Here are 3 simple steps to create an OBJ file from a CDT file.
Click the "Upload a File" button and select a CDT to upload. The maximum file size is 100MB.
Set the dimensions and other options and click the "Convert to OBJ" button to convert your CDT to OBJ.
First click the "Upload..." button, select your CDT file to upload. Select any configuration options. When the CDT to OBJ conversion has completed, you can download your OBJ file straight away.
We aim to process all CDT to OBJ 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 CDT file you submit to us. The resulting OBJ file, once created is deleted 15 minutes after upload and the download link will expire after this time.
Yes! Our CDT to OBJ 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 CDT 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! If your CDT file contains textured geometry, the texture image files along with the texture coordinates (UV data) will be exported with the final OBJ file.
CDT is a native file format used by CorelDRAW created in 1989. It is a vector graphics format that started life on Windows 2 and has evolved over the years to support newer features and is still as popular as ever.
These files are binary in format and usually represent a group of assets in a zip format (whilst retaining the CDT file extension). CorelDRAW is still being developed today and is the primary program for working with CDT files.
The OBJ file format originally created by Wavefront Technologies and later adopted by many other 3D software vendors is a simple text-based file format for describing 3D model/geometry. This data can include Vertices, Faces, Normals, Texture Coordinates and references to external Texture files.
As the format is text-based it is relatively straight-forward to parse by 3D modelling applications. A downside of the text-based format is the files can be rather large compared to similar binary formats such as STL and compressed files such as 3MF.
Our tool will save any material and texture files separately, these additional files will be included with your final OBJ file at the time of download.
