X3D Extensible 3D File

An open-source and royalty-free XML based format that was developed by the Web3D Consortium. X3D has many applications and benefits for the 3D graphics industry, especially in relation to web applications. Here are some of the key features and advantages of X3D:

  • VRML Replacement: X3D serves as an advanced extension and a replacement for the original VRML file format, which was primarily used in web applications. VRML stands for Virtual Reality Modeling Language, and it was a standard format for describing interactive 3D scenes on the web.
  • X3D File Converters: Autoconverter and Automesher Application seamlessly handle X3D file import and export, ensuring smooth data exchange and compatibility. This enables you to convert your 3D models from various formats, such as STL, OBJ, SKP, 3DS, STEP, and more, to X3D and vice versa.
  • X3DB File Format: For optimized file sizes, you have the option to use the binary X3DB file format instead of the default text-based X3D file. X3DB is a compressed version of X3D, which reduces the file size and improves the loading speed, an important factor for web applications.

DAE Collada File

The primary file format that allows you to transfer digital assets such as materials, mesh geometries, and 3D scene nodes hierarchy between different 3D software applications. DAE has several advantages over other formats, such as:

  • Reusable Geometry Components: You can store and reuse geometry instances that are referenced by multiple objects in your DAE scene, saving memory and disk space.
  • Multiple Texture Images and Coordinates: You can assign different texture images and texture coordinates to each face of your DAE model, creating complex and realistic materials.
  • Color Transparency and Named Groups: You can control the opacity and color of your mesh, as well as organize your DAE objects into named groups for easy selection and manipulation.
  • Seamless DAE Conversion: You can use our Autoconverter and Autoshaper software to easily process and convert your DAE files. They utilize the OpenCOLLADA framework that supports the latest COLLADA specifications.
