TER Terragen Terrain File

A proprietary file format native to Terragen, a software used for creating natural terrain scenery. Terragen is a tool that allows you to generate realistic and detailed landscapes, mountains, valleys, rivers, and more. Here are some of the key features of TER:

  • Terrain Recognition: TER is a specialized and powerful format for natural terrain scenery, as it can capture the complexity and diversity of natural landscapes. TER is particularly useful in the terrain recognition industry, where it can be used to analyze, classify, and model terrain features and characteristics.
  • TER File Converters: Autoconverter and Automesher Application are capable of reading and importing TER terrain data, thanks to the open asset import library. This allows for the seamless conversion of terrains from TER files into various other 3D file formats, such as STL, OBJ, SKP, DAE, STEP, and more.

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.
