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.

A GLB file, short for "Graphics Library Binary," is a widely used file format in the realm of 3D graphics and virtual reality (VR) applications. It is a binary version of the popular 3D file format called GLTF (Graphics Library Transmission Format). The GLB format efficiently encapsulates 3D model data, textures, and animations into a single file, making it easy to share and load complex 3D scenes seamlessly across various platforms and software.
GLB files are essential for web-based 3D applications as they enable faster loading times and better performance compared to traditional formats. By packaging all the required assets into a single binary file, it reduces the number of HTTP requests necessary for loading the 3D content. Furthermore, GLB files use binary data, which takes up less space and can be parsed more quickly by applications, providing a smoother user experience for 3D web applications and VR experiences.
One of the key advantages of the GLB format is its compatibility with a wide range of devices, platforms, and 3D software. This cross-platform support allows 3D artists, game developers, and designers to create content in their preferred tools and easily distribute it without worrying about compatibility issues. As a result, GLB has become the de facto standard for delivering 3D content on the web and has played a significant role in driving the adoption of 3D graphics in various applications, including e-commerce, education, entertainment, and more.
