Convert Your 3D Mesh/Model 3MF Files to X3D

Our free and fast tool will convert most 3D mesh or 3MF (3D Manufacturing Format) model files to a standard X3D (Extensible 3D Graphics) 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 X3D file and will ready for download shortly afterwards. For more information about the 3MF to X3D conversion process see the conversion information section below for more information.

FAQ

How can I convert my 3MF file to X3D?

First click the "Upload..." button, select your 3MF file to upload. Select any configuration options. When the 3MF to X3D conversion has completed, you can download your X3D file straight away.

How long does it take to convert my 3MF to X3D?

We aim to process all 3MF to X3D 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 3MF to X3D 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 3MF to X3D on ImageToStl.com?

Yes, of course! We do not store the 3MF file you submit to us. The resulting X3D file, once created is deleted 1 hour after upload and the download link will expire after this time.

Can I convert 3MF to X3D on Windows, Linux, Android, iOS or Mac OS?

Yes! Our 3MF to X3D tool will run on any system with a modern web browser. No specialist software is needed to run any of our conversion tools.

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.

Description

The X3D file format was introduced in 2002 as a successor to the 3D VRML (WRL) file format. X3D files contain 3D mesh and model information defined using vertices, faces, normals and material data making it broadly as capable as the older VRML format.

X3D files are structured Xml text based files allowing full 3D scenes containing models comprised of 3D mesh data and other simple shapes. There are browser extensions that allow X3D files to be directly embedded within Html to allow rendering directly to a web page however the format has not seen widespread adoption.

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

X3D Notes

X3D files support material and color information. If your uploaded model contains color information our tool will attempt to save this in the X3D file at the end of the conversion process. Texture information is not supported at this time.

Supported Features

  • Mesh geometry
  • Mesh material colors
  • Vertex colors

Unsupported Features

  • Textures
