The OpenSCAD file format or SCAD is the native file format of the popular free CAD software OpenSCAD used for creating 3D CAD models. The SCAD software is still in active development with new features being added with each version.

SCAD files are text based files containing script which allows the designer to describe the CAD model programmatically. SCAD files are then compiled to produce the final 3D render.

The OBJ file format originally created by Wavefront Technologies and later adopted by many other 3D software vendors is a simple text-based file format for describing 3D model/geometry. This data can include Vertices, Faces, Normals, Texture Coordinates and references to external Texture files.

As the format is text-based it is relatively straight-forward to parse by 3D modelling applications. A downside of the text-based format is the files can be rather large compared to similar binary formats such as STL and compressed files such as 3MF.
