The TIFF file extension is a raster graphics file format originally created in 1986 making it one of the older image file formats available. The format was created by Aldus Corporation (Now Adobe) for use in Desktop Publishing software is still a popular format which is still in use today.

The format has evolved over time from its original use in DTP applications, Fax machine software, Optical Character Recognition software and more. TIFF files are binary and can contain one or more images arranged in a rectangular data format within the file.

ExtensionOBJ

Type3D Model
Mime Typetext/plain

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.

Information for converting from TIFF to OBJ

Our TIFF converter will convert your TIFF 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 OBJ model ready for download for further processing in your favourite 3D editing package or for printing on a 3D printer.
