Convert Portable Network Graphic to Stereolithography CAD data.

We have found 3 software records in our database eligible for .png to .stl file format conversion.

It is highly unlikely you can directly convert png to stl, i.e. just take any random PNG pictures and convert them to STL format for 3D printing.

Nevertheless, some programs may offer tools to process "png slices" and recreate a 3D model from it, which can then be used for the purposes of 3D printing. Sometimes shades of gray are used to define the "plasticity" of the 3D model, but that works only for a very specific kind of .png images, but this is actually the closest thing to a png to stl conversion.

The tables with software actions are a good pointer for what a certain program does with various file types and often may give users a good hint how to perform certain file conversion, for example the above-mentioned png to stl. However, it is not perfect and sometimes can show results which are not really usable because of how certain programs work with files and the possible conversion is thus actually not possible at all.
