LWO LightWave 3D File

The native file format for the LightWave 3D modeling, animation, and rendering computer software. LightWave 3D is a powerful and comprehensive tool that allows you to create stunning 3D graphics and animations for various purposes, such as games, films, or visual effects. Here are some of the key features and benefits of LWO:

  • High-Quality and Realistic 3D Models: LWO is a professional and versatile format for 3D modeling and animation, as it can capture the details and complexity of 3D models and scenes. LWO can store various types of 3D meshes, such as polygons, subdivision surfaces, or metaballs. LWO can also store various types of material information, such as texture images, color, reflectivity, transparency, and more. These properties can enhance the appearance and realism of the 3D models and animations.
  • LWO File Converters: Autoconverter and Automesher Application allow for the seamless import of 3D mesh geometry, along with assigned material information, from LWO files. This enables you to convert any LWO object model into your preferred file format for further editing in your default 3D software. You can choose from various formats, such as PLY, STL, OBJ, SKP, CityJSON, and others.

STP STandardized Exchange of Product File

A file format used for the exchange of 3D data across various computer systems, including CAD, CAM, and CAE, in a standardized format. Some of the benefits and features of STEP files are:

  • Compatibility: STEP is widely supported by many software applications and platforms, making it easy to share and collaborate on 3D models across different domains and industries.
  • Accuracy: STEP preserves the exact shape and dimensions of 3D models, unlike some other mesh formats (SKP, OBJ, or STL) that may introduce errors or distortions during conversion.
  • STEP Files Converter: STEP files can be very large, especially when they contain complex or high-resolution 3D models. One way to reduce the file size is to use Autoconverter software, which can utilize the faceted BREP representation, potentially saving up to one-third of the file size.
  • Materials: STEP file format supports colors per assembly. However, it lacks an alpha component. This means that any transparency effects applied to 3D models will not be visible or preserved in the STEP files.
