Here are 2 simple steps to convert your TAR to OBJ using our fast and free TAR converter tool.
A TAR file, short for Tape Archive, is a type of computer file format used for archiving and bundling multiple files together into a single file. It is often used in Unix and Unix-like operating systems but can be found and used on other platforms as well. The TAR format does not perform compression by itself; it simply collects multiple files and directories into one unit, maintaining their individual properties such as file permissions, timestamps, and ownership information. Because of this, TAR files are commonly used as a container for transferring and storing files while preserving their original attributes.
When creating a TAR file, all the specified files and directories are gathered and stored sequentially in the archive, which is later used for distribution, backup, or transportation. The TAR format is particularly useful for creating backups, as it enables easy preservation of directory structures and metadata. However, since TAR files are not compressed, they tend to be larger than their compressed counterparts like ZIP or GZIP archives. As a result, it is common to combine TAR files with compression algorithms (like GZIP or BZIP2) to create compressed TAR archives (e.g., .tar.gz or .tar.bz2) that reduce file size while maintaining the original structure and information.

An OBJ file is a widely used file format in 3D computer graphics that serves as a standard representation for 3D models. It stands for "Object" and was originally developed by Wavefront Technologies. OBJ files store geometric data, such as vertex positions, normals, texture coordinates, and face information, describing the surface of a 3D object. This data is presented in plain text, making OBJ files human-readable and easy to exchange between various 3D modeling and rendering software.
The structure of an OBJ file is based on vertices (points in 3D space), which form the building blocks of the 3D model's shape. These vertices are organized into faces, typically triangles or quads, representing the surfaces of the object. Alongside the geometric data, OBJ files can also include material information, enabling the application of textures and shaders to the 3D model, providing it with color, reflectivity, and other visual properties.
Due to its simplicity and compatibility across different software platforms, the OBJ file format has become a popular choice for sharing 3D models. However, being a relatively basic format, OBJ files may not support complex features found in more advanced formats like animation data or high-level shader definitions. Despite this limitation, OBJ remains a widely adopted format in various industries, including gaming, animation, virtual reality, and 3D printing.
Our TAR archive converter will examine the contents of your TAR file and will look for any 3D model file that it may contain and this, once found, will be extracted and converted to a 3D OBJ file ready for download.
First click the "Upload..." button, select your TAR file to upload. Your TAR file will be uploaded to our servers. When the TAR to OBJ conversion has completed, you can download your OBJ file straight away.
We aim to process all TAR to OBJ 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.
