Create compressed ZIP files with our easy to use and free tool. Our tool lets you upload a DAE (COLLADA - Collaborative Design Activity) file and compress and convert this file to a ZIP (ZIP Archive) file that you can then download and edit/use within your applications.
Here are 2 simple steps to convert your DAE to ZIP.
First click the "Upload..." button, select your DAE file to upload. Select any configuration options. When the DAE to ZIP conversion has completed, you can download your ZIP file straight away.
We aim to process all DAE to ZIP 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 ZIP file, once created is deleted 15 minutes after upload and the download link will expire after this time.
Yes! Our DAE to ZIP 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.
If your DAE file has separate texture (PNG, JPG etc.) files, you can drag and drop these onto the upload tool along with the main DAE file. Our tool will intelligently detect which of these additional files belong with the DAE file. Alternatively, you can place these additional files, along with the DAE file within a ZIP or other compressed archive file and upload that.
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 ZIP 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 is uploaded with accompanying texture files, these will be included in the conversion process.
The ZIP file is one of the most common types of compressed file types available and is widely used to compress any file type and give great compression results leading to smaller file sizes. ZIP files were originally released in 1989 and over time the format has received many revisions.
ZIP archives can contain any number of folders and files and can use many different compression algorithms to perform the file compression, though DEFLATE is the most common one in use. The format has built in support in many operating systems including Mac OS and Microsoft Windows.
