Our free and fast tool will convert most 3D mesh or 3MF (3D Manufacturing Format) model files to a standard ABC (Alembic) 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 3MF file click the Upload button above and select the file to convert. Once selected, the file will be converted to a ABC file and will ready for download shortly afterwards. For more information about the 3MF to ABC conversion process see the conversion information section below for more information.
Here are 2 simple steps to convert your 3MF to ABC.
First click the "Upload..." button, select your 3MF file to upload. Select any configuration options. When the 3MF to ABC conversion has completed, you can download your ABC file straight away.
We aim to process all 3MF to ABC 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 3MF file you submit to us. The resulting ABC file, once created is deleted 1 hour after upload and the download link will expire after this time.
Yes! Our 3MF to ABC 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 3MF 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.
|Full Name||3D Manufacturing Format|
3MF files are a modern 3D file format designed specifically for use with 3D printable models (additive manufacturing). It was designed to be the successor to the popular legacy STL format (also a common format in 3D printing) to overcome the limitations of that format.
The format of 3MF files is XML based that are compressed with the standard Zip file compression resulting in small, easily transferable files. The format supports 3D meshes along with associated materials and textures all contained within the Zip file.
If your 3MF file contains textures, these will be ignored. If a material contains color information this will be translated where possible.
The ABC (Alembic) file format is a graphics format containing 3D content which was originally developed by Sony Pictures Imageworks and Industrial Light & Magic and released in 2011. The aim of the ABC format is to enable the efficient interchange of 3D assets between different working entities.
The format can contain a variety of 3D object formats including polygon meshes, NURBS, parametric curves and more. The files can be opened by many 3D graphics applications including the popular open-source Blender application.
