Our free and fast tool will convert most 3D mesh or 3MF (3D Manufacturing Format) 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 3MF 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 3MF to XYZ conversion process see the conversion information section below for more information.
Here are 2 simple steps to convert your 3MF to XYZ.
First click the "Upload..." button, select your 3MF file to upload. Select any configuration options. When the 3MF to XYZ conversion has completed, you can download your XYZ file straight away.
We aim to process all 3MF 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.
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 XYZ file, once created is deleted 1 hour after upload and the download link will expire after this time.
Yes! Our 3MF 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.
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.
|Full Name||Point Cloud|
|Type||3D Model/Point Cloud|
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.
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.
