Convert AMF to U3D File

AMF to U3D ......

Below, you'll discover a compendium of resources dedicated to the interoperability and exchange of AMF and U3D file formats. These will aid in the smooth conversion from AMF to U3D file.


The AMF (Additive Manufacturing) file format has emerged as a new standard in the 3D printing and additive manufacturing industry. It is designed to facilitate the transfer of a 3D design for the fabrication process on a 3D printer machine. Unlike the STL file format, which is common in the 3D printing industry, AMF offers native support for color, materials, texture images, and reusable geometry component instances. An added advantage of the AMF file format is that its content can be compressed using the ZIP compression algorithm, resulting in a significant reduction in file size. Our Autoconverter software and Automesher Application offer full support for the import and conversion of AMF files.

U3D File U3D

The U3D (Universal 3D) file format is an open-source compressed format, initiated by the 3D Industry Forum. It’s designed to store three-dimensional triangular meshes along with additional properties such as color, transparency, or texture coordinates. This format plays a significant role in the general 3D graphics industry, particularly in conjunction with 3D PDF technology. It enables the generation of PDF documents containing interactive 3D data from U3D files. Both of our U3D file converters, Autoconverter and Automesher Application, are capable of reading and writing to and from the U3D file format. This is made possible thanks to the publicly available open-source IFX conversion library provided by Intel. To streamline the process of generating 3D PDF documents, our converters create a standard TEX script that can be easily utilized with free LaTeX software.
