Convert Your 3D Mesh/Model DXF Files to 3MF

to

Our free and fast tool will convert most 3D mesh or DXF (Drawing Exchange Format) model files to a standard 3MF (3D Manufacturing Format) file that can then be edited further in most popular 3D editing packages such as Blender or 3D printed without any further processing.

To convert your DXF file click the Upload button above and select the file to convert. Once selected, the file will be converted to a 3MF file and will ready for download shortly afterwards. For more information about the DXF to 3MF conversion process see the conversion information section below for more information.

Description

The DXF file format was first introduced in 1982 as part of Autodesk's AutoCAD software. DXF files were intended at the time to allow data interchange between AutoCAD and other CAD related applications. The format has evolved over the years with the most recent version coming in 2007.

DXF files can contain either text or binary content describing Blocks, Entities, Objects and other information using a "Tagging" system. The DXF format is still popular today and can be opened with most popular CAD applications.

Description

3MF files are a modern 3D file format designed specifically for use with 3D printable models (additive manufacturing). It was designed to be the successor to the popular legacy STL format (also a common format in 3D printing) to overcome the limitations of that format.

The format of 3MF files is XML based that are compressed with the standard Zip file compression resulting in small, easily transferable files. The format supports 3D meshes along with associated materials and textures all contained within the Zip file.

DXF Notes

When imported, DXF files will be converted to 3D geometry comprising vertices and faces using an Extrude method, the extrusion value can be set before the conversion starts. If the DXF file contains color information this will be included where possible.

Supported Features

  • Mesh geometry
  • Mesh colors

3MF Notes

3MF files support material and color information. If your uploaded model contains color information our tool will attempt to save this in the 3MF file at the end of the conversion process. Texture information is not supported at this time.

Supported Features

  • Mesh geometry
  • Face and vertex colors

Unsupported Features

  • Textures
