A DAE file, short for Digital Asset Exchange, is a 3D model file format used in computer graphics and visualization applications. It stands as an abbreviation for "Collada" which means "gift" in Sanskrit. DAE files serve as an intermediate or interchange format for representing 3D models and their associated data, including geometry, textures, materials, animations, and more. The format was developed by the Khronos Group, an open industry consortium, to provide a standard way of exchanging 3D data between different software and hardware platforms.

One of the key advantages of DAE files is their compatibility and versatility. They can be utilized across various software applications, making it easier for artists, designers, and developers to collaborate and share 3D assets seamlessly. DAE files use XML (Extensible Markup Language) as the basis for their structure, making them human-readable and easy to parse by machines. This structure enables the storage of complex 3D scenes while maintaining a reasonable file size, making it suitable for use in real-time applications such as video games, augmented reality (AR), and virtual reality (VR) experiences.

In summary, a DAE file is a widely-used 3D model file format designed to facilitate the exchange of 3D assets across different software and hardware platforms. Its XML-based structure allows for efficient representation of complex 3D scenes while ensuring compatibility and easy readability. Whether it's for game development, architectural visualization, or other 3D graphics applications, DAE files play a significant role in enabling efficient asset sharing and collaboration in the digital content creation pipeline.
