ZWCAD to PLY Conversion

The list below contains valuable resources, complete with step-by-step guides and expert advice for converting ZWCAD drawings to PLY format using our converters. Delve into them now to simplify your ZWCAD drawings conversion later.


DWG ZWCAD Drawing

ZWSOFT's ZWCAD is a professional and cost-effective CAD platform that offers many features and benefits for designers, engineers, and architects. Here are some of the reasons why you should choose ZWCAD over other CAD products:

  • Compatibility with AutoCAD: ZWCAD is fully compatible with the latest DWG file format, which means you can open, edit, and save files created by AutoCAD without any loss of data or quality. You can also use the same commands, aliases, menus, toolbars, and shortcuts as AutoCAD, making the transition to ZWCAD easy and smooth.
  • Support for 3D and GIS Formats: ZWCAD supports a wide range of 3D and GIS formats, thanks to our Automesher Application and Automapki Application plugins. These plugins enhance your ZWCAD functionality to import and export files from formats such as STL, OBJ, SKP, FBX, STEP, SHP, KML, and more.
  • Customization with ObjectZRX: ZWCAD is highly customizable, thanks to the ObjectZRX technology from ZWSOFT. ObjectZRX is an object-oriented programming interface in C++ that allowed us to develop our plugins for you.

PLY Polygon File

A file format specifically designed to store three-dimensional triangles along with additional properties such as color, normals, transparency, or texture coordinates. PLY is also known as the Stanford Triangle Format, as it was developed at Stanford University in the early 1990s. PLY has many applications and benefits for 3D graphics, such as:

  • Rich and Customizable Data: PLY is a comprehensive and flexible format for 3D triangles, as it can store not only the geometric information of the triangles, but also the material and appearance information of the vertices and faces. PLY also allows for the definition of custom properties and elements, which can be used to store any additional data that is relevant to the 3D model.
  • PLY File Converter: Autoconverter allows you to convert your 3D models from various file formats, such as STL, SKP, OBJ, DAE, 3DS, STEP, and others, to PLY and vice versa.
  • Binary and ASCII Formats: It’s worth noting that PLY files can be saved in either binary or ASCII text formats. The binary version is generally preferred due to its significant reduction in file size and faster loading speed. However, the ASCII version is more human-readable and easier to edit. Our PLY file converter can handle both formats and convert between them.
