Convert AMF to STL via Java

AMF to STL conversion using Java library without any 3D modeling software.

How to Convert AMF to STL Using Java

In order to render AMF to STL, we’ll use

Aspose.3D for Java

API which is a feature-rich, powerful and easy to use conversion API for Java platform. You can download its latest version directly from

Aspose Maven Repository

and install it within your Maven-based project by adding the following configurations to the pom.xml.

Steps to Convert AMF to STL via Java

Java programmers can easily convert AMF file to STL in just a few lines of code.

  1. Load AMF file via the constructor of Scene class
  2. Create an instance of StlSaveOptions
  3. Set STL specific properties for advanced conversion
  4. Call Scene.save method
  5. Pass the output path with STL file extension & object of StlSaveOptions

System Requirements

Before running the Java conversion code, 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 3D Scene Manipulation Library

    Aspose.3D is a CAD and Gameware API to load, modify and convert 3D files. API is a standalone and does not require any any 3D modeling or rendering software. One can easily use API for Discreet3DS, WavefrontOBJ, STL (ASCII, Binary), Universal3D, FBX (ASCII, Binary), Collada, glTF, PLY, GLB, DirectX and more formats.

    AMF What is AMF File Format

    Additive Manufacturing file format (AMF) defines open standards for objects description in order to be utilized by additive manufacturing processes such as 3D Printing. CAD programs use the AMF file format by making use of the information such as geometry, color and material of the objects. AMF is different than STL format as the lateral does not support color, materials, lattices, and constellations.

    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. Resultant data is used by applications to determine the cross section of the 3D shape to be built by the fabber. There is no information available in the STL file format for representation of colour, texture or other common CAD model attributes.
