Our free and fast tool will convert most 3D mesh or FBX (Autodesk Filmbox) model files to a standard IDTF (PDF With integrated 3D Models) 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 FBX file click the Upload button above and select the file to convert. Once selected, the file will be converted to a IDTF file and will ready for download shortly afterwards. For more information about the FBX to IDTF conversion process see the conversion information section below for more information.
Here are 2 simple steps to convert your FBX to IDTF.
Our tool can read binary FBX versions 7.0 and above and text formatted FBX files version 6.4 and above. Please ensure your FBX version meets these requirements before uploading.
First click the "Upload..." button, select your FBX file to upload. Select any configuration options. When the FBX to IDTF conversion has completed, you can download your IDTF file straight away.
We aim to process all FBX to IDTF 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 being added every week.
Yes, of course! We do not store the FBX file you submit to us. The resulting IDTF file, once created is deleted 1 hour after upload and the download link will expire after this time.
Yes! Our FBX to IDTF tool will run on any system with a modern web browser. No specialist software is needed to run any of our conversion tools.

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.
The IDTF file format is a bespoke format that enables interactive 3D content to be embedded within a PDF document. Currently only Adobe Reader and PDF-XChange Editor are able to render PDF documents that contain this 3D content.
IDTF files are a simple text-based format containing 3D geometry defined using vertices and faces in a structured hierarchy. Prior to importing the IDTF file to the PDF it must be converted to a U3D file format using one of the free applications such as IDTFConverter.
If your FBX file contains textures, these will be ignored. If a material contains color information this will be translated where possible.
Currently only mesh geometry will be carried over from your source model to the final IDTF file for download.
