Intagly exclusively accepts .STL file types. STL files are universally recognized across various 3D printers, regardless of the printer type, making them the most commonly used file in 3D printing. The primary reason behind this is their ability to be converted into any format that your specific printer can interpret.

If you do not have a .STL file keep reading on. If you have a .STL, you can upload your file at https://intagly.app/Request_Print/Upload

What if I have an OBJ File?
