    STL Parser

    STL-parser is a transform stream which convert STL-files to newline separated JSON events for each face. Check out jsonlines.org for a detailed specification of the jsonl format.

    Installation

    As a module for your project:

    npm install stl-parser

    As a command line program:

    npm install -g stl-parser

    Usage

    Command Line Interface

    cat test.stl | stl-parser

    This emits a jsonl file-stream with header and facet events. The cli flags --ascii and --binary can be used to enforce parsing with the specified file-encoding.

    Javascript API

    var stlParser = require('stl-parser'),
        stlStream = fs.createReadStream('/path/to/stl/file.stl'),
        outputFile = fs.createWriteStream('/path/to/export/file.jsonl')
     
    stlStream
        .pipe(stlParser())
        .pipe(outputFile)

    There is also the possibility to use it buffered and get one javascript object for the whole STL. This should, however, only be used for small files.

    var stlParser = require('stl-parser'),
        stl = fs.readFileSync('/path/to/stl/file.stl')
     
    stlParser(stl).on('data', (data) =>
        fs.writeFileSync('/path/to/export/file.json', data)
    )
