Convert Your 3D Mesh/Model ASE Files to GLB

Our free and fast tool will convert most 3D mesh or ASE (Ascii Scene Export) 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 ASE files; up to 25 files at a time can be converted.

To convert your ASE 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 be ready for download shortly afterwards. For more information about the ASE to GLB conversion process, see the conversion information section below.

How to Convert your ASE to GLB Online?

Here are two simple steps to convert your ASE to GLB.

Upload a ASE

Click the "Upload a ASE File" button and select a ASE 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 ASE file to GLB?

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

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

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

Yes, of course! We do not store the ASE 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 ASE to GLB on Windows, Linux, Android, iOS or Mac OS?

Yes! Our ASE 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 ASE 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 ASE files; can I batch convert my ASE to GLB?

Yes! Our ASE tool supports full batch conversions. You can upload up to 25 and ASE 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.

File Format Information for ASE to GLB

Mime Typetext/plain

ToolsASE Converters, 3D Model Voxelizer, Create ASE Animation, Text to ASE, ASE Viewer

Description

The ASE format (Ascii Scene Export) is a plain text file format used to represent a full 3D scene. The 3ds Max software is the main supporter of ASE as an export format, though there is support within other applications such as Blender for ASE files.

An ASE file will contain 3D geometry data such as vertices, faces, normals, and other data. As the data is stored in human-readable text format, the files lend themselves to being easy to parse; however, they can become quite large when used with complex 3D scenes.

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 modeling applications such as Blender and MeshLab. The GLB format is an open standard that 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 the final GLB file.

Supported Features

  • V2.0 and above files only
  • Mesh geometry
  • Materials
  • Textures

Unsupported Features

  • Animations

How does it work?

Converting from the ASE 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 ASE file to a valid GLB 3D model. Let's start with the conversion process, which involves the following steps:

Step 1: Read the Source ASE File

In its simplest form, an ASE 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.

For more information regarding the ASE file format, please see this great article that goes into a lot of detail explaining the ASE format.

Step 2: Process File Data

With the ASE 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 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 it to the GLB format.
