FBX Filmbox File

A proprietary file format that was originally created by Kaydara and is now owned by Autodesk, a leading company in 3D software products. Some of the benefits and features of FBX files are:

  • Transparent Colors and Texture Images: FBX files can store transparent colors and texture images, providing a rich and detailed visual experience.
  • Reusable Geometry Components: The FBX format allows for the storage of reusable geometry components, enhancing efficiency and consistency across models.
  • Assembly Structures: FBX supports the storage of assembly structures with hierarchical relationships between objects, enabling complex and detailed 3D modeling.
  • Model Animation Data: FBX can even store model animation data, although this feature is not currently supported by all software.

FBX File Converters: You can use our Autoconverter and Autoshaper software to easily process and convert your FBX files. They utilize the official FBX SDK from Autodesk that ensures compatibility and efficiency.


PLY Polygon File

A file format specifically designed to store three-dimensional triangles along with additional properties such as color, normals, transparency, or texture coordinates. PLY is also known as the Stanford Triangle Format, as it was developed at Stanford University in the early 1990s. PLY has many applications and benefits for 3D graphics, such as:

  • Rich and Customizable Data: PLY is a comprehensive and flexible format for 3D triangles, as it can store not only the geometric information of the triangles, but also the material and appearance information of the vertices and faces. PLY also allows for the definition of custom properties and elements, which can be used to store any additional data that is relevant to the 3D model.
  • Binary and ASCII Formats: 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 and faster loading speed. However, the ASCII version is more human-readable and easier to edit. Our PLY file converter can handle both formats and convert between them.

PLY Files Converter: Autoconverter allows you to convert your 3D models from various file formats, such as STL, SKP, OBJ, DAE, 3DS, STEP, and others, to PLY and vice versa.
