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.

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.
