Our free and fast tool will convert most 3D mesh or FBX (Autodesk Filmbox) model files to a standard X3D (Extensible 3D Graphics) 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 X3D file and will ready for download shortly afterwards. For more information about the FBX to X3D conversion process see the conversion information section below for more information.
Here are 2 simple steps to convert your FBX to X3D.
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 X3D conversion has completed, you can download your X3D file straight away.
We aim to process all FBX to X3D 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 X3D file, once created is deleted 1 hour after upload and the download link will expire after this time.
Yes! Our FBX to X3D 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 X3D file format was introduced in 2002 as a successor to the 3D VRML (WRL) file format. X3D files contain 3D mesh and model information defined using vertices, faces, normals and material data making it broadly as capable as the older VRML format.
X3D files are structured Xml text based files allowing full 3D scenes containing models comprised of 3D mesh data and other simple shapes. There are browser extensions that allow X3D files to be directly embedded within Html to allow rendering directly to a web page however the format has not seen widespread adoption.
If your FBX file contains textures, these will be ignored. If a material contains color information this will be translated where possible.
X3D files support material and color information. If your uploaded model contains color information our tool will attempt to save this in the X3D file at the end of the conversion process. Texture information is not supported at this time.
