Free Online IFC to OBJ Converter

You can use our IFC to OBJ conversion tool to quickly and easily convert your 3D model files for free. You may upload up to 20 files at one time, and our batch IFC to OBJ converter will process each 3D model and present you with a download link for each file once completed.

Or drag and drop your files here to upload.
A maximum of 20 files can be uploaded at once.

Please note: Your IFC file, once uploaded to our server, will be deleted 15 minutes after upload, so please download your converted IFC file before this time.

Our 3D model IFC to OBJ tool will load your IFC file and, where supported, attempt to extract all the relevant 3D features, such as geometry, textures, and animations. To access the 3D conversion configuration options, click the button when you have selected your files. The current options support the ability to voxelize your 3D model and more.

An IFC file is a 3D document file designed to store detailed data about 3D objects and is particularly popular in the construction, architecture, and engineering industries.

Standing for Industry Foundation Classes, the IFC format is designed as a standard format with the purpose of easy data exchange between 3D graphics and CAD applications with no loss of detail.

IFC files can be opened with many 3D and CAD applications, and our own IFC file converters can convert your IFC file to other, compatible formats.

IFC Converter Capabilities

When converting 3D model or mesh files using our IFC converter, we will attempt to convert color materials into a suitable format for use in the converted file.

The OBJ file format is a 3D graphics file format used to define complex 3D models, including geometry, materials, and textures. OBJ files are text files, making them human-readable and easy to modify by hand. The downside to this ease of readability is that the files can become rather large when dealing with large or complex 3D models.

As mentioned, the OBJ format stores not only 3D model geometry but also materials and textures. These materials are usually defined in a separate file with the MTL file extension and specify geometry rendering details such as diffuse and specular color, transparency, and much more.

The OBJ material file can also reference external texture files. These are usually JPEG or PNG files; however, these can be older formats, such as TGA. Where materials are used, the OBJ file will also contain material names preceding the geometry faces they should be applied to. If textures are referenced, the geometry will also contain texture coordinates (UV) for each vertex.

When converting your IFC to OBJ, our tool will attempt to accurately convert any color or material information.

Information for converting from IFC to OBJ

Your IFC file will be converted to a OBJ file using our unified 3D model and mesh conversion tool. Our IFC 3D tool performs accurate conversions of 3D elements such as vertices, faces, normals, and relevant material information. As both IFC and OBJ support color material information, our tool will also attempt to convert the color information.
