Here are 2 simple steps to convert your SCAD to FBX using our fast and free SCAD converter tool.
A SCAD file, short for "Script-based Computer-Aided Design," is a type of plain text file used primarily in the field of 3D modeling and design. It is commonly associated with OpenSCAD, an open-source software tool used to create 3D models using constructive solid geometry (CSG). Unlike traditional CAD software that employs a graphical user interface for modeling, SCAD files are written in a scripting language. These files typically have a .scad extension and contain a series of commands and parameters that define the shapes, dimensions, and operations required to construct the 3D model.
Within a SCAD file, users can define basic geometric shapes such as cubes, spheres, cylinders, and more complex shapes by applying operations like union, difference, and intersection to combine or modify them. The use of a scripting language in SCAD files enables users to create parametric models, allowing them to easily modify dimensions and characteristics of the model by changing variables in the script. This flexibility makes SCAD files particularly useful for designing customizable objects and prototypes, where various iterations may be required to meet specific design requirements.
Once a SCAD file is created and the script is defined, it can be rendered by the OpenSCAD software, which interprets the script and generates a visual representation of the 3D model. Users can then preview the model, make further adjustments if needed, and export it to standard 3D file formats like STL (stereolithography) for 3D printing or rendering in other CAD software. SCAD files have gained popularity among the maker community and designers due to their simplicity, modifiability, and compatibility with 3D printing technologies, facilitating the rapid prototyping of complex objects.

FBX (Filmbox) is a file format developed by Autodesk that is widely used in the 3D modeling and animation industry. It serves as a platform-independent, open file format that allows for the exchange of 3D data between different software applications. This interchange format is particularly popular in the fields of animation, virtual reality, and game development due to its ability to preserve complex 3D scenes, including geometry, textures, animations, and camera movements.
FBX files store 3D data in a structured manner, using a combination of binary and ASCII data. The binary data efficiently represents the geometry and other scene elements, while the ASCII data contains metadata and other scene information. This combination allows for a balance between file size and human-readable content, making it suitable for both storage and collaboration purposes.
Moreover, FBX files support a wide range of 3D software applications, including Autodesk's own products like Maya and 3ds Max, as well as other popular software like Blender and Unity. This compatibility makes FBX a versatile format for sharing 3D assets and projects across different platforms and workflows, contributing to its status as an industry-standard file format in the world of 3D content creation.
First click the "Upload..." button, select your SCAD file to upload. Your SCAD file will be uploaded to our servers. When the SCAD to FBX conversion has completed, you can download your FBX file straight away.
We aim to process all SCAD to FBX conversions as quickly as possible, this usually takes around 5 seconds however this can be longer for certain files, so please be patient.
We aim to provide the best conversion experience. Our tools are under constant review and development with new features being added every week.
