VTK file format information

Full NameVisualization Toolkit
Type3D Model
Mime Typeapplication/octet-stream

A VTK (Visualization Toolkit) file is a popular file format used in scientific and engineering applications to store and exchange data related to 3D visualization. VTK files are designed to represent geometric and visualization information such as points, lines, polygons, and other complex structures, making them ideal for storing data related to 3D models, simulations, and scientific visualizations. These files use a simple text-based format that allows for easy interpretation and manipulation by various software tools and libraries.

VTK files consist of header information, followed by data arrays containing the actual data points and their attributes. The header typically defines the file format version, the data type (e.g., ASCII or binary), and metadata describing the structure and properties of the data. The data arrays can hold information such as vertex coordinates, cell connectivity, scalar values, vector data, and other attributes, enabling the representation of both geometries and associated attributes required for rendering and analysis.

Due to its flexibility and widespread support, the VTK file format has become a standard in the scientific and engineering communities. It is commonly used in various visualization and simulation software, allowing researchers, scientists, and engineers to share and visualize their data seamlessly. Additionally, the VTK format's openness and accessibility have fostered the development of numerous tools and libraries that can read, write, and process VTK files, making it a vital component in the field of 3D data visualization and analysis.

VTK Converter Capabilities

Our VTK converter can both convert from and to VTK files and our developers are working to improve our VTK conversion tools in future versions. Our VTK 3D Model/Mesh tool does not support any color material data contained within VTK files so the converted file will not contain any color information.

Frequently Asked Questions

How accurate is the 3D file conversion?

Our VTK conversion tool can convert most 3D geometry including mesh vertices and faces with no loss of detail. Any color materials contained within the 3D model file will be converted where possible.

Are textures supported in the VTK conversion?

No, due to the different methods of assigning textures to a 3D model textures are not currently supported. If your VTK model contains textures or references to external texture files, these will be ignored.

Is it free to use the VTK conversion tools?

Yes! Our VTK conversion tools are 100% free to use.

Are there any VTK conversion usage limits?

No, you can convert as many files as you wish. We do not impose any conversion limits on our VTK conversion tools.

How long does it take to convert my VTK?

We aim to process all VTK conversions as quickly as possible, this usually takes around 5 seconds however this can be longer for certain files and significantly longer for some larger file formats, so please be patient.

What does the VTK conversion process involve?

Once your VTK file has been uploaded and we know the file format you wish to convert it to our bespoke conversion software will convert your VTK and make it available for you to download with a unique download Url.

Is it safe to convert my VTK on

Yes, of course it is! Your VTK, once converted is deleted 1 hour after upload and the download link will expire after this time.

Can I convert my VTK on Linux, Android, iOS or Mac OS?

Yes! Our VTK conversion tools will run on any system with a modern web browser.

Is there any support for me when using the VTK tool?

If you are having difficulty converting your VTK you can contact us and we will try to help where possible.
