RAW POV-Ray Triangles File

A simple ASCII file format that solely stores a list of triangle vertices without any additional material or topological data. Triangle meshes are a common way of representing 3D models and shapes, using a collection of triangles to approximate the surface of the object. Here are some of the key features and benefits of RAW:

  • Simplicity and Speed: RAW is a minimal and efficient format for triangle meshes, as it only contains the essential information needed to define the shape of the object. This means that RAW files are easy to create, read, and process, without any unnecessary overhead or complexity. RAW files are also small in size, which makes them suitable for fast transmission and storage.
  • RAW File Converters: Automesher Application and Autoconverter software can read and import RAW files, thanks to the open asset import library. This allows you to convert your triangle RAW files to other file formats, such as STL, OBJ, DAE, SKP, STEP, and more.
  • Limitations and Future Support: However, the functionality to save and export to this simple triangle RAW file format is currently not supported. This means that you cannot use our RAW file converters to export RAW files from other formats. If you require this feature, please consider submitting a support request. We are always working to improve our software and add new features and functionalities.

3DM Rhinoceros 3D File

The native file format for Rhinoceros 3D software. Used for various purposes like product design, architecture, and engineering. It has the following features:

  • Geometry Data Types: 3DM allows for the storage of a variety of 3D geometry data types, including smooth NURBS surfaces, triangular meshes, points, and curves. Each data type has its own advantages and applications in 3D modeling.
  • 3DM File Converters: Our software products allow you to import and export 3DM files, and convert them into various other file formats. Autoconverter can export only polygonal meshes, while Autoshaper can export NURBS shapes, which are more accurate and smooth.
  • Flexibility in File Versions: These invaluable 3DM file converters also offer the flexibility to save Rhino files in various 3DM file versions, ranging from Rhino 2.X to the most recent Rhino 8.X version. This feature enhances the versatility and applicability of 3DM in different software environments.
