An STL file describes the surface geometry of 3D objects and they are commonly used 3D printing, rapid prototyping, etc. While the USDZ files are getting popular to be used in augmented reality scenarios. They are the uncompressed ZIP archives that contain Universal Scene Description information. In certain cases, you may need to convert an STL file to USDZ format. According to such scenarios, this article explains how to convert an STL file to USDZ format programmatically in Java.
