The anser to this is rather complicated and depends a lot on which server you want to run your script on.

1.) Do you want to run a program on your own PC and then just control it with your own web browser by connecting for example to a url of the type
http://localhost:8000/mypythonscript 

2.) Do you have some web server, where you can upload files to?
If you want to run it on some existing web server.
What does this server provide

2.a) Is python installed on the server?
2.b) How does the server support python scripts?
    - via CGI?
    - via WSGI ?
    - via FastCGI?
   - via mod_python ?

I can try to give you some hints, but  the answer depends heavily on what you mean exactly with 'running on a web page'.

You could try migrating your script to web.py (http://webpy.org/). you'll end up running your own webserver, however and the leg work will be quite excessive.

In short, the answer is it's complicated. You need a webserver, probably with mod_python to get going.

It's definitely worth reading sedgwick's link It gives you a good idea about the different ways to run python 'in the web'

Afterwards as I wrote in my previous post it's up to you to identify your 'scenario'.

If you never wrote code for the web, then you'll notice, that coding for the web is very different to coding a stand alone program.
Web applications are request based and ('stateless'), so you had to to something like.

- display a web form, which allows you to upload your stl file
- then write the code, which can read the uploaded file and create the according text and render it as html.

Not very complicated but different to a standalone application.

Thinks you had to learn for this:
- creating web forms
- handling file uploads
- creating html output
