A maximum of 20 files can be uploaded at once.
Here are 3 simple steps to convert your X-Plane file using our fast and free X-Plane file converter tool.
Not to be confused with the Wavefront OBJ format, the OBJ8 format is a separate format used in conjunction with the X-Plane 3D simulator software as a means of transferring data between X-Plane and other 3D modelling applications and tools.
The OBJ8 format, as it is known, uses the OBJ file extension and stores 3D model data represented by a list of vertices, triangles, and lines. Other data is included in the format, such as lighting, texture information, and other related data.
OBJ8 files are text-based, with each vertex stored on a single line within the file. The vertex includes its X, Y, and Z position, normal, and texture coordinates. Following the vertices is a list of face indices, which, in the case of a 3D model, represent the triangles that make up the model.
X-Plane Converter Capabilities
Our X-Plane converter can both convert from and to OBJ files and our developers are working to improve our OBJ conversion tools in future versions. Our X-Plane 3D Model/Mesh tool does not support any color material data contained within OBJ files so the converted file will not contain any color information.
Our X-Plane 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.
No, due to the different methods of assigning textures to a 3D model textures are not currently supported. If your X-Plane model contains textures or references to external texture files, these will be ignored.
Yes! Our X-Plane conversion tools are 100% free to use.
No, you can convert as many files as you wish. We do not impose any conversion limits on our X-Plane conversion tools.
We aim to process all X-Plane 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.
Once your X-Plane file has been uploaded and we know the file format you wish to convert it to our bespoke conversion software will convert your X-Plane and make it available for you to download with a unique download Url.
Yes, of course it is! Your X-Plane, once converted is deleted 1 hour after upload and the download link will expire after this time.
Yes! Our X-Plane conversion tools will run on any system with a modern web browser.
