Our free and fast tool will convert most 3D mesh or DAE (COLLADA - Collaborative Design Activity) model files to a standard ABC (Alembic) 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 DAE files, up to 25 files at a time can be converted.
To convert your DAE file click the Upload button above and select the file to convert. Once selected, the file will be converted to a ABC file and will ready for download shortly afterwards. For more information about the DAE to ABC conversion process see the conversion information section below for more information.
Here are 2 simple steps to convert your DAE to ABC.
First click the "Upload..." button, select your DAE file to upload. Select any configuration options. When the DAE to ABC conversion has completed, you can download your ABC file straight away.
We aim to process all DAE to ABC 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 DAE file you submit to us. The resulting ABC file, once created is deleted 15 minutes after upload and the download link will expire after this time.
Yes! Our DAE to ABC 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 DAE 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 DAE tool supports full batch conversions. You can upload up to 25 DAE files at a time. Our tool will convert them all as quickly as possible. Once completed, you can either download the ABC files individually or download them all in a single Zip file.
The DAE format (also known as COLLADA) is a 3D file format used to describe 3D models, meshes and 3D worlds using a simple text based structure. The format was introduced in 2004 by Sony Computer Entertainment and is currently managed by the Khronos Group.
DAE files are a text/Xml based file format containing 3D geometric information used to describe 3D objects and meshes such as vertices, faces, animations, materials, camera/lighting elements and other related metadata. The format has widespread usage and support with applications such as Blender and MeshLab being able to read and write to the format.
If your DAE file contains textures (which are separate files), these will be ignored. If a material contains color information this will be translated where possible.
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.
