera > Formats > Most Compatible, which will force iOS 11 to save images in the JPEG format. An STL file describes a raw, unstructured triangulated surface by the unit normal and vertices (ordered by the right-hand rule) of the triangles using a three-dimensional Cartesian coordinate system. All STL coordinates were required to be positive numbers in the original specification, but this restriction is no longer enforced, and negative coordinates are commonly encountered in STL files today. As a result, STL files contain no scale information, and the units are arbitrary.
