Convert your JPG file to X

Use our free and fast online tool to convert your JPG (Joint Photographic Experts Group) image or logo into 3D X (Direct X File) mesh/model files suitable for printing with a 3D printer or for loading into your favorite 3D editing package.

How to Convert your JPG to X Online?

Here are three simple steps to create an X file from a JPG file.

Upload a JPG

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

Select your Options

Set the dimensions and other options, and click the "Convert to X" button to convert your JPG to X.

Download your X

Image to X Frequently Asked Questions

What does this tool do?

Our tool converts image (bitmap) data into 3D geometry, which is then saved to the common X file format.

What files does it support?

The JPG to X tool can convert the most common image file formats, such as PNG, JPG or any one of our supported image formats. The output is provided in X format, which can be used in most 3D graphics applications.

How does the tool interpret the image pixel data?

3D geometry is created based on the luminosity of each pixel in the source image. For example, using the default tool settings, a black pixel represents a 3D pixel height of 0mm, and a white pixel represents a 3D pixel height of 10mm. Colors in between these will be converted to a 3D pixel in this range.

What does the "Invert Output" option do?

This option reverses the black-to-white range conversion, so with this option set, a black pixel will be rendered as a 3D pixel of 10mm in height, and a white pixel will be rendered as 0mm.

How do I control the Model detail?

The "Detail" option allows you to control the resolution of the created X file. Low detail will generate the model quickly and result in a smaller file. The High option will take longer to generate and can result in very large download files.

What does the "Enable Smoothing" option do?

With this option, the JPG to X converter will attempt to remove or smooth out any spikes in the resulting X 3D model. Spikes are usually caused by highly contrasting adjacent pixels in the source JPG file.

What is the maximum JPG resolution I can upload?

The JPG you upload can be any size; however, our tool will resize your image to a maximum of 800x800 pixels for normal users, and for premium subscription holders, this is increased to a maximum of 1200x1200 pixels.

Other Frequently Asked Questions

How can I convert my JPG file to X?

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

How long does it take to convert my JPG to X?

We aim to process all JPG to X 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 JPG to X 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 JPG to X on ImageToStl.com?

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

Can I convert my JPG to X on Windows, Linux, Android, iOS or Mac OS?

Yes! Our JPG to X 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 JPG 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.

File Format Information for JPG to X

ExtensionJPG
Full NameJoint Photographic Experts Group
TypeImage
Mime Typeimage/jpeg
FormatBinary
ToolsJPG Converters, Create Cookie Cutter, JPG Viewer
Open WithPaint.NET, Photoshop

Description

The JPG 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 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 JPG is still an ideal format for digital photos.

ExtensionX
Full NameDirect X File
Type3D Model
Mime Typetext/plain
FormatText
ToolsX Converters, 3D Model Voxelizer, Create X Animation, Text to X, X Viewer

Description

The X 3D file format extension was introduced by Microsoft with the launch of Version 2 of their 3D graphics API, Direct X, back in 2002. The format has evolved over the years; however, in 2014, the X file format was deprecated in favor of newer, more capable formats such as FBX.

The format is a simple text-based file capable of storing 3D mesh information such as vertices, faces, normals, and material information. In addition to basic 3D information, the format can also store animations with the X file format, which is primarily used in the development of games.

X Notes

X files support material and color information. If your uploaded model contains color information, our tool will attempt to save this in the X file at the end of the conversion process. Texture information is not supported at this time.

Supported Features

  • Mesh geometry
  • Material colors
  • Textures

Unsupported Features

  • Animations
