File format information for BMP and OBJ

ExtensionBMP
Full NameBitmap Image File
TypeImage
Mime Typeimage/bmp
FormatBinary
Opens WithPaint.Net

The BMP file format is a two dimensional image file format popular on Microsoft Windows operating systems. Data is stored in the BMP file in a raster format with pixels being represented using various colour depths ranging from monocrome 1-bit per pixel (bpp) to full color 24-bits per pixel.

The format can also contain an image alpha channel which is typically 8 bits per pixel in size and is used to describe image transparency. BMP files can also optionally be compressed using a lossless compression algorithm meaning smaller files with no loss of image quality.

ExtensionOBJ
Full NameWavefront
Type3D Model
Mime Typetext/plain

The OBJ file format originally created by Wavefront Technologies and later adopted by many other 3D software vendors is a simple text-based file format for describing 3D model/geometry. This data can include Vertices, Faces, Normals, Texture Coordinates and references to external Texture files.

As the format is text-based it is relatively straight-forward to parse by 3D modelling applications. A downside of the text-based format is the files can be rather large compared to similar binary formats such as STL and compressed files such as 3MF.

Information for converting from BMP to OBJ

Our BMP converter will convert your BMP file to a 3D model using the Heightmap process whereby 2D pixels, based on their luminosity, are converted into 3D space to create a full 3D OBJ model ready for download for further processing in your favourite 3D editing package or for printing on a 3D printer.

Frequently Asked Questions

How can I convert my BMP file to OBJ?

First click the "Upload..." button, select your BMP file to upload. Your BMP file will be uploaded to our servers. When the BMP to OBJ conversion has completed, you can download your OBJ file straight away.

How long does it take to convert my BMP to OBJ?

We aim to process all BMP 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.

How accurate is the BMP to OBJ conversion?

We aim to provide the best conversion experience. Our tools are under constant review and development with new features being added every week.

How is the 3D model generated from my BMP image?

Our tool uses a Heightmap process whereby the OBJ 3D model is created based on the luminosity of the individual pixels in you BMP image.

Is there a limit to the size of my image?

Yes, to ensure our tool converts the BMP image quickly and with a reasonable final file size, your tool will resize any image larger than 600x600 pixels.
