Some 3D modeling programs can process .stl files used in 3D printing and recover the data back to the original 3D model or part file (.prt). For example SolidWorks has this function, but you may probably find other programs capable of this conversion.
Convert Stereolithography CAD file to CAD 3D part or component.
We have found 2 software records in our database eligible for .stl to .prt file format conversion.
Microsoft Windows software - convert stl to prt on Windows
A popular is 2D and 3D CAD (computer-aided design) and CAE (computer-aided engineering) construction software for Microsoft Windows developed by SolidWorks Corporation.
SolidWorks is distributed in three distributions: Solidworks Premium, Solidworks Professional and SolidWorks Standard.
Convert from stl file
to prt file
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 prt. 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.
Pro/Engineer is integrated 3D CAD/CAM/CAE solution used to mechanical engineering, design and manufacturing. First version was released in 1997. Pro/Engineer runs on Microsoft Windows and Unix. In 2010 Pro/Engineer was renamed on Creo Elements/Pro.
