Would anyone here be kind enough to change an stl file to a step file for me? I’ve read somewhere that it’s possible, but not on iOS :slightly_frowning_face:

Thanks in advance


Hi, send it to and we’ll convert it for you :slight_smile:

Thats awesome that you guys can do that. I have a bunch of stl files that need converting too. When do you think we will be able to import stl files into shapr?

Hi, we don’t have an ETA for it, it’s a really complicated procedure and often gives unusable results. I used FreeCAD to convert for Rob, because he didn’t have his laptop with him that time and it was urgent. Freecad is - as its name implies - free for anyone to download. I’m sorry if I gave the wrong impression, we generally don’t have the capacity to take on requests such as this, it’s better for everyone if we use that time to implement new features / fix bugs :slight_smile: hope you understand

Hey Tamas, ive tried using Freecad myself to convert stl - step, however without any luck, following this guide to the teeth.

I’m assuming this is also the way you’re doing it, or do you have some other way to go about it?


So, actually we don’t support STL import. At some point we will, however, currently we don’t. Every attempt to convert STL to shapr, is a hack and won’t give quality results. Here is why: Explanation of export/import formats supported by Shapr3D
