XYZ Point Cloud File

A file extension that is used for ASCII text files that contain point cloud data. Point cloud data is a collection of 3D points that represent the shape of an object or a scene. Each row in an XYZ file consists of 3D point coordinates, typically separated by a special character like a TAB. Here are some of the key features and benefits of XYZ:

  • Optional Normal Vectors: Optionally, the XYZ file may also include 3D normal vector coordinates for each point. Normal vectors are perpendicular to the surface of the object at each point, and they can be used to enhance the appearance and realism of the point cloud. Normal vectors also help with the reconstruction of surfaces from point cloud data.
  • Mesh Reconstruction: Autoconverter software can be used to automatically reconstruct meshes from point cloud data. Meshes are composed of polygons, such as triangles or quadrilaterals, that approximate the shape of the object.
  • Smooth NURBS Surfaces: Autoshaper software allows for the reconstruction of smooth NURBS surfaces from scattered points stored in the XYZ file. NURBS stands for Non-Uniform Rational B-Splines, and it is a mathematical method of representing curves and surfaces. NURBS surfaces provide a more accurate and smooth representation of the object than a mesh.
  • Alternative File Extensions: Point cloud data may also use alternative file extensions such as ASC or TXT. These file extensions are essentially the same as XYZ, except for the different characters used to separate the point coordinates. Our XYZ file converters can handle these file extensions as well.

X Direct3D File

The original interchange format for DirectX technology, developed by Microsoft in 1995 alongside the release of Windows 95. DirectX is a collection of APIs that enable high-performance graphics and multimedia applications. The X file format can store mesh geometry along with material information, such as texture images. Here are some of the key features and benefits of X:

  • Compatibility with DirectX: X is fully compatible with DirectX technology, which means you can use X files to create and render 3D models and scenes with DirectX APIs. You can also use X files to exchange data between different DirectX applications, such as games, simulations, or animations.
  • X File Converters: Autoconverter and Automesher Application software allow you to effortlessly convert X files into your native 3D modeling environment. You can choose from various formats, such as STL, OBJ, 3DM, SKP, STEP, and others.
  • Reverse Conversion: Additionally, our X file converters support reverse conversion, enabling you to convert your native files into the X file format. This allows you to use your 3D models in DirectX applications, or to share them with other users who use DirectX technology.
