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.

A ZIP file is a widely used data compression and archiving format that allows multiple files and folders to be compressed into a single, more compact package. The term "ZIP" refers to the file extension (.zip) commonly associated with this format. ZIP files are used to reduce the overall file size, making it easier and faster to transfer or share a group of files. They are particularly useful when sending files over the internet or storing large sets of data efficiently.

Inside a ZIP file, individual files and directories are compressed using a lossless compression algorithm, which means no data is lost during the compression process. This compression significantly reduces the file size, allowing users to save storage space and reduce bandwidth usage when transmitting the files. ZIP files can be created and extracted using various software applications, and most modern operating systems have built-in support for handling ZIP files natively, making it easy to work with them without the need for additional software.

ZIP files also offer the benefit of organizing related files together in one archive, making it convenient to group files that belong to a particular project or share files that are related to a specific topic. Additionally, ZIP files can be encrypted with a password to provide an extra layer of security, preventing unauthorized access to the contents of the archive. Due to their versatility, widespread compatibility, and ability to efficiently package and compress files, ZIP files remain a popular choice for organizing, sharing, and archiving data across various platforms and systems.
