Convert Your 3D Mesh/Model GLB Files to XYZ

Our free and fast tool will convert most 3D mesh or GLB (Graphics Language Transmission Format) model files to a standard XYZ (Point Cloud) 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 XYZ file and will ready for download shortly afterwards. For more information about the GLB to XYZ conversion process see the conversion information section below for more information.

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

We aim to process all GLB to XYZ 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 XYZ conversion?

We aim to create the most accurate conversions with our tools. Our tools are under constant development with new features being added every week.

Is it safe to convert my GLB to XYZ on ImageToStl.com?

Yes, of course! We do not store the GLB file you submit to us. The resulting XYZ file, once created is deleted 1 hour after upload and the download link will expire after this time.

Yes! Our GLB to XYZ tool will run on any system with a modern web browser. No specialist software is needed to run any of our conversion tools.

File format information for GLB to XYZ

Extension: GLB

Full Name: Graphics Language Transmission Format

Type: 3D Model

Mime Type: model/gltf-binary

Format: Binary

Extension: XYZ

Full Name: Point Cloud

Type: 3D Model

Mime Type: text/plain

Format: Text

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 XYZ is a 3D file format used for representing 3D Point Clouds. The format contains only positional information (X, Y, Z coordinates) for the individual points. The format is often used for digital elevation modelling of terrain for later processing in 3D modelling applications.

As the format only contains positional information a common task is to convert this into a fully surfaced 3D model using methods such as Alpha Shapes or Delaunay Triangulation. The format can also be viewed without further processing in its raw format.

GLB Notes

If your GLB file contains textures, these will be ignored. If a material contains color information this will be translated where possible.

Supported Features

  • V2.0 and above files only
  • Mesh geometry
  • Mesh material colors

Unsupported Features

  • Textures
  • Animations

XYZ Notes

Only vertex information will be saved to the XYZ Point Cloud file generated by our tool, all other information such as faces and material colors will be discarded in the final file due to this information not being supported.

When creating a preview of the XYZ file our tool will render the Point Cloud as individual squares.

Supported Features

  • Mesh vertex data
