Convert DXF to PLY File

DXF to PLY ......

Refer to the following resources for additional support on the interoperability and exchange of DXF and PLY file formats. They will assist you in transitioning from DXF to PLY file.

DXF Drawing DXF

DXF (Drawing Exchange Format) is an ASCII file format developed and maintained by Autodesk. It serves as a conduit for exchanging DWG drawing data between AutoCAD and other programs. This is particularly beneficial as the native DWG file format is proprietary and requires a license to use. With our software, Autoconverter and Automesher Application, you can convert 3D meshes into a set of DXF faces organized in colored layers. This enables further processing and modifications using your default DWG editor.


The PLY (Polygon File Format or Stanford Triangle Format), is a file format specifically designed to store three-dimensional triangles along with additional properties such as color, normals, transparency, or texture coordinates. Our Autoconverter software, a dedicated PLY file converter, primarily focuses on reading and writing mesh geometry, without considering material properties, which can vary between face vertices in PLY files. 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.
