Conversion of stl files to dwg file format

Almost every 3D modeling / CAD tool supports STL format nowadays, so stl to dwg conversion should be doable in pretty much anything. It's basically recovery of 3D models exported for the purpose of 3D print back to DWG format. STL format does not contain objects, so it's just conversion of geometry data. However, some programs only generate 2D view of the 3D model, perhaps from its slice or from sides. This means that not every program might be sufficient for your needs.
