Description

The PLY format is a 3D model format originally developed and released in 1994 with its primary use being to store three-dimensional data from 3D digital scanners. The format known as the Polygon File Format and also the Stanford Triangle Format can be either a binary or text based format.

The file format stores 3D geometric information such as vertices, faces, vertex normals, color and other custom data. The format is still in use with many PLY models available to download and PLY files can be loaded into most popular 3D applications such as Blender.

PLY Notes

PLY files support per vertex color information. If your uploaded model contains color information our tool will attempt to save this in the PLY file at the end of the conversion process.

Supported Features

  • Mesh geometry
  • Vertex colors
  • Binary and Text versions supported when converting from PLY
  • Binary only version when converting to PLY
