Convert COB file

COB COB File

COB (Caligari TrueSpace Object) is a 3D object file format developed by Caligari Corporation. The COB file can be encoded in ASCII and binary formats and in general binary files should be used as they are smaller and faster for programs to process. Our Autoconverter and Automesher Application COB file converters, can read and import COB files thanks to the open asset import library. It allows us to support custom materials, textures, UV coordinates and other common 3D object properties.


U3D U3D File

U3D (Universal 3D) is an open source compressed file format initiated by the 3D Industry Forum to store three dimensional triangular meshes with the additional properties e.g. color, transparency or texture coordinates for the general 3D graphics industry. The U3D file format is mostly used in combination with the 3D PDF technology which allows you to generate PDF documents containing interactive 3D data from the U3D files. Autoconverter and Automesher Application, our U3D file converters can read and write to and from U3D file format thanks to the publicly available open source IFX converter library provided by the Intel company. To simplify generation of 3D PDF documents our converters create a common TEX script which can be easily used to generate a PDF document with the standard and free LaTeX software.
