Convert 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 file in a binary or ASCII text file format, with the preference for the binary version due to a significant PLY file size saving.

3DS 3DS File

3DS (3D Studio) file extension is a famous file format for storing polygonal mesh models with the additional support for the model names, materials with transparent colors and texture images. For the legacy reasons the maximum length of 3DS model name is 8 characters, and the maximum number of triangles in a single 3DS mesh object is 32.767, therefore during 3DS export process any bigger mesh will be divided into smaller shells. Using our Autoconverter or Autoshaper 3DS file converters you can convert any 3D model into 3DS file format and import it into common DIALux lighting project.
