COB Caligari TrueSpace Object File

A file format for storing 3D objects that was created by the Caligari Corporation. It is used by their software, TrueSpace, which is a 3D modeling and animation program. Here are some of the key features and benefits of COB:

  • COB File Formats: There are two types of COB files:
    • ASCII: COB files are human-readable and can be edited with just a text editor.
    • Binary: COB files are machine-readable only but they are more compact and efficient.
  • COB File Import: Autoconverter and Automesher Application can import COB files and convert them to other 3D formats, such as STEP, SAT, FBX, SKP, OBJ, and others. We use the open asset import library, which is a cross-platform library that supports many 3D file formats. By using this library, we can preserve the original features of the COB file, such as the materials, textures, UV coordinates, and other properties.

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.
