Compress STL via Java
Compress STL using Java library without any 3D modeling software.
How to Compress STL File Using Java
In order to compress STL file, we’ll use
API which is a feature-rich, powerful and easy to use compression API for Java platform. You can download its latest version directly from
and install it within your Maven-based project by adding the following configurations to the pom.xml.
<name>Aspose Java API</name>
<version>version of aspose-3d API</version>
Steps to Compress STL via Java
Java programmers can easily compress STL in just a few lines of code.
- Load STL file via the constructor of Scene class
- Define the output path of the compressed file
- Create an instance of SaveOptions
- Call the Scene.Save method with object
Aspose.3D for JAVA is supported on all major operating systems. Just make sure that you have the following prerequisites.
- Microsoft Windows or a compatible OS with Java Runtime Environment for JSP/JSF Application and Desktop Applications.
- Get latest version of Aspose.3D for Java directly from Maven.
JAVA code to Compress STL
//The source file to be compressed and the output file after saving
String file = "template.stl";
String output = "outFile.fbx";
// create an instance of Scene
Scene scene = new Scene(file);
//Save the compressed format you want

STL What is STL File Format?
STL, abbreviation for stereolithrography, is an interchangeable file format that represents 3-dimensional surface geometry. The file format finds its usage in several fields such as rapid prototyping, 3D printing and computer-aided manufacturing. It represents a surface as a series of small triangles, known as facets, where each facet is described by a perpendicular direction and three points representing the vertices of the triangle.Read More
