Free Online OFF to PLY Converter

You can use our OFF to PLY 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 OFF to PLY 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 OFF file, once uploaded to our server, will be deleted 15 minutes after upload, so please download your converted OFF file before this time.

Our 3D model OFF to PLY tool will load your OFF 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.

File format information for OFF and PLY

Full NameObject File Format
Type3D Model
Mime Typetext/plain
Opens WithMeshLab, CAD Assistant

The OFF file format is a general-purpose text file format used to represent 3D models and their associated geometry. The format, also known as Object File Format, compared to other 3D formats such as FBX, is very simple in its capabilities.

The main limitation is that it is only able to store the vertex and face information of the 3D model. Material information, textures, and face or vertex colors are not supported. Along with these limitations, the format is plain ASCII text, meaning large or complex 3D models will lead to very large OFF files being produced.

OFF files can be opened in most 3D modeling applications. Where integrated support may be lacking, there are usually third-party plugins and modules that can add support for OFF files.

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

The PLY format, also known as the Standard Triangle Format, is a popular 3D model file format originally created by Stanford University in the 1990s as a means to store 3D model data in a flexible and expandable format. There can be both binary and ASCII text formats in PLY files.

Both binary and text formats share a common header section that defines what geometric attributes (such as vertices, normals, faces, and colors) are present in the data. It is also possible to specify custom data to be associated with a vertex or object face.

PLY files can be opened with a wide range of 3D editing software; for example, Blender can both import and export to the PLY format with no additional software required.

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

Information for converting from OFF to PLY

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