Convert Your 3D Mesh/Model GLB Files to VTP

Our free and fast tool will convert most 3D mesh or GLB (Graphics Language Transmission Format) model files to a standard VTP (Visualization Toolkit) 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 GLB files, up to 25 files at a time can be converted.

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 VTP file and will ready for download shortly afterwards. For more information about the GLB to VTP conversion process see the conversion information section below for more information.

How to Convert your GLB to VTP Online?

Here are 2 simple steps to convert your GLB to VTP.

Upload a GLB

Click the "Upload a GLB File" button and select a GLB to upload. The maximum file size is 100MB.

Download your VTP

Click the download link once completed to receive your VTP file.

Frequently Asked Questions

How can I convert my GLB file to VTP?

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

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

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

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

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

Yes! Our GLB to VTP 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 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.

I have several GLB files, can I batch convert my GLB to VTP?

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

How does it work?

Converting from the GLB file format to VTP can be a complex process and any tool used for this conversion process needs to be able to handle a variety of data conversion tasks as well as identify any defects within the 3D model and fix them. Here we will explain the conversion process used by our tool to accurately convert your GLB file to a valid VTP 3D model. Lets start with the conversion process, which involves the following steps:

Step 1: Read the Source GLB File

In its simplest form, an GLB file is a binary data file containing 3D data such as vertices, faces, normals and more. When combined, these make up the 3D model you see on your screen.

When our tool reads in this 3D data all we are interested in are the vertices, faces and normals as this is the only data that can be accurately converted into the final VTP file.

The GLB file can contain other data such as material definitions and textures that describe how a particular set of 3D geometry should be rendered. As we are creating an VTP file, which does not support materials and textures, we will be ignoring this data if it is present in the GLB file.

Step 2: Process File Data

With the GLB file data read, our tool generates an internal representation of the full 3D model and will attempt to fix any geometry issues encountered. Along with repairing any issues with the 3D model, the tool will remove any duplicated vertices and prepare the model ready for exporting to the VTP format.

Step 3: Saving to the VTP Format

With the conversion process entering its final stages, our tool now needs to take the in-memory 3D model we have created in step 2 and convert this to the VTP format.

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.

GLB Notes

If your GLB file contains texture files and other texture related data, these will be included in the conversion process.

Description

The VTP file format is a 3D modelling and graphics format supported by the Visualization Toolkit. Created in the '90s the Visualization Toolkit provides a series of data and visual tools for advanced 3D modelling applications. Some example functions of the toolkit include polygon simplification, mesh repair and smoothing and more.

The format has evolved over the years. Starting out as a simple text-based format that could be edited within a simple text editor. Additional features have been added over the years with the most recent version of the format supporting an Xml based format.

VTP Notes

Any model converted to the VTP format will be stored in a triangulated mesh format.

Supported Features

  • Polygon mesh
  • Triangle strip-base mesh
