Convert 3MF file

3MF to PLY .....

Please find below the list of our other useful resources related to 3MF and PLY interoperability and exchange that could possibly help you with the 3MF to PLY conversion.


3MF 3MF File

3MF (3D Manufacturing Format) is an open source XML file format developed by the 3MF Consortium to store three dimensional triangles with additional properties e.g. color, transparency or texture coordinates for the 3D printing industry. The 3MF file format becomes a modern replacement for the original STL 3D printing file format. Autoconverter or Automesher Application our 3MF file converters can read and write to and from 3MF file format thanks to the open source lib3mf library provided by the 3MF Consortium. However currently we do not support groups hierarchy for 3MF files.


PLY PLY File

PLY (Polygon File Format or Stanford Triangle Format) is a file format developed to store three dimensional triangles with additional properties e.g. color, normals, transparency or texture coordinates. However, Autoconverter our PLY file converter can only read and write mesh geometry without the material properties, as in the PLY file they can vary between triangle vertices. You can save PLY files in a binary or ASCII text file format, with the preference for the binary version due to a significant PLY file size saving.
