Convert OBJ file

OBJ OBJ File

OBJ (Alias Wavefront Object) is a text based file format for 3D geometry objects which is very popular and widely supported by many 3D software programs. OBJ file format is capable of storing named group objects, surface materials with transparent colors or texture images, and quads or triangles as geometry primitives. However our Autoconverter software will simplify every OBJ quad primitive with two triangles as only triangular facets are supported during the file conversion. It's important to mention that due to a textual format OBJ files will always be significantly bigger than the binary files e.g. 3DS (3D Studio) or SKP (SketchUp).


PLY PLY File

PLY (Polygon File Format or Stanford Triangle Format) is a file format developed to store three dimensional triangles with additional properties e.g. color, normals, transparency or texture coordinates. However, Autoconverter our PLY file converter can only read and write mesh geometry without the material properties, as in the PLY file they can vary between triangle vertices. You can save PLY files in a binary or ASCII text file format, with the preference for the binary version due to a significant PLY file size saving.
