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. The OBJ file format is capable of storing named group objects, surface materials with transparent colors and 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 OBJ file conversion. It's important to mention that due to a textual format OBJ files will always be much bigger than the binary files, e.g. 3DS (3D Studio) or SKP (SketchUp).


STL STL File

STL (STereoLithography) is a file format developed by 3D Systems company, the world leader in the 3D printing industry. STL files contain triangular mesh only, without face color, texture, transparency and named groups data. While it is possible to assign RGB color value for each individual vertex, Autoconverter our STL file converter doesn't support this STL file extension. You can save STL files in binary or ASCII text file format, with the preference for the former one due to significant STL file size reduction. The triangles in STL files are always defined in millimeters therefore our STL converters will make the necessary unit conversion if required.
