Compress STL via Python
Build your own Python apps to compress STL files using server-side APIs.
How to Compress STL File Using Python
In order to compress STL file, we’ll use
API which is a feature-rich, powerful and easy to use API for Python platform to be used with compress any 3D file. Open
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 Compress STL via Python
Aspose.3D makes it easy for the developers to compress the STL file with just 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 Python is supported on all major operating systems. Just make sure that you have the following prerequisites.
- Microsoft Windows or Linux based OS.
- Python 3.5 or later.
- Aspose.3D for Python referenced in your project.
About Aspose.3D for Python APIAspose.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.
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
