AMF AMF File

AMF (Additive Manufacturing) file format is a new standard for the 3D printing additive manufacturing technology to represent a 3D design for the fabrication process on a 3D printer machine. In comparison to the STL file format common in the 3D printing industry, the AMF file format can offer a native support for the color, materials and material texture images. Moreover the AMF file content can be compressed with the ZIP compression algorithm reducing the AMF file size significantly. The import and conversion of the AMF files is fully supported by our Autoconverter and Automesher Application file conversion utilities.


U3D U3D File

U3D (Universal 3D) is an open source compressed file format initiated by the 3D Industry Forum to store three dimensional triangular meshes with the additional properties e.g. color, transparency or texture coordinates for the general 3D graphics industry. The U3D file format is mostly used in combination with the 3D PDF technology which allows you to generate PDF documents containing interactive 3D data from the U3D files. Autoconverter and Automesher Application, our U3D file converters can read and write to and from U3D file format thanks to the publicly available open source IFX converter library provided by the Intel company. To simplify generation of 3D PDF documents our converters create a common TEX script which can be easily used to generate a PDF document with the standard and free LaTeX software.
