Free Online XYZ to PLY Converter

You can use our XYZ to PLY conversion tool to quickly and easily convert your 3D model files for free. You may upload up to 20 files at one time, and our batch XYZ to PLY converter will process each 3D model and present you with a download link for each file once completed.

Or drag and drop your files here to upload.
A maximum of 20 files can be uploaded at once.

Please note: Your XYZ file, once uploaded to our server, will be deleted 15 minutes after upload, so please download your converted XYZ file before this time.

Our 3D model XYZ to PLY tool will load your XYZ file and, where supported, attempt to extract all the relevant 3D features, such as geometry, textures, and animations. To access the 3D conversion configuration options, click the button when you have selected your files. The current options support the ability to voxelize your 3D model and more.

An XYZ file, as its name suggests, is a simple 3D graphics file format capable of storing the 3D points that make up a 3D object. Only the points, or vertices, are stored in what is known as a point cloud format.

XYZ files are simple ASCII text files consisting of a vertex defined on each line of the text document. Only the vertex coordinates (X, Y, and Z) are stored; additional vertex data, such as normal and texture coordinates, are not recorded.

The format can be loaded into several 3D modeling programs and can also be converted to other point cloud formats, such as PTX, using our own XYZ converter.

When converting 3D model or mesh files using our XYZ converter, we will attempt to convert color materials into a suitable format for use in the converted file.

The PLY format, also known as the Standard Triangle Format, is a popular 3D model file format originally created by Stanford University in the 1990s as a means to store 3D model data in a flexible and expandable format. There can be both binary and ASCII text formats in PLY files.

Both binary and text formats share a common header section that defines what geometric attributes (such as vertices, normals, faces, and colors) are present in the data. It is also possible to specify custom data to be associated with a vertex or object face.

PLY files can be opened with a wide range of 3D editing software; for example, Blender can both import and export to the PLY format with no additional software required.

When converting your XYZ to PLY, our tool will attempt to accurately convert any color or material information.

Information for converting from XYZ to PLY

Your XYZ file will be converted to a PLY file using our unified 3D model and mesh conversion tool. Our XYZ 3D tool performs accurate conversions of 3D elements such as vertices, faces, normals, and relevant material information. As both XYZ and PLY support color material information, our tool will also attempt to convert the color information.
