Convert STL to FBX via C#

Render STL as FBX without any 3D modeling and rendering software.

How to Convert STL to FBX Using C#

In order to convert STL to FBX, we’ll use

Aspose.3D for .NET

API which is a feature-rich, powerful and easy to use document manipulation and conversion API for C# platform. Open

NuGet

package manager, search for Aspose.3D and install. You may also use the following command from the Package Manager Console.

Package Manager Console Command


PM> Install-Package Aspose.3D

Steps to Convert STL to FBX via C#

.NET programmers can easily load & convert STL files to FBX in just a few lines of code.

  1. Load STL file via the constructor of Scene class
  2. Create an instance of FbxSaveOptions
  3. Set FBX specific properties for advanced conversion
  4. Call the Scene.Save method
  5. Pass the output path with FBX file extension & object of FbxSaveOptions
  6. Check resultant FBX file at specified path

System Requirements

Before running the .NET conversion code, make sure that you have the following prerequisites.

  • Microsoft Windows or a compatible OS with .NET Framework, .NET Core, Mono.
  • Development environment like Microsoft Visual Studio.
  • Aspose.3D for .NET DLL referenced in your project.
  • A 3D File Processing Library to manipulate 3D files without any modeling and rendering software. The 3D API supports Discreet3DS, WavefrontOBJ, FBX (ASCII, Binary), STL (ASCII, Binary), Universal3D, Collada, glTF, GLB, PLY, DirectX, Google Draco file formats and more. Developers can create, read, convert, modify and control the substance of 3D document formats easily.

    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.

    fbx What is fbx File Format

    FBX, FilmBox, is a popular 3D file format that was originally developed by Kaydara for MotionBuilder. It was acquired by Autodesk Inc in 2006 and is now one of the main 3D exchange formats as used by many 3D tools. FBX is available in both binary and ASCII file format. The format was established to provided interoperability between digital content creation applications. There are many tools available for conversion from/to FBX file format.
