X3D to OBJ Conversion

We offer a list of valuable resources, featuring comprehensive guides and expert advice for converting X3D files to OBJ format using our converters. Dive in now to make your X3D files conversion process smoother later.


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.

OBJ Alias Wavefront Object File

A text-based file format that is extensively used for 3D geometry objects across a variety of 3D software programs. Some of the benefits and features of OBJ files are:

  • Named Group Objects: OBJ files can store multiple objects with different names in a single file, which can be useful for organizing complex 3D scenes.
  • Surface Materials: The OBJ file format supports surface materials with transparent colors and texture images, providing more realistic and detailed 3D models.
  • Geometry Primitives: OBJ files can store geometry primitives in the form of quads or triangles. However, during the OBJ file conversion using our Autoconverter software, any quad primitives will be simplified into two triangles, as only triangular facets are supported.
  • OBJ File Size: Due to its textual format, OBJ files tend to have larger sizes compared to binary file formats like 3DS (3D Studio) or SKP (SketchUp). This means that OBJ files may take longer to load or transfer, and may require more storage space.
