Convert 3MF to KMZ: The Key References

3MF to KMZ: Resources

The following resources are provided for your reference, focusing on the interoperability and exchange between 3MF and KMZ file formats. They are designed to assist you in the transition from 3MF to KMZ files.

3MF File 3MF

The 3MF (3D Manufacturing Format) is an open-source XML file format developed by the 3MF Consortium. It’s specifically designed to store three-dimensional triangles, along with additional properties such as color, transparency, or texture coordinates, catering to the needs of the 3D printing industry. The 3MF file format is considered a modern alternative to the legacy STL format for 3D printing. Our Autoconverter software and Automesher Application are capable of reading from and writing to the 3MF files, leveraging the open-source lib3mf library provided by the 3MF Consortium. However, please be aware that group hierarchies are not supported for 3MF files.

KMZ Google Earth Placemark KMZ

The KMZ (Google Earth Placemark) file format, designed for use with Google Earth and Google Earth Pro, offers an optimized method for storing geographical data, including point, line string, and polygon geometries. This efficiency is achieved through the use of ZIP file compression, which distinguishes it from the standard KML file format. Our Automapki Application, compatible with AutoCAD, BricsCAD, and ZWCAD, allows for the import of KMZ maps into the DWG model space, accurately recreating every point, line string, polygon, and Collada DAE model geometry from the compressed KMZ file. In addition, our Automapki Application provides the ability to export your point, polygon, curve, and image DWG drawing entities to the compressed KMZ file format.
