The STL format specifies both ASCII and binary representations. Binary files are more common as they are more compact.
What file format do 3D printers use?
STL files describe only the surface geometry of a three-dimensional object without any representation of color, texture, or other common CAD model attributes. The STL format specifies both ASCII and binary representations. STL files do not contain scale information and units are arbitrary.
