Convert Your 3D Mesh/Model 3MF Files to IDTF

to

Our free and fast tool will convert most 3D mesh or 3MF (3D Manufacturing Format) model files to a standard IDTF (PDF With integrated 3D Models) 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 IDTF file and will ready for download shortly afterwards. For more information about the 3MF to IDTF conversion process see the conversion information section below for more information.

File format information for 3MF to IDTF

Extension: 3MF

Full Name: 3D Manufacturing Format

Type: 3D Model

Mime Type: application/vnd.ms-package.3dmanufacturing-3dmodel+xml

Format: Binary

Description

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.

3MF Notes

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

Supported Features

  • Mesh geometry
  • Face and vertex colors

Unsupported Features

  • Textures

Extension: IDTF

Full Name: PDF With integrated 3D Models

Type: 3D Model

Mime Type: text/plain

Format: Text

Description

The IDTF file format is a bespoke format that enables interactive 3D content to be embedded within a PDF document. Currently only Adobe Reader and PDF-XChange Editor are able to render PDF documents that contain this 3D content.

IDTF files are a simple text-based format containing 3D geometry defined using vertices and faces in a structured hierarchy. Prior to importing the IDTF file to the PDF it must be converted to a U3D file format using one of the free applications such as IDTFConverter.

IDTF Notes

Currently only mesh geometry will be carried over from your source model to the final IDTF file for download.

Supported Features

  • Mesh geometry
