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.

XYZ Point Cloud File

A file extension that is used for ASCII text files that contain point cloud data. Point cloud data is a collection of 3D points that represent the shape of an object or a scene. Each row in an XYZ file consists of 3D point coordinates, typically separated by a special character like a TAB. Here are some of the key features and benefits of XYZ:

  • Optional Normal Vectors: Optionally, the XYZ file may also include 3D normal vector coordinates for each point. Normal vectors are perpendicular to the surface of the object at each point, and they can be used to enhance the appearance and realism of the point cloud. Normal vectors also help with the reconstruction of surfaces from point cloud data.
  • Mesh Reconstruction: Autoconverter software can be used to automatically reconstruct meshes from point cloud data. Meshes are composed of polygons, such as triangles or quadrilaterals, that approximate the shape of the object.
  • Smooth NURBS Surfaces: Autoshaper software allows for the reconstruction of smooth NURBS surfaces from scattered points stored in the XYZ file. NURBS stands for Non-Uniform Rational B-Splines, and it is a mathematical method of representing curves and surfaces. NURBS surfaces provide a more accurate and smooth representation of the object than a mesh.
  • Alternative File Extensions: Point cloud data may also use alternative file extensions such as ASC or TXT. These file extensions are essentially the same as XYZ, except for the different characters used to separate the point coordinates. Our XYZ file converters can handle these file extensions as well.
