XYZ XYZ Point Cloud File

XYZ (Point cloud data) is a file extension used for ASCII text files with the point cloud data. Each row of XYZ file contains 3D point coordinates separated by a special character, usually a TAB and optionally 3D normal vector coordinates for that point. The normal vectors for the points are optional as it is possible to generate them on the fly based on the point cloud structure. Autoconverter is our XYZ file converter which allows you to automatically reconstruct the mesh surface from the point cloud data. Autoshaper is another XYZ file converter which allows you to reconstruct a smooth NURBS surface from scattered points stored in the XYZ file. The alternative file extension for point cloud data can be either ASC or TXT.


U3D U3D File

U3D (Universal 3D) is an open source compressed file format initiated by the 3D Industry Forum to store three dimensional triangular meshes with the additional properties e.g. color, transparency or texture coordinates for the general 3D graphics industry. The U3D file format is mostly used in combination with the 3D PDF technology which allows you to generate PDF documents containing interactive 3D data from the U3D files. Autoconverter and Automesher Application, our U3D file converters can read and write to and from U3D file format thanks to the publicly available open source IFX converter library provided by the Intel company. To simplify generation of 3D PDF documents our converters create a common TEX script which can be easily used to generate a PDF document with the standard and free LaTeX software.
