What file format you need for 3D Printing Dubai?
What file format you need for 3D Printing Dubai – Inoventive 3D Printing Dubai, the largest 3D Printing service provider in Middle East region often face questions on file formats for 3D Printing. In fact, file formats may differ from how you generate it. If you are generating a 3D file from a scanner, file format may differ. In case, if you are generating from 3D related software, format can be different. But most commonly we at Inoventive 3D, prefer to have .STL files or .OBJ files.
STL files are commonly used as 3D Printing file (STL stands for Stereolithography and STL files consist of facet data). This file will be having an approximation of the original 3D model in a single colour and they are a triangular representation of a 3-dimensional object. Even, if we don’t get any colors, textures or material details with STL files, still it is the most preferable and supported file format by majority of 3D Printers.
For any simple 3D Printing STL is the best option as it is light and widely supported file format as industry standard. In case, if you are specific about colors and textures and the same has to be 3D Printed, then OBJ files are the best. If we speak about various geometries, we recommend OBJ files than STL.
