3DM to DAE Conversion

The following list contains valuable resources, packed with detailed guides and expert tips for converting 3DM files to DAE format using our converters. Look into them now to ease your 3DM files conversion later.


3DM Rhinoceros 3D File

The native file format for Rhinoceros 3D software. Used for various purposes like product design, architecture, and engineering. It has the following features:

  • Geometry Data Types: 3DM allows for the storage of a variety of 3D geometry data types, including smooth NURBS surfaces, triangular meshes, points, and curves. Each data type has its own advantages and applications in 3D modeling.
  • 3DM File Converters: Our software products allow you to import and export 3DM files, and convert them into various other file formats. Autoconverter can export only polygonal meshes, while Autoshaper can export NURBS shapes, which are more accurate and smooth.
  • Flexibility in File Versions: These invaluable 3DM file converters also offer the flexibility to save Rhino files in various 3DM file versions, ranging from Rhino 2.X to the most recent Rhino 8.X version. This feature enhances the versatility and applicability of 3DM in different software environments.

DAE Collada File

The primary file format that allows you to transfer digital assets such as materials, mesh geometries, and 3D scene nodes hierarchy between different 3D software applications. DAE has several advantages over other formats, such as:

  • Reusable Geometry Components: You can store and reuse geometry instances that are referenced by multiple objects in your DAE scene, saving memory and disk space.
  • Multiple Texture Images and Coordinates: You can assign different texture images and texture coordinates to each face of your DAE model, creating complex and realistic materials.
  • Color Transparency and Named Groups: You can control the opacity and color of your mesh, as well as organize your DAE objects into named groups for easy selection and manipulation.
  • Seamless DAE Conversion: You can use our Autoconverter and Autoshaper software to easily process and convert your DAE files. They utilize the OpenCOLLADA framework that supports the latest COLLADA specifications.
