Our free and fast tool will convert most 3D mesh or GLB (Graphics Language Transmission Format) model files to a standard ABC (Alembic) 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 GLB file click the Upload button above and select the file to convert. Once selected, the file will be converted to a ABC file and will ready for download shortly afterwards. For more information about the GLB to ABC conversion process see the conversion information section below for more information.
Here are 2 simple steps to convert your GLB to ABC.
First click the "Upload..." button, select your GLB file to upload. Select any configuration options. When the GLB to ABC conversion has completed, you can download your ABC file straight away.
We aim to process all GLB to ABC 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 GLB file you submit to us. The resulting ABC file, once created is deleted 1 hour after upload and the download link will expire after this time.
Yes! Our GLB to ABC 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 GLB 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.
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 modelling applications such as Blender and MeshLab. The GLB format is an open standard which is maintained by the Khronos Group.
If your GLB file contains textures, these will be ignored. If a material contains color information this will be translated where possible.
The ABC (Alembic) file format is a graphics format containing 3D content which was originally developed by Sony Pictures Imageworks and Industrial Light & Magic and released in 2011. The aim of the ABC format is to enable the efficient interchange of 3D assets between different working entities.
The format can contain a variety of 3D object formats including polygon meshes, NURBS, parametric curves and more. The files can be opened by many 3D graphics applications including the popular open-source Blender application.
