Convert Your 3D Mesh/Model F3D Files to PLY

to

Here we detail how to convert your F3D file to an PLY file using the export options found within the Fusion 360 application. Currently, our converters cannot convert directly from F3D to PLY. 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 PLY converter to complete the conversion process.

How to Convert your F3D to PLY Online?

Here are two simple steps to convert your F3D to PLY.

Open your F3D File

Open your F3D file in Fusion 360 and select the Export to FBX option

Frequently Asked Questions

How long does it take to convert my F3D to PLY?

We aim to process all F3D to PLY conversions as quickly as possible, this usually takes around 5 seconds but can be more for larger more complex files so please be patient.

How accurate is the F3D to PLY conversion?

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.

Is it safe to convert my F3D to PLY on ImageToStl.com?

Yes, of course! We do not store the F3D file you submit to us. The resulting PLY file, once created is deleted 15 minutes after upload and the download link will expire after this time.

Can I convert my F3D to PLY on Windows, Linux, Android, iOS or Mac OS?

Yes! Our F3D to PLY tool will run on any system with a modern web browser. No specialist software is needed to run any of our conversion tools.

What if I am using an Ad Blocker, will that affect things?

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.

What format is my PLY file saved as?

The PLY file generated by our tool will be in the binary little endian format.

Description

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.

Description

The PLY format is a 3D model format originally developed and released in 1994, with its primary use being to store three-dimensional data from 3D digital scanners. The format known as the Polygon File Format or the Stanford Triangle Format can be either a binary or text-based format.

The file format stores 3D geometric information such as vertices, faces, vertex normals, color, and other custom data. The format is still in use, with many PLY models available to download, and PLY files can be loaded into most popular 3D applications, such as Blender.

PLY Notes

PLY files support per-vertex color information. If your uploaded model contains color information, our tool will attempt to save this in the PLY file at the end of the conversion process.

Supported Features

  • Mesh geometry
  • Vertex colors
  • Binary and text versions are supported when converting from PLY
  • Binary-only version when converting to PLY
