File format information for 3MF to PNG

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: PNG

Full Name: Portable Network Graphics

Type: Image

Mime Type: image/png

Format: Binary

Description

The PNG graphics file format is a commonly used format for storing 2D images which can be highly compressed by the use a palette if the image has a sufficiently low number of colors (256 colors in general). The PNG file is then further compressed using the DEFLATE compression algorithm to ensure small file sizes that are fast to download.

PNG files are seen as the logical successor to the GIF image file format and was devised in the mid-1990's as a superior format to GIF. PNG files are generally used for company logos, icons and other non-photographic image content. Saving a digital photo in the PNG format will create a much larger file than an equivalent JPG image hence the PNG format being unsuitable for most digital photo content.
