to

Our free and fast tool will convert most 3D mesh or GLB (Graphics Language Transmission Format) 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 GLB 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 GLB to IDTF conversion process see the conversion information section below for more information.

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 modelling applications such as Blender and MeshLab. The GLB format is an open standard which is maintained by the Khronos Group.

Description

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.
