Our free and fast tool will convert most 3D mesh or ABC (Alembic) 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. 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 XYZ file and will ready for download shortly afterwards. For more information about the ABC to XYZ conversion process see the conversion information section below for more information.
Here are 2 simple steps to convert your ABC to XYZ.
First click the "Upload..." button, select your ABC file to upload. Select any configuration options. When the ABC to XYZ conversion has completed, you can download your XYZ file straight away.
We aim to process all ABC 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 ABC file you submit to us. The resulting XYZ file, once created is deleted 15 minutes after upload and the download link will expire after this time.
Yes! Our ABC 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 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.
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 XYZ files individually or download them all in a single ZIP file.
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 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.
