|Full Name||3D Manufacturing Format|
A 3MF file, short for 3D Manufacturing Format, is a modern and versatile file format specifically designed for 3D printing applications. It serves as a container for storing 3D models along with all relevant information necessary for the additive manufacturing process. Developed by the 3MF Consortium, this file format aims to address the limitations and complexities of traditional file formats like STL. The 3MF file format enables more efficient and accurate representation of 3D models, ensuring better interoperability among different 3D software and hardware, ultimately enhancing the overall 3D printing workflow.
Unlike STL files, which only describe the surface geometry of a 3D model using triangles, 3MF files can store more comprehensive data. This includes not only the geometry but also color, materials, textures, multiple components, and even slicing information. As a result, 3MF files offer a more complete representation of the 3D model, enabling precise visualization and fabrication without the need for additional external data. This integration of metadata within the 3MF file simplifies the 3D printing process, reduces the likelihood of errors, and promotes consistency across various 3D printing platforms.
Moreover, the 3MF file format is continually evolving, with updates and improvements being developed by the 3MF Consortium and its contributing members. This ensures that the format remains relevant and adaptable to emerging technologies and requirements within the additive manufacturing industry. As 3D printing continues to gain traction in various fields, from manufacturing to healthcare, the adoption of the 3MF file format is expected to grow, offering a streamlined and standardized approach to 3D model exchange and facilitating the widespread use of 3D printing technologies.
3MF Converter Capabilities
When converting 3D Model/Mesh files using our 3MF converter we will attempt to convert color materials into a suitable format for use in the converted file.

An OBJ file is a widely used file format in 3D computer graphics that serves as a standard representation for 3D models. It stands for "Object" and was originally developed by Wavefront Technologies. OBJ files store geometric data, such as vertex positions, normals, texture coordinates, and face information, describing the surface of a 3D object. This data is presented in plain text, making OBJ files human-readable and easy to exchange between various 3D modeling and rendering software.
The structure of an OBJ file is based on vertices (points in 3D space), which form the building blocks of the 3D model's shape. These vertices are organized into faces, typically triangles or quads, representing the surfaces of the object. Alongside the geometric data, OBJ files can also include material information, enabling the application of textures and shaders to the 3D model, providing it with color, reflectivity, and other visual properties.
Due to its simplicity and compatibility across different software platforms, the OBJ file format has become a popular choice for sharing 3D models. However, being a relatively basic format, OBJ files may not support complex features found in more advanced formats like animation data or high-level shader definitions. Despite this limitation, OBJ remains a widely adopted format in various industries, including gaming, animation, virtual reality, and 3D printing.
Your 3MF file will be converted to a OBJ file using our unified 3D model and mesh conversion tool. Our 3MF 3D tool performs accurate conversions of 3D elements such as vertices, faces, normals and relevant material information. As 3MF supports color materials and OBJ does not, our tool will not attempt to transfer any color information, your final 3D model will contain geometry data only.
First click the "Upload..." button, select your 3MF file to upload. Your 3MF file will be uploaded to our servers. When the 3MF to OBJ conversion has completed, you can download your OBJ file straight away.
We aim to process all 3MF to OBJ conversions as quickly as possible, this usually takes around 5 seconds however this can be longer for certain files, so please be patient.
We aim to provide the best conversion experience. Our tools are under constant review and development with new features being added every week.
