Here we detail how to convert your 123DX file to an OBJ file using the export options found within the 123D Design application. Currently our converters cannot convert directly from 123DX to OBJ, however using the built-in export functions of 123D Design we can achieve the conversion.
Firstly, you will need to load your 123DX file into 123D Design and select the export to STEP option. Once you have your file in the STEP format you can use our STEP to OBJ converter to complete the conversion process.
Here are 2 simple steps to convert your 123DX to OBJ.
Use our STEP to OBJ converter to complete the conversion
We aim to process all 123DX to OBJ conversions as quickly as possible, this usually takes around 5 seconds but can be more for larger more complex files so please be patient.
We aim to create the most accurate conversions with our tools. Our tools are under constant development with new features and improvements being added every week.
Yes, of course! We do not store the 123DX file you submit to us. The resulting OBJ file, once created is deleted 15 minutes after upload and the download link will expire after this time.
Yes! Our 123DX to OBJ tool will run on any system with a modern web browser. No specialist software is needed to run any of our conversion tools.
Yes. Although you can use an Ad Blocker, if you like our 123DX conversion tool please consider white-listing our site. When an Ad Blocker is enabled there are some conversion limits on some of our tools and processing/conversion times will be longer.
Yes! If your 123DX file contains textured geometry, the texture image files along with the texture coordinates (UV data) will be exported with the final OBJ file.
Autodesk 123DX, which was initially released in 2009 whose native file format was 123DX, was an easy to use Computer Aided Design (CAD) application aimed at home/hobbyist users for creating 3D models.
The 123DX application was retired in 2016 with users moving on to the more advanced Fusion 360 application from Autodesk.
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.
Our tool will save any material and texture files separately, these additional files will be included with your final OBJ file at the time of download.
