Convert Stereolithography CAD data to AutoCAD DXF Drawing Exchange Format.

We have found 22 software records in our database eligible for .stl to .dxf file format conversion.

Stereolithography CAD files for 3D printing (.stl) are well supported in various CAD programs and can be used for conversion purposes. However, only geometry from these files can be typically converted.

You can for example save the various parts as 2D drawings in DXF format or something different. Some tools capable of stl to dxf conversion are listed below.

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 stl to dxf. 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.
