The PNG graphics file format is a commonly used format for storing 2D images which can be highly compressed by the use a palette if the image has a sufficiently low number of colors (256 colors in general). The PNG file is then further compressed using the DEFLATE compression algorithm to ensure small file sizes that are fast to download.

PNG files are seen as the logical successor to the GIF image file format and was devised in the mid-1990's as a superior format to GIF. PNG files are generally used for company logos, icons and other non-photographic image content. Saving a digital photo in the PNG format will create a much larger file than an equivalent JPG image hence the PNG format being unsuitable for most digital photo content.

The XYZ is a 3D file format used for representing 3D Point Clouds. The format contains only positional information (X, Y, Z coordinates) for the individual points. The format is often used for digital elevation modelling of terrain for later processing in 3D modelling applications.

As the format only contains positional information a common task is to convert this into a fully surfaced 3D model using methods such as Alpha Shapes or Delaunay Triangulation. The format can also be viewed without further processing in its raw format.

Information for converting from PNG to XYZ

Our PNG converter will convert your PNG file to a 3D model using the Heightmap process whereby 2D pixels, based on their luminosity, are converted into 3D space to create a full 3D XYZ model ready for download for further processing in your favourite 3D editing package or for printing on a 3D printer.

Frequently Asked Questions

How can I convert my PNG file to XYZ?

First click the "Upload..." button, select your PNG file to upload. Your PNG file will be uploaded to our servers. When the PNG to XYZ conversion has completed, you can download your XYZ file straight away.

How long does it take to convert my PNG to XYZ?

We aim to process all PNG to XYZ conversions as quickly as possible, this usually takes around 5 seconds however this can be longer for certain files, so please be patient.

How accurate is the conversion to the XYZ 3D Point Cloud format?

Our PNG conversion tool will extract only the vertex data from your PNG file. This will then be used to create the final XYZ file.

How is the 3D model generated from my PNG image?

Our tool uses a Heightmap process whereby the XYZ 3D model is created based on the luminosity of the individual pixels in you PNG image.

Is there a limit to the size of my image?

Yes, to ensure our tool converts the PNG image quickly and with a reasonable final file size, your tool will resize any image larger than 600x600 pixels.
