Convert Your 3D Mesh/Model 3DM Files to XYZ

to

Our free and fast tool will convert most 3D mesh or 3DM (Rhinoceros 3D) model files to a standard XYZ (Point Cloud) file that can then be edited further in most popular 3D editing packages such as Blender or 3D printed without any further processing.

To convert your 3DM file click the Upload button above and select the file to convert. Once selected, the file will be converted to a XYZ file and will ready for download shortly afterwards. For more information about the 3DM to XYZ conversion process see the conversion information section below for more information.

FAQ

How can I convert my 3DM file to XYZ?

First click the "Upload..." button, select your 3DM file to upload. Select any configuration options. When the 3DM to XYZ conversion has completed, you can download your XYZ file straight away.

How long does it take to convert my 3DM to XYZ?

We aim to process all 3DM to XYZ conversions as quickly as possible, this usually takes around 5 seconds but can be more for larger more complex files so please be patient.

How accurate is the 3DM to XYZ conversion?

We aim to create the most accurate conversions with our tools. Our tools are under constant development with new features being added every week.

Is it safe to convert my 3DM to XYZ on ImageToStl.com?

Yes, of course! We do not store the 3DM file you submit to us. The resulting XYZ file, once created is deleted 1 hour after upload and the download link will expire after this time.

Can I convert 3DM to XYZ on Windows, Linux, Android, iOS or Mac OS?

Yes! Our 3DM to XYZ tool will run on any system with a modern web browser. No specialist software is needed to run any of our conversion tools.

File format information for 3DM to XYZ

Extension: 3DM

Full Name: Rhinoceros 3D

Type: 3D Model

Mime Type: x-world/x-3dmf

Format: Binary

Description

The 3DM format also known as Rhino3D or Rhinoceros 3D is a 3D graphics model file format developed and used in CAD applications, Industrial Design and 3D Printing. The format has some compatibility with Adobe Illustrator and can be exported as an AI file using vector graphics.

Although it is a 3D file format it stores data in the NURBS geometry format which allows for greater mathematically precision compared to triangle/polygon based mesh geometry formats such as STL. Along with support for converting between other CAD formats the 3DM format can also supports two different scripting languages.

3DM Notes

If your 3DM file contains textures, these will be ignored. If a material contains color information this will be translated where possible.

Supported Features

  • Mesh geometry
  • Mesh material colors

Unsupported Features

  • Textures
  • Animations

Extension: XYZ

Full Name: Point Cloud

Type: 3D Model

Mime Type: text/plain

Format: Text

Description

The XYZ is a 3D file format used for representing 3D Point Clouds. The format contains only positional information (X, Y, Z coordinates) for the individual points. The format is often used for digital elevation modelling of terrain for later processing in 3D modelling applications.

As the format only contains positional information a common task is to convert this into a fully surfaced 3D model using methods such as Alpha Shapes or Delaunay Triangulation. The format can also be viewed without further processing in its raw format.

XYZ Notes

Only vertex information will be saved to the XYZ Point Cloud file generated by our tool, all other information such as faces and material colors will be discarded in the final file due to this information not being supported.

When creating a preview of the XYZ file our tool will render the Point Cloud as individual squares.

Supported Features

  • Mesh vertex data
