What Are the OBJ/STL File Import Rules?

Last Updated: Mar 31, 2017 11:58AM PDT

File size limit is 100 MB.

STL Import Rules

  • Both Binary and ASCII STL formats are supported


OBJ Import Rules

  • Dimensional units should be in millimeters
  • Y & Z axis should not be reversed (if 3D application supports it)

In general it is preferable to use the .STL format since the .STL format retains the original dimensions of the design when being uploaded to the New Matter Store and provides a smoother experience. With .OBJ files you may notice that your file scales up to a larger size or down to a smaller size during the upload process, and may need to be adjusted using the scaling controls contained in the New Matter Store.
