OFF Object File Format

A simple and flexible file format for 3D polygonal objects. It is a versatile tool for storing and transferring 3D geometric data. It has the following features:

  • ASCII Text Files: : The OFF files are text-based and use a simple syntax to store geometric data of 3D objects. The files can be easily edited and viewed with any text editor or viewer.
  • Polygonal Shapes: The OFF files can store 3D triangles, quads, and other generic polygonal shapes. Each shape is defined by a list of vertices and a list of faces.
  • Limitations: The OFF files do not support the conversion of materials, textures, or group names from more sophisticated 3D file formats. These attributes are not stored in the OFF files and are lost during the conversion process.

OFF File Converters: Autoconverter is our primary OFF file converter that can convert OFF files into other mesh file formats, such as STL, SKP, OBJ, PLY, etc. Autoshaper is another OFF file converter that can convert OFF files into smooth NURBS shapes, and save them into BREP, STEP, IGES, etc.


U3D Universal 3D File

An open-source compressed file format that was initiated by the 3D Industry Forum. U3D is designed to store three-dimensional triangular meshes along with additional properties such as color, transparency, or texture coordinates. Here are some of the key features and advantages of U3D:

  • 3D PDF Integration: U3D enables the generation of PDF documents that contain interactive 3D data. This means that you can view, rotate, zoom, and manipulate 3D models within a PDF document. 3D PDF is a widely used and supported format that can be easily shared and distributed.
  • U3D File Converters: Autoconverter and Automesher Application are capable of reading and writing to and from the U3D file format. This allows you to convert your 3D models from various formats, such as STL, OBJ, SKP, DAE, STEP, and others, to U3D and vice versa.
  • IFX Conversion Library: Our U3D file converters use the publicly available open-source IFX conversion library provided by Intel. This library is a powerful and reliable tool that enables the conversion of 3D data to and from U3D.
