Use our free and fast online tool to convert your JPEG (Joint Photographic Experts Group) image or logo into 3D PLY (Stanford Triangle Format) mesh/model files suitable for printing with a 3D printer or for loading into your favourite 3D editing package.
Here are 3 simple steps to create an PLY file from a JPEG file.
The JPEG image you upload can be any size, however our tool will resize it to a maximum of 600x600 pixels for normal users and for those who have paid for a premium subscription this is increased to a maximum of 1000x1000 pixels.
The PLY file generated by our tool will be in the binary little endian format.
First click the "Upload..." button, select your JPEG file to upload. Select any configuration options. When the JPEG to PLY conversion has completed, you can download your PLY file straight away.
We aim to process all JPEG to PLY 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 JPEG file you submit to us. The resulting PLY file, once created is deleted 1 hour after upload and the download link will expire after this time.
Yes! Our JPEG to PLY 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 JPEG 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 JPEG file format is a popular image format most commonly used for the storage of digital photographs. The format implements a lossy-compression technology that allows for high levels of file compression with little perceptible loss of image quality making it an ideal format for photographs.
This format is one of the most used formats on the internet today with its small file sizes making it ideal for website images. Although there are newer image formats that may offer higher compression and quality the JPEG is still and idela format for digital photos.
The PLY format is a 3D model format originally developed and released in 1994 with its primary use being to store three-dimensional data from 3D digital scanners. The format known as the Polygon File Format and also the Stanford Triangle Format can be either a binary or text based format.
The file format stores 3D geometric information such as vertices, faces, vertex normals, color and other custom data. The format is still in use with many PLY models available to download and PLY files can be loaded into most popular 3D applications such as Blender.
PLY files support per vertex color information. If your uploaded model contains color information our tool will attempt to save this in the PLY file at the end of the conversion process.
