AMF to OBJ Conversion

We’ve gathered a list of valuable resources, featuring comprehensive guides and expert advice for converting AMF files to OBJ format using our converters. Study them now to make your AMF files conversion easier later.


AMF Additive Manufacturing File

A file format that is used for 3D printing and additive manufacturing. It is a new standard that aims to improve the quality and efficiency of the 3D printing process. Here are some of the key features and benefits of AMF:

  • AMF File Features: One of the main features of the AMF file format is that it supports color, materials, and texture images. This means that the 3D printed object can have more realistic and detailed appearance. Another feature of the AMF file format is that it allows the reuse of geometry component instances. This means that the same part of the 3D design can be replicated multiple times, without increasing the file size. This can save time and resources in the 3D printing process.
  • AMF File Compression: Another advantage of the AMF file format is that it can be compressed using the ZIP compression algorithm. This can reduce the file size significantly, making it easier to transfer and store. The compression does not affect the quality or accuracy of the 3D design, as the AMF file format preserves the original data.
  • AMF File Converters: Autoconverter and Automesher Application can only import and convert AMF files to other 3D formats, such as 3MF, STL, SKP, OBJ, DAE, and many others. We use the open asset import library, which is a cross-platform library that supports many 3D file formats. By using this library, we can ensure the compatibility and functionality of the AMF files.

OBJ Alias Wavefront Object File

A text-based file format that is extensively used for 3D geometry objects across a variety of 3D software programs. Some of the benefits and features of OBJ files are:

  • Named Group Objects: OBJ files can store multiple objects with different names in a single file, which can be useful for organizing complex 3D scenes.
  • Surface Materials: The OBJ file format supports surface materials with transparent colors and texture images, providing more realistic and detailed 3D models.
  • Geometry Primitives: OBJ files can store geometry primitives in the form of quads or triangles. However, during the OBJ file conversion using our Autoconverter software, any quad primitives will be simplified into two triangles, as only triangular facets are supported.
  • OBJ File Size: Due to its textual format, OBJ files tend to have larger sizes compared to binary file formats like 3DS (3D Studio) or SKP (SketchUp). This means that OBJ files may take longer to load or transfer, and may require more storage space.
