Information about MAX and STL file formats

Full name 3ds Max Scene File Stereolithography File Format
File extension .max .stl
MIME type
Developed by Autodesk 3D Systems
Type of format
Description 3ds Max (3D modeling, animation and rendering software) three-dimensional scene file with several models which contain wireframes, textures, lighting effects, shading, animation and other three-dimensional design elements. It is used to develop professional graphics for games, movies and TV. STL is a file format native to the stereolithography CAD software created by 3D Systems. This file format is supported by many other software packages. 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 any representation of 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 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. In the original specification, all STL coordinates were required to be positive numbers, but this restriction is no longer enforced and negative coordinates are commonly encountered in STL files today. STL files contain no scale information, and the units are arbitrary.
