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 File 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.


3DM Rhinoceros 3D File

The native file format for Rhinoceros 3D software. Used for various purposes like product design, architecture, and engineering. It has the following features:

  • Geometry Data Types: 3DM allows for the storage of a variety of 3D geometry data types, including smooth NURBS surfaces, triangular meshes, points, and curves. Each data type has its own advantages and applications in 3D modeling.
  • 3DM File Converters: Our software products allow you to import and export 3DM files, and convert them into various other file formats. Autoconverter can export only polygonal meshes, while Autoshaper can export NURBS shapes, which are more accurate and smooth.
  • Flexibility in File Versions: These invaluable 3DM file converters also offer the flexibility to save Rhino files in various 3DM file versions, ranging from Rhino 2.X to the most recent Rhino 8.X version. This feature enhances the versatility and applicability of 3DM in different software environments.
