Information about PDB and STL file formats

Full name PalmDOC eBook File Stereolithography File Format
File extension .pdb .stl
MIME type application/vnd.palm
Developed by Palm, Inc. 3D Systems
Type of format eBook File
Description The .pdb file extension is a database format used for the Palm OS platform. The PalmDOC eBook file type is a version of the PDB format. The proliferation of eBooks has left this format behind due to the lack of support for DRM protection meaning only royalty free text is typically available. 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 The format supports reflowable content however the format lacks some of the features found in more modern eBook formats, for example only providing a very basic contents table. The format features RLE compression which was crucial because the format was designed for the low storage capacity Palm devices of the 1990s. 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.
