STL to OBJ Converter
Select files for conversion or just drag and drop them to the upload area
How to convert STL files to OBJ online?
Click "Choose File" button to select a stl file on your computer. STL file size can be up to 50 Mb.
Convert STL to OBJ
Click "Convert" button to start conversion.
Download your OBJ
When the conversion process is complete, you can download the OBJ file.
- First you need to add file for conversion: drag and drop your STL file or click the "Choose File" button. Then click the "Convert" button. When STL to OBJ conversion is completed, you can download your OBJ file.
- Mesh conversion is pretty fast. You can change STL to OBJ in a few seconds.
- Of course! We delete uploaded files immediately, and converted ones after 24 hours. No one has access to your files. File conversion (including STL to OBJ) is absolutely safe.
- Yes, you can use AnyConv on any operating system that has a web browser. Our STL to OBJ converter works online and does not require software installation.
Information about STL and OBJ file formats
|Full name||Stereolithography File Format||OBJ geometry format|
|Developed by||3D Systems||Wavefront Technologies|
|Type of format|
|Description||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.||OBJ (or .obj) is a geometry definition file format first developed by Wavefront Technologies for its Advanced Visualizer animation package. The file format is open and has been adopted by other 3D graphics application vendors.|
|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.||The OBJ file format is a simple data-format that represents 3D geometry alone — namely, the position of each vertex, the UV position of each texture coordinate vertex, vertex normals, and the faces that make each polygon defined as a list of vertices, and texture vertices. Vertices are stored in a counter-clockwise order by default, making explicit declaration of face normals unnecessary. OBJ coordinates have no units, but OBJ files can contain scale information in a human readable comment line.|
