Free Online PCD to PNG Converter

Here is our free-to-use PCD to PNG conversion tool that will take your 3D PCD model file and convert it into a high-quality PNG image file. If you wish to batch convert multiple PCD files, our converter supports up to 20 files at a time, with a dedicated download link being provided for each image 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 PCD file, once uploaded to our server, will be deleted 15 minutes after upload, so please download your converted PCD file before this time.

With our 3D model PCD to PNG converter, your PCD file is uploaded, and a snapshot of the rendered model is created and saved into a PNG image file format. If your PCD model has any textures, you can include them with your PCD file at the time of upload. Our tool will automatically determine if any additional files are required to render your PCD 3D model.

File format information for PCD and PNG

Mime Typeapplication/octet-stream

The PCD file format, short for Point Cloud Data, is a 3D graphics format designed specifically for storing 3D point clouds. A point cloud is simply a collection of points in 3D space, along with optional color information.

Points are stored within the PCD file in the form of their X, Y, and Z coordinates. If the point is to be rendered in a particular color, this is also included with the coordinate. PCD files can be either plain ASCII text or binary in format, with the binary format being more compact.

PCD files can be opened with several 3D editing packages and also converted to other point cloud formats, such as PTX, using our suite of PCD conversion tools that are designed specifically for point cloud data conversion.

PNG files are a widely used graphics file format used in areas where high-quality images (often with transparency) are required while also retaining a small file size. They are one of the most common formats of file used for web and print mediums and are particularly useful for logos, icons, and other images where multi-level transparency is desired.

The format itself was created in the 1990's with the main aim of storing computer graphics in a high-quality format while minimizing the required storage space. The longer-term aim was to displace the GIF file format and make PNG the number one format for non-lossy, high-quality image formats on the then-burgeoning world wide web.

One of the selling points of the PNG format is its support for multiple levels of transparency, making it superior to the GIF format, which can only handle a single level of transparency. Also, like GIFs, the PNG format supports palletizing image colors down to 256 or 16 colors to help reduce the file size of the PNG.

Information for converting from PCD to PNG

Our tool will internally render your PCD file and capture an image of the 3D render, which will be saved to a PNG file using a high-quality setting, ready for you to download.
