Convert Your 3D Mesh/Model AMF Files to GLB

Our free and fast tool will convert most 3D mesh or AMF (Additive Manufacturing File) model files to a standard GLB (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 AMF files, up to 25 files at a time can be converted.

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

How to Convert your AMF to GLB Online?

Here are 2 simple steps to convert your AMF to GLB.

Upload a AMF

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

Download your GLB

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

Frequently Asked Questions

How can I convert my AMF file to GLB?

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

How long does it take to convert my AMF to GLB?

We aim to process all AMF to GLB 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 AMF to GLB 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 AMF to GLB on ImageToStl.com?

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

Can I convert AMF to GLB on Windows, Linux, Android, iOS or Mac OS?

Yes! Our AMF to GLB 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 AMF 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 AMF files, can I batch convert my AMF to GLB?

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

How does it work?

Converting from the AMF file format to GLB 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 AMF file to a valid GLB 3D model. Lets start with the conversion process, which involves the following steps:

Step 1: Read the Source AMF File

In its simplest form, an AMF file is a plain text file containing human readable 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 AMF 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 GLB format.

Step 3: Saving to the GLB 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 GLB format.

Description

The AMF or Additive Manufacturing File format is an open standard 3D file format primarily used within additive manufacturing processes such as 3D printing. The initial release version of the file was in 2011 and the format continues to be developed today.

As this is a 3D file format the contents which are XML based describe one or many 3D objects broken down into solid volumes defined with vertices and triangles. The format has support for color and texture materials.

AMF Notes

When converting from AMF files our tool will try to convert any geometric and color data found in the model file.

Description

The GLB file format which can also have the GLTF 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 GLB format is an open standard which is maintained by the Khronos Group.

GLB Notes

If your original model file contains texture images and other texture related data, these will be included in final GLB file.
