The STL (Standard Tessellation Language or STereoLithography) file format is the most commonly used format for 3D printing.
When used with a 3D slicer, it allows a computer to communicate with the 3D printer hardware, printing a model.
Since its humble beginnings, many CAD software packages have adopted and supported the STL file format.
It is a 3D printing process and corresponding file type created by Chuck Hull at 3D Systems in the 1980s. It is for rapid prototyping, 3D printing, and computer-aided manufacturing.

Collapsing Lightsaber Free STL Author Recognition
We thank 3D Printing World for this incredible Collapsing Lightsaber STL
This is a collapsing Lightsaber designed to be printed as one part. It’s only 205mm high when printed but expands to over 950mm in total length.
The sword is designed to be printed with a 4mm nozzle. The blade will be two shells thick. He mentions that had weird issues with blobs and zits at retraction. It normally doesn’t have that until he turns on “wipe” and “coast”.
He believes that this is a result of the thin walls with a narrow amount of clearance between the blade segments. He says he had good luck with .15mm coast and 3mm wipe, on his MK3.
There is a test print file included. He advises using this to confirm that your segments don’t stick together and that you have a thickness of .85mm.
