Our free and fast tool will convert most DXF (Drawing Exchange Format) CAD files to a standard FBX (Autodesk Filmbox) 3D model 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 DXF files, up to 25 files at a time can be converted.
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 FBX file and will ready for download shortly afterwards. For more information about the DXF to FBX conversion process see the conversion information section below for more information.
Here are 2 simple steps to convert your DXF to FBX.
First click the "Upload..." button, select your DXF file to upload. Select any configuration options. When the DXF to FBX conversion has completed, you can download your FBX file straight away.
We aim to process all DXF to FBX 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 DXF file you submit to us. The resulting FBX file, once created is deleted 15 minutes after upload and the download link will expire after this time.
Yes! Our DXF to FBX 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 DXF 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 DXF tool supports full batch conversions. You can upload up to 25 DXF files at a time. Our tool will convert them all as quickly as possible. Once completed, you can either download the FBX files individually or download them all in a single ZIP file.
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.
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.
The FBX format by AutoDesk was originally developed by Kaydara in the 1990s as a means to store 2D or 3D content with motion data. It has evolved over the years to become a widely used format by 3D modelling applications such as Blender, 3D Studio Max and others due to its 3D animation capabilities.
The format is used to contain 3D models which includes vertices, faces and other 3D geometry along with animation data. The format is proprietary however there is a publicly available API to use for development purposes. The file contents can be either text or binary and work has been carried out by the Blender Foundation to document the format.
If your original model file contains texture images and other texture related data, these will be included in final FBX file.
