Our free and fast tool will convert most 3D mesh or DXF (Drawing Exchange Format) model files to a standard PCD (Point Cloud Library) 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 PCD file and will ready for download shortly afterwards. For more information about the DXF to PCD conversion process see the conversion information section below for more information.
Here are 2 simple steps to convert your DXF to PCD.
First click the "Upload..." button, select your DXF file to upload. Select any configuration options. When the DXF to PCD conversion has completed, you can download your PCD file straight away.
We aim to process all DXF to PCD 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 PCD file, once created is deleted 1 hour after upload and the download link will expire after this time.
Yes! Our DXF to PCD 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.
|Full Name||Drawing Exchange Format|
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.
|Full Name||Point Cloud Library|
|Type||3D Model/Point Cloud|
PCD files are a Point Cloud 3D format created to enable high speed loading and saving of Point Cloud data to either text-based format of a compressed binary format.
