VTK to STL Converter
Select files for conversion or just drag and drop them to the upload area
How to convert VTK files to STL online?
Click "Choose File" button to select a vtk file on your computer. VTK file size can be up to 50 Mb.
Convert VTK to STL
Click "Convert" button to start conversion.
Download your STL
When the conversion process is complete, you can download the STL file.
- First you need to add file for conversion: drag and drop your VTK file or click the "Choose File" button. Then click the "Convert" button. When VTK to STL conversion is completed, you can download your STL file.
- Mesh conversion is pretty fast. You can change VTK to STL 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 VTK to STL) is absolutely safe.
- Yes, you can use AnyConv on any operating system that has a web browser. Our VTK to STL converter works online and does not require software installation.
Information about VTK and STL file formats
|Full name||Visualization Toolkit Data File||Stereolithography File Format|
|Developed by||Kitware Inc.||3D Systems|
|Type of format|
|Description||The Visualization Toolkit (VTK) is open source software for manipulating and displaying scientific data. It comes with state-of-the-art tools for 3D rendering, a suite of widgets for 3D interaction, and extensive 2D plotting capability. VTK is part of Kitware’s collection of supported platforms for software development. The platform is used worldwide in commercial applications, as well as in research and development.||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.|
