STL file reader to calculate volume, surface area and bounding box of 3D model ( .stl file)

Produce a script that can read binary .stl files to calculate the following parameters:

bounding box (width, height, depth)

surface area


No UI design work required. You can find a script that runs a similar job on the client's computer on this site: However, in our case we want the script to run server side, here is the flow:

[url removed, login to view] page:

1.1 User selects unit of measure (inch, cm or mm) from a drop down and uploads .stl file

1.2 Data is posted to external script

[url removed, login to view] script:

2.1 Calculate the following parameters of the .stl file in the selected unit (inch, cm or mm) and return the information to the "results page":

bounding box (width, height, depth)

surface area


2.2 Save the .stl file via sftp

[url removed, login to view] page:

3.1 Display:

bounding box (width, height, depth)

surface area


unit of measure (as selected by user on "upload page)

file name of .stl file and URL of saved file
