PLEASE NOTE: The .stl file format does not contain color information.

  • You can use an online conversion tool like meshconvert.com or greentoken.de
  • You convert it with the free Meshlab conversion tool.
  • You can import your 3D print model into free 3D modeling software like Sketchup, FreeCad or Blender — or a professional tool like Autodesk, Rhino or Solidworks — and then export into a supported file format.

What is the Maximum Supported File Size for a 3D Print Model

Currently, it is 64 MB.

What is the Meaning of “Full-Color 3D Print Model”?

It’s important to note that the .stl file format does not contain color information. For .stl files, the only color option is the color of the material.

But if you would like to have a 3D print in full color, then you must have a 3D print model containing color information. You can upload a ZIP archive containing a full color 3D model file (.obj + .mtl, .dae or .wrl) and related texture files (.jpg, .gif or .png). Now you can choose a full-color material.

Remember, .stl files will not work for this option.
