Here we detail how to convert your F3D file to an DAE file using the export options found within the Fusion 360 application. Currently our converters cannot convert directly from F3D to DAE, however using the built-in export functions of Fusion 360 we can achieve the conversion.
Firstly, you will need to load your F3D file into Fusion 360 and select the export to FBX option. Once you have your file in the FBX format you can use our FBX to DAE converter to complete the conversion process.
Here are 2 simple steps to convert your F3D to DAE.
Use our FBX to DAE converter to complete the conversion
We aim to process all F3D to DAE 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 F3D file you submit to us. The resulting DAE file, once created is deleted 15 minutes after upload and the download link will expire after this time.
Yes! Our F3D to DAE 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 F3D 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! If your F3D file contains textured geometry, the texture image files along with the texture coordinates (UV data) will be exported with the final DAE file.
The F3D file format is a CAD format developed by Autodesk primarily for Computer Aided Design (CAD) and Printed Circuit Design (PCB) applications and is the native file format used by the Fusion 360 application. The format was introduced in 2013 and continues to be developed today.
The F3D format itself is proprietary and can be opened with the Fusion 360 application which is available for both commercial and home users.
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.
Our tool will save any texture files separately, these additional files will be included with your final DAE file at the time of download.
