The LWO or LightWave 3D Object file is a 3D graphics file format originally released in 1990 and available for the Amiga, Mac OS and Windows. The LightWave software was developed by NewTek and is used in Television and Film production of 3D digital effects.

The LightWave software is still a popular choice for 3D modelling and digital effects with the most recent version being released in 2021. The format can contain 3D model/mesh information along with Material and Animations.

LWO Converter Capabilities

Our LWO 3D Model/Mesh tool does not support any color material data contained within LWO files so the converted file will not contain any color information.

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.
