OBJ to FBX Conversion

Here is a list of valuable resources, complete with step-by-step instructions and expert advice for converting OBJ files to FBX format using our converters. Check them out now to expedite your OBJ files conversion later.


OBJ Alias Wavefront Object File

A text-based file format that is extensively used for 3D geometry objects across a variety of 3D software programs. Some of the benefits and features of OBJ files are:

  • Named Group Objects: OBJ files can store multiple objects with different names in a single file, which can be useful for organizing complex 3D scenes.
  • Surface Materials: The OBJ file format supports surface materials with transparent colors and texture images, providing more realistic and detailed 3D models.
  • Geometry Primitives: OBJ files can store geometry primitives in the form of quads or triangles. However, during the OBJ file conversion using our Autoconverter software, any quad primitives will be simplified into two triangles, as only triangular facets are supported.
  • OBJ File Size: Due to its textual format, OBJ files tend to have larger sizes compared to binary file formats like 3DS (3D Studio) or SKP (SketchUp). This means that OBJ files may take longer to load or transfer, and may require more storage space.

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.
