Our free and fast tool will convert most 3D mesh or ABC (Alembic) model files to a standard PNG (Portable Network Graphics) 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 PNG file and will ready for download shortly afterwards. For more information about the ABC to PNG conversion process see the conversion information section below for more information.
Here are 2 simple steps to convert your ABC to PNG.
First click the "Upload..." button, select your ABC file to upload. Select any configuration options. When the ABC to PNG conversion has completed, you can download your PNG file straight away.
We aim to process all ABC to PNG 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 ABC file you submit to us. The resulting PNG file, once created is deleted 15 minutes after upload and the download link will expire after this time.
Yes! Our ABC to PNG 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 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.
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.
When converting from ABC files our tool will convert all 3D geometry and color material information where possible.
The PNG graphics file format is a commonly used format for storing 2D images which can be highly compressed by the use of 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.
