Convert PLY file

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


IGS IGES File

IGES (Initial Graphics Exchange Specification) is the initial file format for the data exchange between different systems e.g. CAD, CAM or CAE. As the geometry data are stored in a text file format, you will get bigger file sizes when exporting triangular meshes with thousands of faces using Autoconverter software. The IGES file format supports color per assembly, but without the alpha component, therefore any transparency setting will be lost in the IGES file.
