There is no built-in functionality or tools provided by the DXSDK to load STL files. You have three choices:

  1. Look for a plug-in for your chosen tool that will export directly to .X
  2. Find a 3rd party stand-alone tool that will accept STL and emit X format. Several file conversion tools exist online.
  3. Find a 3rd party library (or write your own) that will load STL data directly into your application.


Best of luck!
