Convert Your 3D Mesh/Model ABC Files to GLTF

to

Our free and fast tool will convert most 3D mesh or ABC (Alembic) model files to a standard GLTF (Graphics Language Transmission Format) file that can then be edited further in most popular 3D editing packages such as Blender or 3D printed without any further processing. Our conversion tool can also batch convert multiple ABC files, up to 25 files at a time can be converted.

To convert your ABC file click the Upload button above and select the file to convert. Once selected, the file will be converted to a GLTF file and will ready for download shortly afterwards. For more information about the ABC to GLTF conversion process see the conversion information section below for more information.

How to Convert your ABC to GLTF Online?

Here are 2 simple steps to convert your ABC to GLTF.

Upload a ABC

Click the "Upload a ABC File" button and select a ABC to upload. The maximum file size is 100MB.

Download your GLTF

Click the download link once completed to receive your GLTF file.

Frequently Asked Questions

How can I convert my ABC file to GLTF?

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

How long does it take to convert my ABC to GLTF?

We aim to process all ABC to GLTF 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 ABC to GLTF conversion?

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.

Is it safe to convert my ABC to GLTF on ImageToStl.com?

Yes, of course! We do not store the ABC file you submit to us. The resulting GLTF file, once created is deleted 15 minutes after upload and the download link will expire after this time.

Can I convert ABC to GLTF on Windows, Linux, Android, iOS or Mac OS?

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

What if I am using an Ad Blocker, will that affect things?

Yes. Although you can use an Ad Blocker, if you like our ABC 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.

I have several ABC files, can I batch convert my ABC to GLTF?

Yes! Our ABC tool supports full batch conversions. You can upload up to 25 ABC files at a time. Our tool will convert them all as quickly as possible. Once completed, you can either download the GLTF files individually or download them all in a single ZIP file.

How does it work?

Converting from the ABC file format to GLTF can be a complex process and any tool used for this conversion process needs to be able to handle a variety of data conversion tasks as well as identify any defects within the 3D model and fix them. Here we will explain the conversion process used by our tool to accurately convert your ABC file to a valid GLTF 3D model. Lets start with the conversion process, which involves the following steps:

Step 1: Read the Source ABC File

In its simplest form, an ABC file is a binary data file containing 3D data such as vertices, faces, normals and more. When combined, these make up the 3D model you see on your screen.

Step 2: Process File Data

With the ABC file data read, our tool generates an internal representation of the full 3D model and will attempt to fix any geometry issues encountered. Along with repairing any issues with the 3D model, the tool will remove any duplicated vertices and prepare the model ready for exporting to the GLTF format.

Step 3: Saving to the GLTF Format

With the conversion process entering its final stages, our tool now needs to take the in-memory 3D model we have created in step 2 and convert this to the GLTF format.

Description

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.

Description

The GLTF file format which can also have the GLB file extension depending on whether the content is binary or text/Json is a 3D file format used to describe 3D worlds and as such contains geometric data such as vertices, faces, normals, animations and other 3D scene related data.

The format, described by its creators as the "JPEG of 3D", has gained in popularity and is supported by a wide range of 3D modelling applications such as Blender and MeshLab. The GLTF format is an open standard which is maintained by the Khronos Group.
