Convert Your 3D Mesh/Model GCODE Files to GLB

Our free and fast tool will convert most 3D mesh or GCODE (G-code) model files to a standard GLB (Graphics Language Transmission Format) file that can then be edited further in most popular 3D editing packages such as Blender or 3D printed without any further processing. Our conversion tool can also batch convert multiple GCODE files; up to 25 files at a time can be converted.

To convert your GCODE file, click the Upload button above and select the file to convert. Once selected, the file will be converted to a GLB file and will be ready for download shortly afterwards. For more information about the GCODE to GLB conversion process, see the conversion information section below.

File Format Information for GCODE to GLB

Mime Typetext/plain

ToolsGCODE Converters, 3D Model Voxelizer, Create GCODE Animation, GCODE Viewer

Description

The GCODE file format is the native file format used by CNC machines and 3D printers as a means to coordinate the movement and actions of these machines. In the case of FDM 3D printers, the file contains commands to move the extruder to specific locations and the rate with which to extrude the plastic filament onto the build plate.

A GCODE is a plain text file containing lists of commands, with each command appearing on a new line within the file. These commands control how the CNC machine or 3D printer operates and creates a particular 3D object. GCODE is a standard format and is usually generated by 3D printing slicer software from standard 3D model formats such as STL.

Description

The GLB file format, which can also have the GLTF file extension depending on whether the content is binary or text/JSON, is a 3D file format used to describe 3D worlds and, as such, contains geometric data such as vertices, faces, normals, animations, and other 3D scene-related data.

The format, described by its creators as the "JPEG of 3D", has gained in popularity and is supported by a wide range of 3D modeling applications such as Blender and MeshLab. The GLB format is an open standard that is maintained by the Khronos Group.

GLB Notes

If your original model file contains texture images and other texture-related data, these will be included in the final GLB file.

Frequently Asked Questions

How can I convert my GCODE file to GLB?

First click the "Upload..." button, select your GCODE file to upload. Select any configuration options. When the GCODE to GLB conversion has completed, you can download your GLB file straight away.

How long does it take to convert my GCODE to GLB?

We aim to process all GCODE to GLB 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 GCODE to GLB 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 GCODE to GLB on ImageToStl.com?

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

Can I convert my GCODE to GLB on Windows, Linux, Android, iOS or Mac OS?

Yes! Our GCODE to GLB 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 GCODE 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.

Can I get support with converting my GCODE to GLB?

Yes. When you have converted your GCODE to GLB, there is a "Feedback" option that you can use to let us know of any issues you encountered when converting your file.

I have several GCODE files; can I batch convert my GCODE to GLB?

Yes! Our GCODE tool supports full batch conversions. You can upload up to 25 and GCODE files at a time. Our tool will convert them all as quickly as possible. Once completed, you can either download the GLB files individually or download them all in a single ZIP file.
