BMP Windows Bitmap Image

This file format is a type of image file designed for storing digital images on Windows systems. It's known for its simple structure, universal compatibility, and ability to maintain pixel-perfect accuracy, but also for its lack of compression and advanced features. Here's a breakdown of its key characteristics:

  • Uncompressed Accuracy: BMP files preserve every pixel which make them ideal for medical imaging, scientific data visualization, and applications requiring pixel-level precision.
  • Simple Structure: Straightforward structure makes BMP files readily editable in basic image editing programs. Longstanding format ensures compatibility with a vast range of computer software and systems.
  • Large File Sizes: Uncompressed nature leads to bigger BMP files, impacting storage efficiency and potentially slowing down web loading.

BMP to 3D Converters: You can use our Autoconverter and Automesher Application tools to convert BMP bitmap images into different 3D formats, such as STL, 3DS, OBJ, 3DM, and many others. These converters are compatible with other common image formats as well.

GLB Graphics Language Transmission File

A file format developed and maintained by the Khronos Group organization. It is designed to facilitate the efficient storage and exchange of 3D models. It has the following features:

  • Khronos Group: Khronos Group is a consortium of industry leaders that creates open standards for graphics, media, and parallel computing. This organization developed the GLTF file format.
  • GLTF Versions: There are two versions of the GLTF file format that are available:
    • GLTF 1.0: Supports basic geometry, simple materials with textures, basic skeletal animations with joint hierarchies, scenes with a single root node and a hierarchy of child nodes, etc.
    • GLTF 2.0: Supports more features, such as PBR (Physically Based Rendering) materials, Draco compression, advanced skeletal animations, skinning, morph targets, etc.
  • ASCII and Binary Modes: By default, a GLTF file is saved in ASCII text mode, which is human-readable and easy to edit. To save a GLTF file with all referenced texture images in binary mode, the GLB file extension should be used. This reduces the file size and the number of files.
  • GLTF Converters: Autoconverter and Automesher Application allow you to import and export GLTF and GLB files, and convert them into various other 3D file formats. Our products also support the use of Draco compression, which can significantly reduce the size of GLTF and GLB files without compromising visual fidelity.
