BLEND Blender File

The native file format for the open-source Blender software, is designed to store and transfer sophisticated 3D content. It is a comprehensive solution for creating impressive 3D visualizations and animations. It has the following features:

  • 3D Data Storage: The data that define the 3D objects and scenes in a BLEND file. This includes 3D triangular mesh data, light sources, object animation keyframes, texture UV mapping, and other parameters that control the appearance and behavior of the 3D content.
  • BLEND Import: Our Autoconverter and Automesher Application converters enable you to easily import and convert BLEND files into your preferred modeling environment, such as AutoCAD, BricsCAD, or ZWCAD. This allows you to work with BLEND files outside of the Blender software.
  • BLEND Export: Please note that while our software supports the import and conversion of BLEND files, we currently do not support exporting 3D models to the BLEND file format for further processing in Blender. This is an important consideration when planning your 3D modeling workflow.

OFF Object File Format

A simple and flexible file format for 3D polygonal objects. It is a versatile tool for storing and transferring 3D geometric data. It has the following features:

  • ASCII Text Files: : The OFF files are text-based and use a simple syntax to store geometric data of 3D objects. The files can be easily edited and viewed with any text editor or viewer.
  • Polygonal Shapes: The OFF files can store 3D triangles, quads, and other generic polygonal shapes. Each shape is defined by a list of vertices and a list of faces.
  • OFF Converters: Autoconverter is our primary OFF file converter that can convert OFF files into other mesh file formats, such as STL, SKP, OBJ, PLY, etc. Autoshaper is another OFF file converter that can convert OFF files into smooth NURBS shapes, and save them into BREP, STEP, IGES, etc.
  • Limitations: The OFF files do not support the conversion of materials, textures, or group names from more sophisticated 3D file formats. These attributes are not stored in the OFF files and are lost during the conversion process.
