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.

PLY Polygon File

A file format specifically designed to store three-dimensional triangles along with additional properties such as color, normals, transparency, or texture coordinates. PLY is also known as the Stanford Triangle Format, as it was developed at Stanford University in the early 1990s. PLY has many applications and benefits for 3D graphics, such as:

  • Rich and Customizable Data: PLY is a comprehensive and flexible format for 3D triangles, as it can store not only the geometric information of the triangles, but also the material and appearance information of the vertices and faces. PLY also allows for the definition of custom properties and elements, which can be used to store any additional data that is relevant to the 3D model.
  • Binary and ASCII Formats: It’s worth noting that PLY files can be saved in either binary or ASCII text formats. The binary version is generally preferred due to its significant reduction in file size and faster loading speed. However, the ASCII version is more human-readable and easier to edit. Our PLY file converter can handle both formats and convert between them.

PLY Files Converter: Autoconverter allows you to convert your 3D models from various file formats, such as STL, SKP, OBJ, DAE, 3DS, STEP, and others, to PLY and vice versa.
